I am a winner!! No, really! I am. Marcia Tani Paul writer of the great pottery blog: Maashaclay http://maashaclay.wordpress.com/2012/07/03/a-quick-summer-soup-and-a-winner/ has a pottery giveaway every so often, and you know...if you want to win, you have to play!! So as her rules state, "to enter you must leave a comment. " Comment I did. This month she gave away this lovely vase (currently full of locally grown sunflowers from the Farmers Market in Kittanning.) made by Jan Bilek. What a sweet addition to my collection! Thanks again, Marcia!!
Round 2 excitement: An "old" kiln I inherited (read "free") is now happily firing away on it's new slab home! Size doesn't translate well in the picture, but it's big!! Actually, my old kiln could fit inside with room to move. Ceramic Supply of Pittsburgh is setting me up with a controller for hassel free firing. I'll be unloading the inaugural firing this evening and reloading. Can't wait to hit the glaze bottles and brushes!
