Tuesday Night

Had an abbreviated session in the studio Tuesday night, which will become the norm. Krystal is taking Tae Kwan Do and so I have just over 2 hours to get up to the studio, do some work, and come back. Which is great. It won't be marathon production evening, but it will be enough to go up and do some trimming, decorating, glazing, recycling - general upkeep sort of work - or throw a couple pieces.

No pictures yet, sorry, but I have gotten a few new finished pieces out of the kiln this week, so I'll get those pictures up sometime soon.

Last night I was able to get in some trimming and slipping (applying the slip - the first step in the sgraffito process), and also threw a set of cups. I'm pretty sure they'll be cups instead of mugs, because I don't really want to put handles on them. Also, because I used one of these (see picture below) to enjoy some hot tea last night, and thought maybe it could use a few friends. So I have a half dozen of these little guys waiting to be decorated.

My tea cup.

So, that's all for now. I'll be back in the studio Thursday night to finish up those cups and trim some more plates, as well as apply some handles to mugs that need them. Not happy about that, but oh well.

And last but not least, Happy Birthday to my beautiful wife!
