Our 2nd Vit pull …
And dinner. First (and most important) – we made our favorite cold weather soup (Acorn squash soup)! But this time, we used a butternut squash. Yep – just one – cuz it was just that big (- and from my Mother-in-law’s abandoned garden … from November!) It changed the flavor a bit – but nothing a touch of buttermilk and half-&-half couldn’t overcome!
And then I tried this recipe. So easy, and so much better than I remember in my youth. I went with the nutmeg (not sure that I’m a fan) and added some ground mustard. I’ll play with it a bit – but it sure is promising!
So, on to our 2nd vitrigraph kiln pull. Much better consistency – once we elevated our clay pot and opened up the hole (both in the pot and in the kiln floor). Here were my color choices:
And this is what we got … some 21 feet in cane. Most of it (to my eye) in a camo-color … Not my first choice for an Object D’art … but a learning lesson, for sure!
I officially head back to work in … 2 DAYS. I’m excited. No – really, I am. Someone please remind me of that about 20 minutes after I get to work on Saturday. (We’re in the middle of a renovation … Those TOTALLY stink when you’re trying to work through them!)
