The firing is quickly approaching. I'm in the last week of making pots, loading starts next Monday. A young potter from the University of Wisconsin-Platteville is coming out tomorrow to help with wood prep, and will also be around for the loading/firing. Looks like we will have a full kiln.
Christy's also been making time on occasion to come out and decorate a pot or two.
Krista Loomans came over the other day with a portable wheel!
How cool is that! You can't see it from the picture, but it has legs underneath that fold out. It's a surprisingly nice wheel, it's owned by Bethel Horizons who Krista works for. Krista and I had an enjoyable day throwing together, and chit chatting. It's was good fun, and we are hoping to make a regular occasion of it.
Last and not least we found ourselves a pugmill!
the pug mill itself is clogged full of dried clay and hasn't been used in 10 years, but it was working when they last used it, so with a little elbow grease it should be up and going.... best part? $100.
Sorry if the post is a little scattered... lots going on.... and past time for me to go to bed....
