another layer....





howdy all, i have been busy but more of the same so not a lot of point in boring you with the same pics of me glazing tiles and waxing tiles although my i just burnt my finger tips again in the hot wax dance is pretty funny,.... should have set up the video!!

anyhoo a regular crowd scene clubbing today...and i did get all my cups done just not all of the teapots, and some of the plates i deco'd on our print day, the tiles are still waiting bisque fire... and the weather has been so random it's like cyclone city out there right now....
we had a power cut this afternoon so i ran out of steam in the dark with all the rain and clouds above it's a little hard to see what ya doing...!

so hopefully monday i can finish the glazing...and get a cone 6 glaze through this friday..
all steam ahead with the table tiles and i bisque to go possibly 2 glaze firings ....then comes the checking tiles and cementing to the table tops all before christmas day, i think i will vid that for future reference....like never do this again!!!!
but seriously i've learned so much from the table challenge and a big break is probably deserved...but i will consider cafe table size, more like the fishy table i did that's in the garden getting pelted with rain right now....

so hope all our american friends had a great thanksgiving wkd with families etc stuffing the turkeys and themselves.. is there a vegetarian option to that feast..? ciao for now...

  1. sure there is a vegetarian option, a soy thing called tofurkey, but me and the missus made our own pizza and cookies :)
    These cups and all are gonna look great aren't they?

  2. I make a veggie-loaf. The recipe includes a variety of grated veggies, soybeans & rice. It doesn't taste like turkey, but it is absolutely wonderful.
    Can't wait to see these cool pieces after they come out of the kiln.

  4. The glazing designs on your pots look great – looking forward to seeing them fired! I actually did have a yummy vegetarian Thanksgiving with rice pilaf, green beans with tomatoes, and roasted sweet potatoes. Are you a vegetarian?
