Just a quick update to show some new items in the clay studio.
I came home one day last week and my neighbor across the street had a pile of stuff with a sign that said “FREE” in big letters. The thing that caught my eye was this beautiful used white shelf. I went over and talked to him for a little while and then carried the shelf across the street and down to my lair before my wife got home. For some reason my wife gets really excited when she gets groceries for free or almost free with her stacks of coupons but then rolls her eyes when I find something for free…
I wiped the shelf down with some water and a sponge and tucked it back by the sink. I loaded it up with a bunch of glazes and other supplies that I don’t use very often. It’s amazing how much room it freed up on my other shelves next to the glaze table. This extra space will be nice when I mix glazes and glaze pots.
I also ordered some new stamps recently. Â Actually one big 4×4″ stamp that I cut into smaller stamps after it arrived. One of the stamps is for a custom order and I got some other stamps that are just for fun or have potential for other projects. I’ve got a nice collection of company and school logos but most of these stamps aren’t limited to one specific project.
As I’m writing this, the kiln is bisque firing at almost 1500F. Soon there will be some glazing to do!
