All Fired Up

Just say Uncle …

It's never made any sense to me to call out "Uncle" when admitting defeat.  At least not in my family ... I had two uncles when I was growing up, and both were just a few years older than me.  One was Uncle Roy, and the other was Uncle Keith.  I was...

Commiting hari kari …

Arrgghhh!  Made three big beautiful platters -- and I mean BIG!  They were all trimmed, almost dried, and I applied slip to the middle (was going to paint trees around the rim).  The two largest cracked.  I thought the first one cracked because of...

Don’t go away …

I'm sure you've heard that before.  "Don't go away, I'll be right back."  It's kind of what I should have said a month ago!  I have been away -- first to the daughter's wedding, then with a minor hit of pneumonia, and then with my mum with her stuff --...

Holy Crap, Batman …

Yup, that's how I feel.  Like crap -- not psychically, or emotionally -- the kind of crappiness that comes from a full-blown summer cold -- or whateve this is.  Eyes hurt, throat hurts, monster headache, etc., etc.  Had some toast and am drinking all of...

Can’t hurry love …

That's what we're told.  Actually, it's love and pottery.  I've got eight monster faerie houses drying and because there's so many darn attachments on them, they can't be hurried.  They are taking up all of my usable space in the studio.  They need...

Invasion!

We've had an invasion as you can see! They are everywhere on the back lawn by the firing shed, and I mean EVERYWHERE!  The question is, are faeries far behind?  Strange question you ask?  Not at all!  Because I've just started a process of making...

Yes, Virginia …

That's right.  There is a Santa Claus.  Or, at least, that's the way it seems when the kiln gets opened and things look GOOD!   Had a dream last night.  Probably a dream that many potters have -- things had exploded in the kiln and there were...
