Drying Pots

Although we just had a wonderful period of sunny, hot and dry weather now we are having rain and humidity and no pottery is drying in the studio.  Sue has pottery from a couple of days piling up and waiting to dry, right now she has two fans going, because she wants to run a bisque fire tonight.

Sue has colanders she’s trying to dry and a group of pendants that have a horse image on them, they were ordered by the Morgan Horse Farm in Vermont.

It will be hot in the studio tomorrow with the bisque kiln going.

I saw Sue working on this interesting pinch pot.  The cat is from a mold she had made years ago, she was demonstrating her mold techniques (Sue makes all her own molds, from clay sculptures that she creates) to someone and used the cat, so she wanted to put the piece somewhere and attached it to this pot.

So the studio is a beehive of Sue activity, she is trying desperately to keep up with her pottery sales.

I’m working on construction projects here and at my Mom’s house, man the gallery when I can, do my web work and play piano.  At present.
