It is Friday night, the wife is out of town...what to do? Well, if you are a potter with a bisque kiln firing and a child sleeping in the other room, you sit around drinking hard cider and watching Louis Black. This guy is freaking hilarious. He is mostly a political satirist and as far as I can tell he is spot on. Great stuff.
This past Tuesday I once again attempted a continuing education class at the local community college. It fekin' sucked. I had three people pre-register and only two people actually showed up for class. That is exactly nine people shy of a full class. It is extremely disheartening to have a class canceled. As previously stated, it fekin' sucks.
On a lighter note, the bisque kiln is chugging away. I am really happy with a lot of the stuff that I have in there this go around. I am anxious to get it glazed and finished up. I am going to go ahead and use the regular clear glaze that I have been using on this load, I think. I am, however, planning on testing a few different clear and satin glazes. I would really like to go in the satin direction if I can find something that works. I don't know that I really like the super glossy finish that I have now. The satin finish (I am hoping, anyway) seems more natural; softer, not as harsh. We will see. Until then.
