Well my kiln has been on the fritz and I feel like someone has tied my hands. I have orders from Etsy that I haven't been able to fill. My brother and I replaced the elements on Friday morn, but that wasn't the problem. So into the car trunk the kiln goes, and there is a very nice man at Orton that is going to help me tomorrow morning. I also had some greenware fired at Adobi ceramics, where another nice man said he would put my pots of pendants into the kiln at no charge.
I have 4 hollow bead forms in the batch that I plan on using to create a set of seasonal beads for the Bead and Button competition. They are allowing ceramics this year after excluding us last year, so I am going to take advantage of that and enter.
