Today I'll glaze the new, bisqued slip tests and get those fired in another day or two in my tiny test kiln, and make notes on the firing about results and followups.
Yesterday turned out to be pretty productive even though I was moving slowly in the morning. In addition to getting the kiln unloaded, I spent a good amount of time organizing some raw materials. There's a lot more to do on that front; but first I need to get more storage bins and other containers to maximize that area.
Since it's Oscar night, and Jim has requested an early, fun dinner while we watch the show, I have to quit studio work around 3 o'clock to get dinner ready at 4 o'clock when the show starts. I'm just doing simple Buffalo type baked drumsticks, celery sticks and potato skins - kinda like Super Bowl foods for the occasion. Time now for a healthy oatmeal breakfast and then some kitchen time to make a blue cheese dip, and the hot sauce for the chicken.
