good morning. not sure what i'm doing that is causing the double posts. oh well--must have hit the enter key twice or something.
day out with dearest friends today. not sure where we are going, but I know we are on the hunt for a weeping spruce. looking forward to catching up with these special gals.
car pickup is set for Saturday. rob is very excited about it. I hope it all comes off without a hitch.
did some more glazing yesterday--I had a group of pots that I needed to do some detail work on--they are a satin glaze--soft and buttery to the touch--inside they are a nice mid-tone yellow, outside a bright light green. then I take a "designer liner" which is a bottle with a fine tip and colored slip in it--and draw leaves on the outside. took several hours because I had to let it dry in stages to avoid smearing the black. then I started on the next set which will involve three different glazes--interior glaze is first. a deep dark red. got that pretty much completed. I am so pleased with how my new routine is working out. for the first time I am really enjoying glazing--being more organized has helped me uncover the meditative aspect of doing it. and before much longer I will have both of my little plastic greenhouses full of pieces awaiting their turn in the kiln!
total gym today, then a quick turn at the park for ralphie and shambles before I head out with my GF's.
have a great day!
