Today I'm going to take it easy.
After such a hectic day yesterday, I need it.
I'm hoping my two little houses are dry enough to put the glazes on, so they can go into the last class firing tonight.
When I go to class tonight I expect to find two more of my houses fired, and it will be interesting to see how they came out with MY glazes on them. I hope they are good.
I'm going over to Botany today to get some more clay. I am going to start making my totem pole sculpture now that I've got the houses done.
ABOVE: Just look at how fast they are growing!
Not to be left out:
ABOVE: Tallulah in the puppy basket. She likes climbing in it. I think it's because it smells like her puppies.
Right, that's all for now, catch ya later...
1.08 pm: Been busy-ish this morning. Went over to Botany and picked up the 2nd piece of furniture I ordered.
ABOVE: The little 'coffee table'.......
ABOVE: And the 'Butlers Trolley'.
Once I get my Blue LED tree up for Christmas I'm going to park it under the tree and put the Christmas presents on it.
I've done ALL the Christmas gift wrapping! Yaaaa. Massive load off my mind.
Now I can start glazing my little houses.
Pottery tonight: I had two houses in the kiln. And the kiln had a mis-firing, one of the elements died. So all the pots in the kiln did not reach temperature. So they have to be re-fired. My houses look like they are a DISASTER. I'm thinking one of my glazes was 'wrong' somehow. So, they will probably be going straight into the bin.
I glazed the two little outhouses using one different glaze and fingers crossed they come out better.
But we might not get them back from the firing till next year. *sigh*
That means no one in the family will be getting a little house for Christmas. I'm gutted.
End of Day: well another fairly busy day... with a bit of a shitty end.
At least the 'right' person won The X Factor!
