What's New

This week brought a couple of nice things. Tina has been showing our little English Cocker "Izzy "in UKC shows.The other day we got official notification that she whas the third best English Cocker in the country and was invited to the Top Ten Show in June. I don't think Tina has told her yet, we don't want it to go to her head.

Other good things came out of the gas kiln at Middletown. I've been trying to glaze some of the big jars I made earlier this winter and they are looking pretty good. What's not good is the captions Picassa is not letting me make so in no particular order, we have Temmoku with copper red, green apple celadon, a couple of dark green Oribe pots and the big boy has fake ash and fake salt ( but the jar is real ). I don't know how I feel about the denim colored soup mug yet but it is growing on me.Maybe a contrasting rim would help? Let me know what you think. Thanks for stopping by.


  1. I come from a family of dog show handlers and dog breeders, you definitely don't want to tell the dog it does go to their head, but on the other hand if you tell them they out perform due to their increased ego and they win more. great results, that tenmoku is super.

  2. Interesting shot of the kiln- I think it is a little bigger than mine with a more rounded arch. I fire on propane (two burners in the front)

  3. gz- Thanks for the comments. The kiln is a Bailey 18/24 natural gas w/2 power burners.
