Laura and I found a great deal of a little, old pug mill. For the fine price we dragged her to Laura's and instantly got to work pugging 96 pounds of our free clay from craigslist. Easy peasy and fun. We will be sharing Pandora the pug and will enjoy the prizes of reconstituted clay for many pottery years to come.
Our winter Fraser Valley Potters Guild had yet another successful Raku firing. The weather stayed off just long enough. See you at my winter sale where I will have some of the Raku starfish, bells. and pumpkins that turned out so beautifully.
I join the amazing event at the school and shared my skills in pottery with the school for their 1rst Community Day. I did three hours of pottery while the kids observed and asked many questions, as they also told me what to make. Although I could not make a whale or a monster on the wheel, I was successful and making many mugs, pitchers and flower bowls. Amongst my most interesting was the request in all three sessions to make wine glass, chalice and goblets. The first one was great, the second one was good and the third was a flop. I may have found a business partner, the boy that was working out unit costs in his head, some great idea givers and many new fans. What a fun day!!!!
Best question of the day, "Why is your hair white? Because I don't color it. Kids are so cute!!!!!!
