Some good instruction in making cuttle boards in this clip from Ceramic Arts Daily.
I've been spending the morning ordering long life incandescent light bulbs on line. I figure that 20,000 hour life span is a good investment, particularly since they're edging out these incandescent bulbs. Our daughter, who lives in Germany, which switched to the new bulbs last year says that those new bulbs which were supposed to last longer, are not even lasting half as long as the old incandescent bulbs, so I took her good advice and got us a good supply and even got free shipping.
Since we're in something of a drought situation here in Southern Oregon, and our automatic drip system is turned off, I spent some time hand watering some of my container plants - one bucket at a time. Between these unusual below freezing temperatures we've had and the drought, I have a feeling that we may be losing some perennials. Everything is looking pretty stressed. Two of my roses look like they have gone to the garden in the sky; but spring will reveal all.
I'll get a full afternoon in the studio thanks to our Bayou chicken pot pie dinner leftovers. My plan is to weigh out a small bucket of amber glaze, and a small batch of a light green slip. I liked several of the light greens slips I tested, but am finally settling on one with 5% Mason celadon green stain, to play with for a while. Since I'm still not sure how long I'll stick with this earthenware, I'm not making five gallon batches of slip. Three gallons will be enough to dip small things and I can pour or brush it on other pieces.
