Happy Happy


These are a few of the goodies that came out of the kiln this afternoon. I recklessly glazed away with glazes that I have never used before. I threw caution to the wind. I am happy! There are no true stinkers in there. And fortunately I even know what these glazes are as the clearly labled test pieces are in the bottom of the kiln. BTW, I would normally test the glazes then use the good ones in the next go round of glazing. But I was open to a surprise, even a bad surprise.

Now I am off to unload a U-Haul chockers full of antiques, art supplies, and art work collected (umm hoarded?) over something like 20 years. My friend is down sizing to a condo in a move to Austin. Lovely person that she is, she is holding a silent auction to benefit the Womens Protective Services. How could I say no to such a generous gesture as this one. It's only 97F and I love to sweat. Really.

Have a great weekend!

PS LeAnn I can't find my invoice. I think it could have been part of the stuff that was dragged through the black hole with all the internet blipping. Please can you send me another??

I love them all, but I am especially partial to the starfish! That sounds like a great cause...wish I lived closer because I have a whole closet full of stuff to donate!

Just look at all of these beautiful pieces! Can't wait to see them up close. Your friend's silent auction sounds like fun...and maybe difficultthough to let go of those family treasures after so long.
