Shameless self promotion.

In the interest of clearing way for more work coming out of the kilns I have been adding more sale items to my Etsy store.  Just wanted to let y'all know in case you were already working on Holiday gift shopping. 

Oh, and I can't wait to see what comes out of the kiln tomorrow.  I did some photo litho transfers onto some tumblers and bowls.  I also did shellac resist on others.  These are all Coleman porcelain with some celadon glazes and some micro-crystallines.  Plus the experiments that I couldn't help myself with.  I LOVE glazing!  Did I say, I love glazing.  Yeah, well go check out my shop then get a good nights sleep.  Wait!  What am I talking about?  It's already tomorrow here in Cali. Oh, well.  Night all.

Laser Toner Decals

It is 12:30 am and I'm up late working on some laser toner decals that I am going to print out tomorrow.  Just remembered I've got to be to class by 8 am.  Yikes!  Zzzzzz....

I'm still here, really!

Ummm, how does a whole month go by before I realize I haven't posted in a really long time. Oh yeah.  School started.  Well, I can at least try to blame it on something.  I really have been busily working away at stuff, just not remembering to take my camera to school with me.

I got up early and headed of to school today to do some plaster mold making.  This was the piece I had been working on down in Fresno.  After the semester started, I tried to make another drop out mold and I must have undercut the sides after I got it stuck in the last mold and had to rework it.  So I decided to go ahead and practice 5 part mold making.  I know, ambitious aren't I?

What I thought was only going to take a few hours took me all day, literally.  I went in at 8 and didn't leave until 7.  I still have to go back and clean up my mess.  Plaster everywhere, but a girl's gotta take a break sometime.

I have lots more pics of the molds.  That's right.  I made not one, but two.  And the last bit of number two is waiting for me to go finish it.  Oh yeah, and clean.  Ugh.  I better go before I completely collapse.  Have a great remainder of the weekend!
