Yep. I am back in the middle of nowhere for the summer, but the heat hasn’t really hit here yet. The craziness of finals passed 2 weeks ago today. Everything went fine, my final critique, my salt and gas firings, my final presentation for glaze calculation, and the sale. I guess that’s an understatement… the sale went really well for me. As far as sales stats go, I placed second. I didn’t expect to beat the grad student that won 🙂 she always makes a killing, and for good reason. She made over twice as much as I did.
Anyway, enough about the sale… it’s summer now, and I am going out of my mind trying to find things to do to keep me busily entertained. I did make an outdoor home studio setup where I am able to wear a bikini while I work 😉 so I got a nice tan the other day. No, I don’t have a photo 😀 I just made a few hand built tea bowls and started a hard slab project. The hard part will be transporting it back to the studio to be fired. I decided to keep working with my red clay (mostly by default because it happened to travel with me in the back seat of my car). All of the tea bowls that I made with red clay and carved trees into sold out at the sale:
Anyway, I did make other tree cups and tea bowls with salt firing clay, but I have a few left from the sale. I only have the red clay one because I didn’t put it out to sell 🙂 Here is an example of the salt fired ones:
I should get going to work 🙂 more later
