Whatever Wednesday

I have decided that the time has some to sort my glazes.  These are glaze tests from various glazes I have hanging around my studio.  

All five are handbuilt with terra cotta and hold anywhere from three to four and a half ounces.

I used the same basic design and colors on all of them so I could compare how each glaze takes the color.


I have organized things with a mark for each glaze on the bottom with the same mark on the glaze bucket.  No more random bits of notes to be misplaced.  I will probably make a folded for reference on my IPad too.

Unfortunately it's going to a month before I fire.  I'm working in between cleaning the back  that used to be my glaze area.  Too much out of sight  out of mind back there!

After a frost scare I brought many plants inside and grouped the others on the deck where I could cover them easily.  We were fortunate not to get frost, but other nearby areas did, so it was worth the effort.

Meanwhile We have returned to true Indian Summer with temps in the high seventies.  The outside plants are thriving.  My toes are crossed for many long golden days.

We started feeding the birds and they are eating every seed in sight.  It's odd because last year we hardly had any birds at all.

Enjoy the day!  

As always, thanks for stoping by...............*s*

    1. Hi Sandy....Thanks. We are enjoying one of our long warm falls. Not much color this year due to drought and caterpillar devastation. We have had just a little frost in patches; my dahlias are still blooming! No complaints here!
