Here are some stills from the blur that the past week has been.

If I am ever in doubt about where to start I warm up with various sized mugs.

Jugs. I always stack the top of my bag wall with jugs or some other tall items.

I’ll be throwing for the next few days and then turning my attention to glazing and firing.

I trimmed the last batch of pots and made a few little fillers which are all the small things that go in the nooks and crannies where nothing else will fit. I got them all in the bisque firing that I lit this morning. I made cone packs and started getting things ready for glazing and loading when the bisque is out on Monday. Not a bad way to spend my birthday. lee and I will go to a German barn dance this evening, lots of brats and such.
