We finally had snow today. We expected 2-4 inches, and well, the missed, we got 10.
If your not a snow lover, this winter has been perfect. Below is a photo of one my Garden Totems, with the little bit of snow we had gotten until now.
It amazes me how fast the year goes by. In the pottery world, when preparing for shows, we have to plan months ahead of time. We generally don’t fire our kiln unless it can be fully loaded, as it would be a waste of energy otherwise. We have to make our work, trim our work and let our work dry. (depending on the weather conditions, this could take over a week.) We then do our first firing, called the bisque. After that work cools, we then prepare and glaze our work for the second firing. If all goes well, we then pack our work for our next show or for gallery sales.
Here we are staring the Holiday Season in the face and I am certainly not ready. I have 3 small shows to prepare for, and several galleries that need stocking.
leries and shows. There will definitely be a few special added treasures as well.
