My kiln opening was less than spectacular. I managed to get a few good things, so I am satisfied. This is a small "butter dish" I made a long time ago. I fired it multiple times trying to get the right effect, I don't have it anymore, I wish I hadn't sold it.

Today we are having a typical Bay Area coastal day, dreary. I am trying to get out to my workspace to make some things but find it difficult this morning...

What do you do when you say something so crazy on someone's blog that you just shut down the computer and scream? Well, it's done, can't be taken back so I think I will smile and pretend like it's all okay. I'm the only one that pays attention anyway. You know, like we all think that it's all about us? Oh, well....

I bought some plants yesterday to cover the bare spots in my yard that I don't like. I visited a new nursery and the nice woman actually helped me find something that I don't have to water once it is established and it isn't invasive and it grows to cover up bare spots just fine. I actually went there with a big used black plastic bag looking for sawdust (it is a lumberyard that is branching out - don't you like puns?) but they didn't have any. Do you suppose some other mad potter beat me to it? I need an old metal garbage can too, one with a few holes in it so I can do a sawdust firing; I may have to purchase a new one and poke holes in it, seems so wasteful....

Dreary days are the best. Rain is even better.

What did you say on that blog?!??!?!

Yes, I would prefer rain.

Nothing bad, I mentioned Freddy Mercury and; "Scaramouch, scaramouch, can you do the fandango? Thunderbolts and lightening, very, very frightening. Galileo, Galileo, Figaro." The usual insanity, I was having a manic moment....
