getting a handle on the handle thing
I was pregnant and didn't entirely fit behind my wheel. everything I had fired in a bisque load exploded or was otherwise ruined. my daughter was born via c-section and I had massive activity restrictions. (she was so totally worth it) I had another equally successful bisque fire. I got a pyrometer and new cones-- and it made a difference!
and then I got a batch of deflocculated clay. seriously?
so really I haven't been very serious in my studio until about a week ago.
several people have asked why I don't make mugs. we get so many promotional mugs that I generally just considered them annoying. then I made a few and people got excited.
so I'm making mugs now. as many as I can. hopefully I'll have some good ones for Eastern Market when I go back on April 15. you can also provide cash money in exchange for a mug via my website, thedelicion.com.
three other things:
1. you cannot add water to slip.
2 my sock yarn blanket is currently four by six feet big.
3. Lucia and Palmer are very good friends.
