Loadin' in the Rain...


and sleet, and snow! We had a chilly afternoon featuring the wide array of lovely Wisconsin "spring" weather. As far as loading went, we decided that the sleet was preferable to rain or snow (it kind of bounced off the greenware), although Julie and I have red, windburned faces from spending the afternoon being pelted in the face 25 mph winds and ...precipitation. We really need to build a studio that is closer to the kiln. All in due time...

Joe is bundled up in his sexy tan canvas coveralls to spend the night candling the kiln, and Julie or I will relieve him in the early morning. Hope for warmer weather!
