Here we are and it is fully summer.
Summer, like its cousin winter, comes around once a year no matter how hard you might try to hold it back.
Our words changed to, " hot enough for you"? To which I always think, "heck yeah."
Or I think, it has been hotter.
We had a week or two that hit 105 back a few summers ago. In my mind the 90's are hot enough and I and thankful for the less than 100.
I have found that with the teaching comes hours away from the studio and here. I have such good intentions on keeping the blog up to date. But we know where those go on a given day.
This last trip Mark and I rode mostly in silence. We both are so talked out about all that needs to be done that we just pack a bag and go.
That seems to be slowing down.
We have been working on making enough pots to fire. I have taken some red clay on some of my days at school and worked it up to see what it does at cone 6. It is interesting,soft, and a bit sticky compared to the stoneware I thrown here. There are things I like about it and things that stump me, such as glazing them.
I am still working on that.
Last night was eggplant.
So sweet and creamy.
We are working on a load to glaze and I had better turn my attention to work here before the days slip away on me and I am back at the school.
Call me- let's do lunch!
