Tuesday I fired my (tightly loaded) bisque kiln.  Thankfully, despite a strong thunder-storm, the power stayed on (as Nick said, I must have done SOMETHING good…”).  Yesterday, as I was planning to head down to the studio for an afternoon session, the power went out (and was out until a bit before 8 pm).  This lead to a bit of a schedule change…

Things you CANNOT do in a pottery studio without power:

  • Trim pots
  • Throw some more pots

Things you CAN do in a pottery studio without power:

  • Recycle and wedge clay
  • Clean (oh joy!)
  • Organize bisque-ware for 2 glaze firings

Chess pieces and test plates all mocked up for glaze firing
