like Christmas, but warmer
(pottery by Gary Rith)
I don't feel like cr@p on toast, really I don't, although I could swear that despite 4 four-leaf clovers this morning that the wife brought home the guinea piglet flu from her travels, but then again, you open the kiln and although I made a mistake on one or two items (some glazes are fussy and you have to remember to pamper them) the overall results today are most stunning.
My non-potter friends will not know the feeling: opening a good kiln firing is like Christmas morning, although occaisionally the stocking may hold a rock.
Lynda wanted to see seals on sugar bowls and the 2 smaller ones just came out. Mmmmmm so good...
Also making some really big and whacked pieces today and better drag my azz back down and finish them all.....
