I am glad to report that I have a little pottery news to report for a change. Thank goodness. I was about one post away from a web cam and a harmonica. My friend Mike had invited some of us to put a few pots into his gas kiln last week. Well, I've heard you can never have too much Shino so I stuck to Shino with Iron Oxide sprinkled on. I have also begun spritzing the iron with water after sprinkling it on from a big salt shaker. The water seemed to help it stick and run a little. I like the results.
I also have been making a supply of bisque fired bowls. they are a little bigger and a lot rounder than last years design but would still bake an individual casserole or a dessert for two. Ok make that the other way around. I know you like dessert better than casserole.
Finally, I heard that potters in Australia actually clean their wheels. That was just too much to consider but I did clean off a table this week. I don't expect it to last so I took a picture.
