Japan - some pots from Karatsu
Here are a couple of pictures of pottery from Karatusu. The fish bottles were freshly decorated, unfired.
Yesterday I got the rest of the kiln shelves cleaned and stored, took down the bag wall, cleaned out the kiln, set up the new "T" brick formation in front of each burner, which will be in lieu of a normal bag wall, got the rest of the kiln furniture cleaned and stored, re-swept the kiln room, cleaned one wheel, drilled a bunch of bats and swept part of the studio.
Jim is taking my osteo appointment this afternoon, since his pulled back seems to have gotten worse in two weeks. While we're out I need to stop and get a bunch of paper napkins, plates, etc. for the Clay Club meeting at my studio next week. Hopefully we'll get back in time for me to get an hour or so in the studio before dinner. I still have a wheel to clean and some clay scraps and reclaim to deal with and lots of little things to tidy up.
It's leftover beans and cornbread tonight, which will be a perfect light supper after a big lunch at the Japanese restaurant.
