Bowls are done...2 with lady bugs. Hope the 2 plates are ok. But only one has been glaze fired.
Plates take so long to get fired, the space in the kiln is used best by tall and medium size objects apparently.
So I've got things I'm holding back from putting to be glaze fired, in hopes that these little plates will get into the next kiln load. I am fine with sharing each kiln load with lots of other students and members of our community studio...just why are they all making flat things at the same time I am? Strange. I need some voodoo or something to help them be interested in making maybe tall vases?
Well, whenever it happens, it happens. I've learned that is the only way to wait for my turn. I may be first in line, but the kiln gods are crazy.
Quote for today (I should find one about patience, shouldn't I?)
Art makes life bearable. It isn't a luxury. Like our capacity for understanding, and our experience of love, it is a vitally important part of life.
