Good Morning Everyone,
I just finished loading two bisc kilns, I thought I would have one, but apparently I have been moire productive than I thought. Before this I loaded a glaze kiln at the Oasis and before that I had a lovely dinner with my brother and his family who were in town for the weekend.
It was kind of a long day. It was one of those days where I started out tired and became more so as the day wore on. Ro and I got up around 8, planning on leaving to go to the salt kiln around 9 or 10 after stopping for breakfast out. Since it was a football weekend here in State College we decided to go out to a little place on the way to the salt kiln site called "Rony's Place" it's a family style restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, dinner includes pizza. Apparently the wife and husband had separate businesses, one was a family restaurant and the other was a pizzeria and eventually they combined the businesses.I love stopping there. I've had lunch twice and breakfast once. It was thoughtfully prepared food, very fresh and tasty. Sometime soon I'd like to try the pizza.
After Rony's place we went to the salt kiln, I had 3 plates and about 8 tankards, 2 of which had cracked..apparently the clay body I use don't always respond well to the salt..but honestly these are the first problems I've had. Overall I am very pleased. There was a lot of good work in the kiln. I am happy to have so many talented friends and associates.
