It has been a rainy and overcast week here which started on Monday with me firing a large group of bisque. With all this wind and rain it has been hard keeping motivated to start the glazing process though the temperatures are a bit cooler making it easier to work. I started out by making up several glazes to top off my buckets and set about prep glazing and waxing off feet, jar mouths and misc., by Thursday, I had everything glazed up and ready to load in the kiln. Loading ended up being a bear as it was an exceptionally tight fit in the bisque and now glazed, just as tight. I had taken a photo of the bisque kiln prior to unloading and that helped piece the puzzle back together and get everything that came out, back in again. Now that all that is out of the way, of course the weather changes with beautiful blue skies and a cool breeze moving in as I am firing the kiln. The firing should be done by this early evening and hopefully by Saturday late afternoon, after waiting somewhat patiently, I should know how things went. I simply have no patience for patience.

In the meantime, here is some WIND & RAIN from one of my favorite Shakespeare film adaptations, TWELFTH NIGHT;
