For the first time in 23 years ...

I got a wheel last month, and have to admit that I cannot wait to get on it. I have been watching a lot of youtube videos the last couple of weeks, know what I want to make and I need to reward myself with some playtime at the studio after a hectic few weeks.
(I might even try the spoonrests too :-)

Instead of playing on the wheel today, I got busy on my plaster wheel, and started to turn a tall jug/pitcher. A client has been begging for one since Jan! And a gallery just e-mailled me with another order, that they want a.s.a.p.
But the good news is that I fired the new 15 cf kiln, and everything looked good. It is full of cones, but as it is only a bisque kiln, it might not fire correctly at glaze. It was awesome to get 8 large salad bowls into it, 8 nesting bowl sets, 4 teapots and a host of bowls, tumblers and milk tumblers (about 70% of a large order in one go!). I would have been lucky to fit 3 of them into my 4.5 cf kiln :-)

I hope the kiln gods will have mercy
And about the contest- yes that sounds just like my plans ... but one new design in two months is ok too
much better then none

I think the time I wanted to use to start practising on the wheel throwing has been cancelled/moved forward for now, ugh.
