Alas drying the " hot tub " too fast it cracked, so this one is out for the show. Hope to still have 3 to 4 bowls for the show. If Grog need folding tables for display let me know, can probably borrow them from work.

Sorry to hear about the hot tub, Cass. Slap some paper clay in them cracks and stick it in the kiln! The stuff works miracles.

Yes, bring folding tables if you can. We'll use 'em if we need 'em. GROG going to bring some lazy Susans for some bigger bowls so people don't have to handle 'em to see the the whole bowl.

The velvet's lovely, dark, and deep,
But Kinny's got promises to keep,
And miles to go before he sleeps,
And miles to go before he sleeps.

Been a glazing storm this weekend. One more bowl to finish glazing, and the kiln will be full. GROG fire tomorrow with fingers crossed.

Opened the kiln this morning and this what GROG found:

These bowls turned out well. The one on the far right is either the first or second Moai bowl GROG
made years ago. It had some glaze issues, so GROG has tried to touch it up a few times, and GROG think
this time it is done.


The Bob Bowl turned out well. It has one small chip that needs to be retouched and fired, but otherwise turned out well enough.


The two bowls on the left are too light and need to be sprayed with a couple of more coats of glaze.
The greenish one in the back sucks, first time GROG has used that color and it didn't work for this
bowl. GROG will glaze over top and try to fix. The grey one is pretty good, but could use a few more
coats on the bowl part to darken it up. The one one the front right done in a dippping glaze that sucked.
Might try to dybrush on it to try and salvage it.


The salt and pecker shakers are too light and could use a couple more coats of glaze sprayed on them.


The shot on left is that dipping glaze that sucked. The middle grey guy is fine, the guy on the right could
use another coat or two to darken him up.


Oops! Forgot this guy. He was left over from the Tiki Wonderland show. He had some light glaze areas and leaked.
Now its's darker and doesn't leak.


So more glaze touch ups today and then back into the kiln.
