that no matter what you do work can take a detour.
There are many times that work just clicks along, we all love that don't we?
You clock in, work, have lunch, work, take a break , work and go home.
Then there are times that no matter what the plan is a roadblock is put in place. When this happens there is nothing, nothing you can do but go with it.
In repairing the broken wire in the box below the ceramic piece, just like the one that you see on top, broke in half.
There is nothing to be done but order a new one.
This means that the kiln that was going to fire last week, which was moved to fire this week, has now been moved to the wait stage while we wait for the parts.
If only the local wally world carried kiln parts....
The only thing to do is go back to the wheel.
The wheel is always there just waiting for some clay to be tossed at it.
So while we wait we throw.
( Look Mom, math!)
This one is a tad bigger with a larger opening to get into the jar with a 1/2 cup measure.
I made 3 and I hope that one will be perfect.
To go with the jar will be a garlic jar.
The first one had a wiggle in it that I needed to cut off making it too small. The middle one is a good shape but maybe too narrow in the opening, the last one has a larger opening and I think is just right.
Today would have been the best day to fire Ms. B. but....... because we have some other things that we need to get done this week and weekend we have moved her to next week as well.
He is no slacker and hit the wheel as well.
After all there can never be too many pots in the bisque bank.
Hopefully we will be showing you some fired results next week.
I am all for things turning around.
