Yesterday we spent most of the day working together to get many of the production pots and Christmas orders glazed.
Mark does the base and I pick up the top glazing.
When we do this, I can look back at the end of the day with some sense of satisfaction seeing all the work that is ready for the kiln.
That means a bit more thought and a bit more work.
It will go slower.....
I don't know if you can see my writing on the pots, but I usually take a pencil and put a little code on the pieces. If I do this ahead then I don't have to think about them one by one later.
Lamp bases in blk/2ash.
It is great to have them in the store when someone is ready for one or two right on the spot.
He, of course, will still take orders for custom sizes.
I don't know what his decision on these will be maybe red/wop.
Mark and I have become committed to walking in the mornings.
We have at least 3 different places we can go depending on the amount of time we can put in.
We find on the days that we are walking we need to get up a bit earlier in order to slam a coffee before we head out.
I am finding the morning darkness a bit harder on my mental abilities to go.
It is a test to go out while it is still dark to walk.
When we started this morning walking it was light before 6, then 6:30 and now it is not even light at 7.
You know it is easier to hide under the coves in the winter when it is cold and dark outside, this will be a challenge.
I am collected seed heads off the volunteer marigolds.
These are amazing, so full and pretty. I think they grew better in the yard than they did in the raised bed last year. Of course this is what a wet, wet, wet spring and summer will get you.
