I haven't done anything creative in over two months. This made me so happy. These subfloors will eventually be covered with reclaimed wood from an old house in Milwaukee, but since we have to take all the nails out, refinish, etc, not to mention other projects that are higher on our todo list, it will be a while. In the meantime, I'd rather look at at pretty little things than dirty old subfloor.
Guess what? I gave her giant braids, now she's my favorite. This is why I don't throw things away, even when they blow up in the kiln. There's always a bigger, better opportunity to experiment and learn a few tricks, and that's the most exciting aspect of this work.
5 casualties. Precious, unpredictable, time consuming things. It took 5 days of cleaning, refining, and polishing just to get them into the kiln. Collecting the pieces I can gather(a lot is pure dust), planning on what greater things I can make with them. My record of consistently blowing up stoneware(this only happens with stoneware!) will not keep me down.
