  I'm so excited about everything in this firing! Even though, heh, there are only three things out of it that I can put up for sale right now -- the rest are either custom orders, not ready yet, or gifts. Out of this firing I've listed the owl bowls, the black ashtray, and the small round vase.

I needed to do a bisque firing off-schedule, because I just have so much greenware right now! It's easier to stack bisque than it is to stack greenware (one day I'll have to do a video on exactly how fragile greenware is) so I decided to clean like a madwoman and get a firing done.  A few custom orders, a few new things, and some restocks. Now, please excuse me... I seem to have a lot of bisque to glaze!

 Yesterday was primarily a comedy of errors, but I did get two things accomplished that I'm happy with -- I sent out September's sock club package in the mail, and I fired the kiln! Lots of special orders and some restocks, for the most part. A word about those yarn mugs -- it breaks my heart to say this but this is the nature of what I do: the mold that I use to pour those mugs is getting to the point where it's no longer pourable. Plaster molds really only have a life of perhaps a couple of hundred...

 I almost hesitate to even post this, since the majority of this week's firing is either a custom order or something that still needs one more step (like the baby mermaids) and won't be ready for another few days. Almost hesitate. But I'll still post it.  Like I said, the baby mermaids still have a step to go, but hopefully I should have those up Monday. The neatly wrapped yarn mugs will be available in October, when I have at least two of each, and one each of the matching sugar bowls. And with one more successful glaze firings, I'll...
