I'm definitely in test tile overload - trimmed and marked a whole bunch yesterday and threw some more, then threw a couple of small cone 6 test pots with the Little Loafers Glory. Softening that clay made throwing it a lot easier. After centering and opening, I just threw dry and had no trouble with it.
After breakfast I need to get a half hour in the garden to do some feeding before I head to the studio. Today's studio time is going to be a repeat of yesterdays routine - finish tests tiles,throw more test tiles and a couple of pots, and trim yesterdays pots if they're ready. Yesterday I had to quit at 3:30 to get ready for company.
Today I'll be able to work till five, before I have to get ready for our Friday porch sitting with friends. Tonight's porch sitting menu: Chinese pork dumplings, pate, raw veggies with dip, Oriental nibblies,and an assortment of cheeses and fruit and wine of course.
