Of interest this week...I got into the Galburg Gallery show! I entered a pair of nestling pitchers and a goblet that was carved out to look like a tree, but the eggplant was the one to make the cut. I didn't realize how selective of a show it is. I didn't look at the list in its entirety (too excited ;) but I don't think there were more than fifteen or twenty pieces. That's fantastic though, because there are cash prizes and that drastically increases my chances of gettin me a hundred smackaroos. Also it would be very nice to have another ribbon on my resume.

This past week we packed and fired our saggars. I did two pieces, a sauceish sized bowl that had been altered and an asian-looking lidded container. I used a pipe cleaner soaked in soda ash to wrap around the small bowl. I wadded it upside down to the bottom, and then also wadded the foot ring. I packed the bottom half with pine cones. then I set my container on the wadded foot ring, and covered it in the wheatish part of prairie grasses that had been soaked in an unwashed ash paste. I glazed the inside of the container with the celedon/matte green combination hoping for that oh-so-luscious red. We unpack them tomorrow!!!!!!!

I've been having more weird dreams, last night Melissa aquired a kitten that pooped on her bed. She was younger than I was and had a panic attack about it, so I sent her off to stay with her friend for a couple days while the potty trained? While the problem was taken care of, however it was done.

  2. getting a new job is more exciting
