Today I am working on my blog that has not been updated in a long time. I don't know how I feel about a blog in a ceramics class. I understand the need for students to use the tools and technology available to them, but I also feel that technology does not belong in an art form that has been around much longer.
Today I am making glazes. I have made several over the course of this year. My favorites so far have been blue dream, pale honey for the honeys, and several scraps. This is nick polito modeling for my glazes. He looks like George clooney.
Today I am outside poolside chilling with the raku kiln. In a few minutes ms. he is going to be outside to hold the garbage can fill of newspaper open so I can dump the red hot pots in the kiln into it.

Today I chipped shelves and painted them with kiln wash, glazed a friends project, emptied the glaze kiln, and now I am reloading it. Woah. Busy day
Woah how neat is that? This is my failed tea pot project that has now been glazed. It's glazed this way cause that's just how it is. Neat.
This is the beginning of my teapot. It is too dry to add the spout and handle though so I am going to put it into a bag with wet clay to loosen it up.
This is the smallest and final part of my set of three, and sadly it cannot be fired yet because of the school fire. However, once it is fired, it will be glazed on top like the others.
This is the basis for my multi-wheel teapot project pre-footing. It is too tall, and the lid does not for properly, but that's just how she goes. It was a good first attempt in my opinion and I will blog the finished product soon.
Just finished throwing the last of my set of three. This is the smallest of the three as well. I am glad this project is finished.
This is the hole I dug today. I don't know why Ms. Heideman made me dig a hole, but she did. She says it builds character.
