Coffee with a side of WordPress…

…another side of Sunday morning paper and ads, kid drama and more coffee…  lol

A good Sunday morning to you!

We unloaded our first mid-fire glaze batch earlier this week, and I have to say I’m quite tickled with the results. We tested 3 glazes, a matte white, a satin black and a floating blue, the later of the two were both from John Britt’s book, The Complete Guide to Mid-Range Glazes.

The idea to order clay from here stemmed from looking for a black clay body that had low toxicity. Their Black Raven fit the bill and I can’t wait to start using it!

With the variety of items we’ve been testing, the question of ‘what’s for sale’ has been coming up more recently. Unfortunately, we are not quite ready for sales of items and I wish we were! I am still testing glazes and the clay bodies while working about 30 hours a week at the job-job and being a mom and a partner to the best guy ever. ❤

That being said… I am hoping to have a few items available to sell by the end of October.

Thank you for hanging out! Here’s a few pics of our other fun glazed items…
