Last week I did some work getting ready for the firing Ryan is doing today, mostly cleaning the dust off the pieces (they've been sitting on the shelf for a while), putting underglaze in my signatures, and waxing them. I also painted the little test cup you can see at the bottom, to see how the black underglaze looks under a couple of Ryans glazes.
All my stuff glazed, and a couple of ethans pieces in the back. All I'm using this time is a blue glaze and Ryan's green/orange/black. All of these pieces are wadded and ready to salt-fire!
Ethan spent around three hours painting his little pot with underglazes :P He is as anal as me sometimes...
Lastly, a dog of course. My family went fishing on the bay in MA, and there was a boat dog! Half wolf and half german shepard, 'pal' was a super sweet and beautiful dog.
