Look Up

The calendar says it is October but summer is still here! Temperatures in the 90's. Shadows growing longer. Warm breeze. Dragon flies dart about. My eyes and soul can not get enough of the these clear blue skies and white puffy clouds. And falling to sleep to the sound of crickets and katydids in October... Continue Reading →

Shooting The Moon

I learned a lot about shooting the moon. The Harvest Moon illuminated night sky the weekend of September 13, 2019. So, I grabbed my camera and tripod. The sky was not 100% clear on Friday night but thought the clouds added drama.   I was disappointed, however,  to see that my photographs were not as... Continue Reading →

UPDATE

While technology continues not to be my friend, I continue to shoot and throw things! The good news is that the company we sent our external hard drive too expects to be able to retrieve our data with 78% certainty in which my photos are HIGH priority, 78% doesn't sound too optimistic but I am...

Technical Difficulties

Okay, so this happened. My computer decided to "reformat" my external hard drive. I don't even know what that means except I can no longer access my files on the external hard drive that stores all of my photos! Did you get that? ALL. OF. MY. PHOTOS. Trapped in my external hard drive!!!! Oh, I've... Continue Reading →

Wordless Rainy Thursday

Aside from taking pictures of my rainy day, I did load the kiln to fire tomorrow. A glaze firing! I am  looking forward to Sunday when... Continue Reading →

Enough Rain

At last, the sun shines today! The forecast, however, is calling for MORE RAIN over the next 10 days! Sigh. I'm growing tired of grey days and rain.    

A View From My Back Porch

I usually don't complain about the weather unless it is cold. I do not like being cold. If it is below 70 degrees, that's it.  I'm complaining. This spring, however, I find myself complaining about the lack of sun light. Over the winter, I yearned for bright spring sunny days but so far we have... Continue Reading →

News! Not Breaking but News . . .

After much thought, reading, note-taking and collaboration with fellow potters, I think I have discovered the reason why I have had pin holes. #1:  The glazes were too thick. So early spring, I adjusted my glazes. The result was perfect on two of the three clay bodies. #2: It is a particular clay-body.   After talking... Continue Reading →

A Note To Myself

I'm a list maker and note taker. I make lists of things "To Do" otherwise things will not get done such as exercise, make doctor's appointment, and laundry. I also make "To Do" lists for pottery such as prepare test tiles, reclaim clay, make handles and buy more clay. I make lists for items I need... Continue Reading →
