Fini

In the last post you can see the pre-fired pieces, here they are after the glaze firing. Whale, Elephant and Crow.  Three out of four, for some reason Swan did not make it, . I've been having trouble with this clay batch. The trouble is cooling cracks. I am very disappointed because Swan was my favorite and I spend hours on these pieces! Not good. I am switching clay asap.

Crook's Corner show is up and ready

Yesterday our show was installed at Crook's Corner. It was so nice having someone else do it! I think they did a great job. If my memory is right this will be my 30 year anniversary of my first show at Crook's.

Frisky Rabbit

Rabbit and Tulips, 12" diam. Cathy Kiffney
There is just a hint of fall in the air, cool and crisp this morning.
I've been having trouble with my clay body and those pieces I started about a month ago had some techical problems. :(
The doily pieces came out of the kiln with a few surprises. CRACKS! Thankfully three from the series worked, here is one of them.
