So, you know how I was happy about all the wonderful stuff that came out of the last glaze firing? I paid for it today. It seemed that each one of my pieces in this particular firing was sadder than the next.

My cookie jar with the awesome lid had pinholes all through the cappuccino glaze. My "Age is inevitable Maturity optional" bowl slumped on one side. The tiny bluebird salt cellar came out fine -- but it's a tiny bluebird salt cellar!

Made three chamsas today. They have too many fingers, but I don't care! They look nice, so I'll sell them as "a contemporary interpretation" of traditional chamsas. Besides, 6 fingers are better than 5!

I think most of the excitement of pottery is not quite knowing what you will end up with until you finally open the kiln... I guess sometimes you get happy surprises and sometimes not so happy.

Your work is amazing, by the way!
