When it comes to hand building, I love that as I finish them, they're done. No flipping, trimming, handles, etc. It take at least an hour for each bottle, but they're pretty much done after I add the neck and top. I'm sure I'll find a way to keep fussing with them tomorrow.
A few 10lb lidded jars that will get poked and prodded tomorrow. They stand about 14" tall. I think I like the one on the right with the higher shoulder and flatter lid...any thoughts? This type of lid, with the overhanging lip, is a little foreign to me. I usually drop a galley in the rim and the lid sits down in. (Like these or these). This overhanging lid will work a little better in zones of the kiln that may get quite a lot of ash buildup.
And then there was a peacock. Chillin on top of a Circus-looking trailer. Just down from the studio on East Bench Road.

I lost one of my pitcher and melitta sets, and this one barely made it through. With some grinding it might make it into the show or onto the etsy site. Theres a big ole' soda drip near the stripes and on the handle. It looks good, though, and the melitta fits a #4 cone filter just right!
Well that's all for now! Cheers!
20 Soda Ash
30 Baking soda
I had trouble getting the mix to set.
A view of the burners blowing back. Too much gas? Not enough air? Seems like the flame was just bouncing off the bagwall?
We had a nice even firing, and naturally, we can't wait to see the results! You'll get to see them too, if you check back later this weekend!
We missed growler night tonight at Sams! Cheers!
