More bowls and stuff...

Last night, more decorating and a little throwing. There was a glaze kiln going - I've got two pieces in there. It was at 1400 F and climbing when I left at 9 PM, so it will probably be cooled off late tonight or early tomorrow. With any luck, I'll have two new pots to share the next time I come home from the studio.

Hot kiln.

Bowl, waiting for a bisque. I hope I don't screw up the glazing...

"Egg pots" - the one on the right wasn't cooperating with me, so I trimmed off the lip and bellied it out more. Now it's more bowl than vase.

Bowls, decorated, drying.

Bisqueware, awaiting some glazing.

That's it on the pottery front. If you're in Fort Collins this weekend, come check out the Guild's booth at New West Fest. It's supposed to be a good time. Plus, free music. Really.

Speaking of music, I have to note that pioneering musician and inventor Les Paul passed away today. He was 94. He was a living legend, and a musical icon who spanned generations. His contributions to guitarists and recording artists of all makes will not be forgotten.
