Sulphur Bluff, Texas, USA


The Bear

Well, the firing went off last night about 9pm and I am hoping for good results! The pots from all the effort, concentration, and wanderlust that went into the kiln hinge on the final firing. It seems to me that a lot of people who work with clay like to have complete control of every aspect of what they make. I am no exception. However, when you fire, a kiln unfailingly takes on a personality of its own.

Unloading a kiln is similar to meeting a new and interesting person. There is a sense of familiarity, intrigue, and newness. Best analogy I've got for today.

Most importantly, this weekend is The Marshall Handmade Market! Come, chat, visit, and buy some of my wares, books, drawings, and other things.
