No, it's not a furniture sale... I had a little disappointment in the studio, this is what happens when I rush a bisque firing with pieces that are too wet.. shards everwhere..
I blew the bottom right out of a piece that I was sure would become a favourite. I should never count clay chickens before they hatch -or assume that a new clay body will take the same abuse as the one I usually use.
Why was I in such a hurry to fire these pieces? I'm planning to use them in a Naked Raku workshop that I will be hosting at StudioElan tomorrow. Barbara Van Sickle is coming to share her raku techniques with some of the members of the Kawartha Potter's Guild. This is the first workshop I have ever hosted and I'm quite excited. I'm hoping to do more events like this. Of course, now I have to go and clean the studio... Why is it that I can be excited about cleaning the studio but hate the very thought of housework???
