Works-in-Progress Wednesday (11/14/18)

Posted by A. Lorena Haldeman on

Y'all, I am having a hard time getting my engine running this morning! I just started Pot #2 of coffee... let's see how this goes. Let's see... what's going on this week? In ceramics, I'm painting more dragon mugs, I'm glazing the December mug of the month... I'm testing out a new way of glazing the tentacle mugs (think how I'm doing the dragon mugs - I'm painting one now that I can fire at the same time to see if it works like I want it to)... I'm thinking about next year and the "Mug of the Month"... In...

I've been sick the last couple of days but powering through anyway, and I woke up this morning feeling so much better... except for a migraine, ugh! That's just .... salt in the wound, ya know? But Imma not let that stop me, I have fun to have!   In ceramics, there's a lot going on. I just had a really good kiln firing with some new things in it that I'll be sprinkling into the shop over the next week. Then I've got a biiiiiiig ol' pile of bisque to start glazing things in preparation for GLAM and The...

What are y'all working on this week? What's going on in your lives? In ceramics, I'm trying to fill the kiln to fire it by Friday or Saturday. I've got the November mug of the month, some new mermaid mugs, some plant stakes... I'm also working on some more dragon mugs since y'all liked that - but here's my question on those: do you just want me to make a couple more? Or is that a mug you'd like to see become a regular item in the shop? In soap, I've made my restocks-needs list, and am getting ready to...

This week is all about catching up, getting my feet underneath me, and figuring focus! In ceramics, the October mug of the month was listed yesterday... no, Monday, haha. Monday! Cute little cauldron cups because y'all liked the shape I made for a friend a couple of months ago, but in a different color. They're so twee! I've also got a table full of bisque to be glazed, and a pile of bisque after that which just can't fit on the table but is in the queue. Lots to do in restocking and in prepping for the holiday season. I'm...

Works-in-Progress Wednesday (09/12/18)

I just posted over on Facebook that this is the most Mondayest-feeling Wednesday ever. Whooo, boy? Just me? Anyone else not feel at all like it's Wednesday? How can the week be half-over already? In ceramics, I've reached a good pre-Fiber-In stopping point with the mad rush of glazing, and now I'm in a mad rush of firings. Yesterday I fired Little Geek; the day before, Big Geek; the day before that, Little Geek. Unfortunately, Little Geek has been throwing me an error code with my mid-range fires, so that's going to take a little fiddling. (Pottery nerd alert: I'm...
