my arch nemisis pt deux


here he is again....

after scaring the crip outta me on saturday! he had appeared mid studio hiding behind a cupboard door that was open.. I of course yelled and he scarpered, at which point I notice he's been in the wars.. the end of his tail is missing and amazingly two days later it has almost healed over and now has a ridiculous looking stub tail. Anyhoo this is his morning spot corner of the studio.



This wkd was some garden work and as a result rather sore today. As the rain water tanks were getting low it is prime opportune time to move them all together which involved emptying the end tank into the green tank.. moving the end tank about a meter and moving the water back from the green tank. It's inpromptu stand is made from a bunch of old pavers, the replumbing and levelling is done all apart from the tap that broke off the green tank
 in process of the move and do you think I can find a replacement to fit!! of course not, the ebay search was random so I gonna try to source it locally, that or but a $2 tap from china in the hope it will fit. My biggest drama at the mo is rain is expected next wkd and i'd rather like to get some tanks filled.. grrr


I did have a hopeful moment that saturdays work would be done and I could get on with some print and glaze work but here they sit still.. maybe later today after work..


I was super happy with the last glaze firing and made it to cone 6 very pleasantly surprised! thank you lovely kiln :)) The new colour combos are a hit and a full range is now required to stock my favourite shop in town!

 

and more work awaiting bisque for this months show! must get in there this week and finish the throwing sessions.. It always depends on my freelance work load and last week was particularly busy and difficult, hopefully upping the vitamins will help with recovery seem to be working so far waking up with the sun :)) nice change..
