Wendy, thanks for the continued support, makes me smile to read what you write. It's the first time I've had a crack in a bisque fired piece. It's pretty small, I think it will be hidden by glaze, if not, it might look kind of cool (and perhaps intentional???)
The push-out was an experiment, I was gifted that thrown cylinder, and it was a whole lot wetter (less dry?) than the slabs I'm usually working with, so it was fun to mess with the clay. I'm trying to convince a super talented young guy at the studio to learn about tiki. At first he was completely confused by my stuff, now he's asking questions about it. Heh heh heh.
Jon, thanks! By the time Oasis rolls around I'll have a pile of mugs and I'll walk around like Santa w/ mugs for all of my (TC) friends!
