More experimentation ...

My students are crying "Sir, our clay is drying out before we can finish!". I told them they take several class periods to do something which should take one. "You need to work faster!"
They bet me I couldn't work faster than them...






Wedged, cut, and assembled in about 25 minutes...teaching as I worked. Nice sized slab bottle sitting on a nine inch square plate. Next class period I'll smooth it out and decorate.

Location:Sumay Memorial St,Santa Rita,Guam

Experimenting...

Just did a demo for my students on how slabs could be used to make a variety of things... like this condiment tray with salt and pepper shakers!

Finally!!!

The PO for my kiln is in the hands of the vendor!! He says my new Skutt 1227-3 kiln should be in my possession in the next 4-6 weeks!! The half ton of clay, 15 gallons of glazes, and various gloves, tongs, and tools should arrive within 2 weeks as well! Is this a GREAT Christmas or what?!?! Woooo Hooooo!!!
