New Baby in the House
Saturday morning, Blondie and I headed for Lexington to pick up the kiln and visit for a spell.She was the best dog in the world except for that one jerk on the leash that made my complementary hot dog fall to the floor.( I think that was a calculated move but she denies it). I ran into other Clay Alliance friends and had a great time. I went to a couple of workshops. Arthur Kettner was doing one on image transfer with Mayco products and Matthew Gaddie did a very nice slide show and talk on building a small basic soda kiln that has moved me one step closer to changing my stack of bricks into a kiln.. The gang at Mudworks loaded the kiln for me and we headed home, very pleased with the kiln, the workshops, and the hospitality.
When I got home, I sent an email out to the Clay Alliance members and sold my old kiln within 24 hours.Those connections really pay off. The couple that bought it even helped me unload the new kiln and get it stacked! Great weekend.
Lastly, I started new kid classes last week.I'm open to project suggestions if anyone wants to chime in. 2nd thru 5th graders.
