While I was loading a bisque, I enlisted the help of my two favorite studio assistants this afternoon.
I think Ben was looking for the phone I knocked into the slurry bucket.
Allison cleaned up my glaze workbench and, in the process, found my favorite mini flexible rib and a most-sought-after elephant ear sponge. I am down to my last true elephant ear sponge and am desperate to find more. Highwater Clays no longer carries them. How can I possibly throw with a synthetic sponge?
I finished putting the handles on 9 baskets this afternoon. Attaching the handles is by far the most challenging part of making these pieces.
Then I loaded a bisque, using the craziest arrangement of shelves. I posted a while ago that I don't have enough shelves and the ones I have aren't the right size. So, I stacked pieces on half-shelves and broken shelves just to fill the kiln. I am going to Highwater tomorrow to finally buy the correct shelves for this kiln. And a new phone.
