I had a get back to the studio day wednesday, public holidays are great for goal hitting and great incentives for focus time...
after 2 days of softening the remnants of the last pugging day i finally gave in and unbolted the end of my pugmill only to find that if i left it another day or 2 the moisture would have got though the last 10cm or so!! grr oh well took me half a day i did some cleaning and finally got it all back together..
and just enough time to get some throwing in after pugging a box of recycled.... so theres it time to get cranking i have a slipware kiln to finish filling then we'll fire big momma and hopefully get some nice results in the gas kiln..
my kiln is all wired up but she has a problem the thermostat doesn't work so its all or nothing!!! could make for some very quick firings, so i think we'll try to fix that first, what do ya reckon :)) and maybe a thin layer of fibre inside the lid to stop brick bits falling through to. So exciting i can't wait to get into production mode with my own kiln..
so there ya have it I'm ready to roll tomorrow, the weather should be fine so a nice throwing day for terracotta, i think i'll aim to fill those shelves!!!
