Special Orders

Sunday, December 02, 2012

Mornings are my best time to work on my ceramics. So of course my work days are out of the question. Then Saturday I was also out and about. However, I got another order - wanted in time for Christmas of course. I usually tell people who ask for special orders to try to let me know by Thanksgiving - which is when I try to MAKE the pieces, and then try to get them painted up. Well, I had everyone else's orders MADE. So I decided to make this one dog last night, and quick-dry it in the oven so I could fire it with the other things. Then this morning after coloring my hair (another paint job, HA!) and doing other stuff, I sat myself down to work on the special orders, as well as some stock pieces, just in case there was room in the kiln. I ended up staying home from church, something I don't like to do, but I had to get these things done. I am grateful for being able to listen to sermons online!

It's sedentary work. So I used the online timer every 30-35 minutes to make sure I got up and moved around. That and drinking cups of water, till I felt cold then switched over to hot tea (no sugar). Made sure I went upstairs to the bathroom!

So, the special orders are in the kiln. Now I can catch up on my sparking.

    Ceramics are a nice hobby. Many years ago I had a ceramic shop where I taught, painted and sold finished wares. My husband used to pour and fire the greenware, Id truly miss painting but have fond memories.
