Dental Details

A visit to the dentist again today and a new packing of the the old dry sockets! Oh a lovely way to start a pottery day. Then some packing and shipping of some pots for an exhibit at my alma mater, the U of T in Knoxville, with my friends, Ted Saupe, Sun Koo Yuh, Adelaide Paul, and Andy Nasisse! The show is entitled "Beyond Surface: Ceramics!!!" (my emphasis) I like the way that sounds. After all, you can't judge a book by it's cover!

After the packing of sockets and the packing of pots, I got around to slipping a bunch of plates. As has been my recent habit to play around as a slipware potter for a few plates, here are some highlights. I plan to paint some imagery in the centers with either wax or underglaze.



False Start

A week ago, Monday, what a day I had getting clay mixed, cutting wood, throwing pots! The kids were back in school! Everything was looking up for some big pottery fun!

[Tuesday: screeeeeeeech! ]

Stacey had scheduled me, innocently enough, for oral surgery to have my wisdom teeth pulled, well, the three that were left. I had been putting it off for years, and thought, that I'd better do it. Little did I know the week that I would have! I'll spare you the details and leave them for the DVD special features, whenever that comes out...just conjure an image of me in a anti biotic/pain killer induced zombified state. [number 9]

Now it's back to school for me after a month of I don't know what!? To be fair, in review (so I don't start feeling guilty or sorry for myelf) [number 9]grading pots for Etsy kiln opening, a week at the beach, photography with Joy and photoshopping 100 images, setting up Etsy, packing and shipping, cleaning up packing peanuts from the drive, cleaning and prepping shop for upcoming mega-session.

OK enough! It's up the hill I go for my 300' commute. Maybe even my first cup of Joe in a week!
I'll let you know how it goes, thanks for being there!

you are still there, aren't you?
