goldilocks is at it again...
well that was a crazy wkd!! saturday started early for those who made it down to the club for start up pf K9 at 7am....huh hemmm...urr i got a little lost trying to find stuff in my studio after the big tidy up so it was well later when i got there and the raku kilns had been firing up already and breakfast all cooked..
K9 finished the firing by 3.30pm a well slow fire just to make sure those large pieces were fired nicely and a bout 12 firings in the 3 raku kilns it was some session!! a bit too much smoke but you get that in group and newbie situations all good and only one big crackup on the refire of a teapot, the evidence is in one of those bins in shatters...
so post firing i still had some time up my sleeve!! loading my car for market on friday night was a great idea i didn't have to do it when i was exhausted after a day of rakuing... :P
I'm off to glaze some of those mugs after a late lunch today and will finish the outsides tomorrow night and get that last cone 6 firing through a couple more tiles to come and yes i am cutting it fine to the deadline i need to get them packed this wkd it will take approx 10 working days to get them to the US and they should be there right on time for 15th september... ooh box hunting note to self!
And this monday it's a 'hung parliament'... we still don't have a clear election result.. deadlocked at 71 seats each Labor and the coalition ' Libs and Nationals' with 4 Independents and 1 Green holding all the balls at this point... either party/team needs 76 seats to govern..
well happy potting all and a busy week ahead... :))
