Another studio view.
Working on making new green and blue glazes for landscapes.
The last of the firewood for the coming winter. Will have to get more.
Getting ready for winter - water supply in the buckets and fan in the window for when the wood burning stove fills the room with smoke - which happens every once and a while.
The plaster life-sized work is for another time. Back to the small porcelains.
I think there will be plaster in my future. Here is a hairdo on a life-sized ceramic head.
It seems that I return to making birds every 10 years or so - here's one of the new ones - a catbird.
Yeah! The new kiln has arrived.
Susan B Anthony, 2014, glazed porcelain, 4.5 inches high. I love having her in my woodshop. She doesn't put up with nonsense.
Glaze sample table
While waiting for the new kiln I've been organizing glazes. This will make it so much easier to find what I'm looking for.
Sadly my kiln that I got on ebay for $300. is beyond repair.
Kiln loaded with new birds. I hope the kiln makes it. I bought it used and have repaired it numerous times. I think it's from the 1970's.
TIme for spring cleaning and changing kiln elements
Listening to Proust - I didn't realize how often he speaks of flowers in "Remembrance of Things Past" - and working from the flowers that are just blooming. Heaven!
