Both the good and bad kind:
The good: I am in love with this – a Wireless Photo Upload card … I realize I take a lot of pictures – between dogs, kids, puppies, family and my fused glass/crafts. I’ve never understood folks who can use their camera SD card (or other storage card) for months (to YEARS) at a time without needing to transfer the images – my dad is one of those folks. Anyway, I upload pics multiple times a week, if not daily. But this program/device/thingy … sends the images right to my computer within seconds of taking them. I’d researched one by a famous name brand (the makers of my camera), to the tune of $150, and seriously considered it. This bad boy (Eye-Fi) was $40! Too Cool!
The bad: Here’s another bowl that came out of my recent coffin slump run … It’s stunning – but the back/bottom has a problem I’ve not encountered before. Very unsightly. The other day, DH helped scrub off kiln wash, and the blank was cleaned and eye-clear before slumping. Makes me wonder if he used some weird man-tool or compound/solvent??? Hmmm … I’ll be playing with coldworking (not fun for me) to see if I can salvage the bowl or add to my collection of studio work bowls …
But not right now … now it’s time to think dinner thoughts. It’s a good day to BBQ, I think. And maybe take some pictures (like my growing Chayote!) …
What a beautiful bowl! I hope you can get the back cleared. Do you have access to a sand blaster? That may be an option to smoothing the back of the bowl, although it would then have a matte finish and it wouldn’t be crystal clear. Just a thought. I’m going to have to check out your Eye-Fi I too take a lot of pictures and spend too much time uploading.
BTW – I love the gadgets that you have been posting!
Have sandblasted the bowl since posting … it’s better but still there … back to coldworking or bust, darnit! Thanks for suggesting.
Technology – it’s so cool (when I understand it!) 🙂
