Why is Paws on the top of the car?
Well Gary Rith has Penny and I have....Paws and Clayton. Paws decided she wanted to go along with me today to Blowing Rock. I'm sure she wanted to hunt a bit and than walk into my booth with a Grey Wolf or Mountain Lion, drop it at my feet and than demand that I feed her the usual dry food. This week Clayton delivered a squirrel underneath my wheel the very night and I was in and out turning up the kiln. Anyways...Aydan came out and said "Mom, why is Paws on the car?" She just blends right in with my tent - see if you can find her.
For some reason this go around, getting pots ready for Blowing Rock was a real challenge for me. I'm not sure I'll do this next summer but never say never. Many factors and yes...my pug mill is still not done. The clay I had to substitute with just turned out really bad! When I got it out of the bisque kiln it just felt grainy and not at all like porcelain. It didn't like my glaze much either but what could I do? I needed to make pots and had none of my porcelain to use. I did finally get some this week but of course it was to late. Once again, just par for the course when your a slave to your material. Here is the best thing that came out of the first kiln. I think I'll keep this one for some photo's next week.
