HOT HOT HOT


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.

We have a small reprieve here with the heat, it's overcast and threatening rain. I like the background color of your blog, the gray goes well with your vibrant red glaze, which is beautiful. Congrats on the honorable mention on your wonderful coffee pot.
