Had some successes, a failure(!) and slow, but steady progress in the studio:
My square bowls … wouldn’t fit in my production kiln, so ‘energy-conscious’ gal that I am, I loaded the coffin up. I will now, [eventually] be making three square bowls (only have the one mold). And I’ve got a few pieces of another experiment in there (a ‘woven’ bowl). I say pieces, as they wouldn’t all fit! I figure it will be a few weeks before I can process, assemble and finish all of these in an energy-conscious way, DARNIT!
Meanwhile, DH played in the studio. He had an idea for a blank, explained his end-goal vision and I let him have at it. Oops! Needless to say, his vision and the actual output aren’t in alignment … can you say ‘DUKEY’!?!
I’m making progress on my peacock platter. Having issue with the fusing adhesive I’m using (it’s called ‘No Days’) … it’s taking forever to dry (like almost a week!)!! I don’t know if it’s Michigan’s humidity or what? But, I finally have it grouted, and will be waiting for THAT to dry … and move on to clean up, fusing and slumping.
