Getting ready for my demonstration tomorrow with VOGUE Knitting…it’s a virtual conversation about color from a potter’s point of view. Some of the color makers are the photos in the BLOG. Trust me…what you see is not always what you get. Apparently 2000 degrees Fahrenheit can have a profound effect on stuff…ya think?! The demo is tomorrow at 2:30 Pacific through VOGUE. Info on their website.
Well the rib is still painful…maybe a 6 on the 10 scale…12 when the 50+ pound puppy decides to jump up to see what’s happening up close.
But what could be worse than the crack in the rib from my fall of two weeks ago? How about a spider bite on the kneecap…swollen up, red and warm and itch…ITCH…three days of that and I’m thinking that the rib is the lesser of the problems. Two little fang marks even.
If its not one thing its another right?!
Rib, knee…how about the trench the electricians want to dig from the house to the workshop. Seriously…I thought we had two conduits running to the workshop…nope…just one and it’s got the electrical running in it. Ethernet doesn’t work well (if at all really) in the same conduit as high voltage wires. So I’m having two quotes submitted. I asked the second guy if I could expect a comma to be involved in the dollar amount and he said, “Yes.” Here I thought we could be friends.
Trench or no trench, both quotes will be for the kiln wiring also…so that is going to happen within a couple weeks. That is a good thing. The diameter of the kiln is significantly bigger and that will allow for bigger pots…sort of like the dozen or so that are sitting in the shop waiting for the kiln to be hooked up. I got a little ahead of myself and made pots I can not fire. Sadly, I could use the shelf space they are taking up.
