We are getting another serious snowstorm today. I am all for more snow, as I like both cross-country skiing and extra cushioning when I wipe out on the ice. You practically needed crampons to get across the yard this past week! I made some Cardew-style bisque molds today while Joe worked on the house and Charley slept. (On another note, Charley may have broken his own record for sleep this past weekend. We went out on Saturday night, and subsequently slept in on Sunday-- aside from rising a few times to check to see if anyone had put bacon or pork chops in his dish, (no dice there) Charley slept from approximately 5 pm on Saturday until 2 pm on Sunday. You would have thought he was the one who guzzled an excessive amount of wine at Cafe Four!)
This is my first foray into bisque molds--I have been using plaster and wood molds, but I thought I would be a Pioneer Potter on this snowy day. I learned (the long, hard, asymmetrical way, of course) that taking lots of time with molds pays off in the long run, so I'll work slowly on finishing them tomorrow.
