Great news…I picked up the raw materials I ordered yesterday! After work, I headed on up to Portland, Maine to pick up my order. It was a beautiful drive and I listened to Mumford & Sons on the way up and Hillsong on the way back. It was a nice little trip and I came back eager to begin mixing glazes. First off I am going to throw pedestals needed for my pots as well as test tiles for my glazes. Once I mix them I am going to run a test glaze fire. This will allow me to see what my results will be in my kiln and show me if I need to work out any gliches in the glazes before I really fill the kiln for a complete glaze firing. Exciting! I have the next two days off of work, so I am hoping to make them productive days in the studio!
