In my hurry to get items bisqued for the Kings Mountain show I rushed the drying on a teapot. It rained so much last week that things weren't drying quick enough. So I placed about 6 items out in the sun Thursday to finish drying. All the other pieces were fine, but the teapot was apparently not completely dry. I am bummed because I really wanted a teapot in that exhibition.
Today I glaze the items for Mountain Nest. This morning I already put on the wax resist, which keeps the glaze from sticking to the bottom of the pots. I have also mixed some of the twilight glaze, which I will be using tomorrow. Look for photos later this week.
Last week I won the Top Treasury Team Challenge for the week. So this week everyone makes a treasury featuring my Dragonfly Pie Plate. It is fun to see all the creative themes and items used in the treasuries. I will have a hard time choosing which one I like best. Check out the treasuries here.
