Too hot to open

Waiting for the bisque to be complete, lots of pots that might need glazing are just sitting inside, baking hot!  Well, not many of our ovens can get this hot, can they! (Fahrenheit)

    1. You wrote your comment at 3:04 am, and that's about when I peeked outside and saw the snow plow had come...but it was still snowing. Doesn't look that bad, now that I've got coffee in hand.

  2. Potters are always waiting. Waiting for the pots to dry, waiting for the kilns to cool, waiting, waiting, waiting...

    1. And then there's the beginning phase, trying to center too fast and open that pot and pull it up too fast. So pottery must be the effort of living more slowly, eh?

Looking forward to hearing from you! Since I didn't know the 1000+ people who supposedly looked at my blog the other day, I'm back to moderating comments. If that doesn't help, I don't know why blogger doesn't have a filter that stops this hacking...
