I feel like I hit the jackpot on the lottery! Both of my orders came in this morning - two black mugs from Gary Rith and a red one from Joy Tanner! I can't wait to do some ice tea in them. Thought I would let you enjoy them as well.
These mugs are lighter than any commercially made coffee cup I have in the cabinet!
The local ceramics professor at the University finally broke down and said he would sell me one of his wheels! It's an older model Pacifica, but he says it works fine - he just uses it for trimming. He will adjust the belts, adjust the foot pedal, and clean it all up. Now I just have to haggle with him on the price. His wife wants $300, but he said he will let it go for less... I'll see if he'll take $250. I already know he will take payments. Yeah!! FINALLY getting back on the wheel!
Now.... about a kiln...
For those of you who enjoy sunsets, we have had some nice ones lately. Just imagine setting on the beach with your feet in the warm water, feeling a tropical breeze lightly blowing your hair, and seeing this sunset unfold in front of you.
