well, good morning. just got back from starting another bisque load and it's COLD here in N.H.. 2 degrees to be exact. thought i would post some shots of things in the works. these pieces have been thrown, and assembled in the case of the pig banks, and are drying. i like taking pictures of pots at this stage. something about the surface .......... they almost look like black and white images. we're doing the Boston Gift Show next month as part of a multi-participant booth sponsored by the League of N.H. Craftsmen, and we're taking the piggy banks to offer to the wholesale market. hoping they'll be a hit !! i've made so many of them i have it down and can generate cash flow with them. gotta do a little more work on the kiln. have discovered the second stage regulator that was part of the system when i acquired it isn't designed for that application and is acting as a restriction and has to be removed. i'm counting on good 'ole Home Depot to come to the rescue and thread some pipe. the kiln should fire like a rocket ship after the change and i'll have to make sure it doesn't go too fast. but i need it to fire as efficiently as possible with the price of propane being what it is.
guess i'm rambling now ....... i said i would probably talk too much.
one more thing - Michele's brother Paul built a light box for taking images and we tried it out last Fri. night for the first time. i'll be borrowing it and working with it, so will get the results posted.
