Over 100 degrees out today. Good thing I started early and finished before it hit 90 degrees. I threw these pieces and altered them early today, and went out tonight to put on the handles. I would have waited until morning but I didn't want them to dry to much. I haven't been able to do quite as much the last few days due to the heat in my studio. It is supposed to cool down after today, but not by much. I would have started the bisque kiln, but didn't want to warm the place even more before tomorrows work. I will probably start it after I finish tomorrow. I have the Great American Pottery Festival next weekend to get ready for and the Bele Chere Festival the following weekend in Asheville. I will need to do a few glaze loads this week to be ready. I just loaded up a batch of pottery for an exhibit at the Tyler White Gallery in Greensoboro. I will deliver them this weekend. The show is not until later in the month. I am sending so many of my nice vases that I decided to make some today. I will probably make some more tomorrow. As much as I feel that I should be starting to stock up for the fall, it seems that I am always running out of something. This week it is the lobed pitchers & medium vases.
