Rarely have I been so glad to put a day behind me. It was Ro's Birthday, a happy day to celebrate, but life handed us other duties. It was productive. We glazed pots to load 2 kilns, before loading Morgan and Shyanne carried the kiln shelves upstairs to the patio so I could resurface them, then carried them back downstairs so Ro could recoat them with kilnwash. Morgan and Shyanne also put up the sale tent for us and set up the tables. We finished the glazing and loading about 11PM, but then had to trim and burnish most of the pie bakers. 6 more await me in the morning. It's now 12:30, Ro has gone to bed and I am following her just as soon as I can get these pictures uploaded. Tomorrow is another busy day. Tomorrow Ro has some Creative Oasis duties to attend to and I will spend the morning trimming those pie bakers and perhaps throwing a few more vases for the Raku firings on Saturday. When Mike comes to help I think we'll price the finished pieces and start to set up the tables for this weekend and maybe get started on the pieces we need for the next event.
For now..it was a good days work and I'll worry about it all tomorrow.
I AM excited..I think this could be a beautiful couple of firings.
