Finally Firing!!

Our weather has gone from in the 30’s C. for the past 6 weeks or so, to 16 C. this morning, with a high of 20 C. for the day!! I’ve had my kiln loaded with a bisque firing since June because I had hoped to get a bisque and glaze firing done the last week of June, but the temperatures went up to 30 C. and has stayed hot since. So, today I’m doing the bisque firing, but we’ve been hearing thunder since we got up this morning, so worried that we can end up with power outage. I have my fingers and toes crossed.

Only about 400 degrees more which will take about another 4 hours.

It is actually raining.

Soap Dishes

I’ve been trying to make a soap dish, where the soap can drain or sit up out of the dish. I made some different shapes and sizes.

The soap dish has a grid, so the soap can drain.

I think the ‘grid’ is too small for the dish.

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas and thank you to everyone who has supported me, through your purchases and positive comments. I have kept busy supplying the stores and galleries where I sell my pots, in Grand Forks, Castlegar and Nelson. Over the past 8 months, I have missed the face to face contact with everyone, and looking forward to when it is safe again. Wishing everyone a safe, healthy and happy New Year. IMG_8918
