Made my first etsy sales- a friend bought some custom work so I don't know if that counts. Now to get in the studio and get the plates made.
I've created a list of about 5 different glazes I will make- I just need to get to the store and buy the materials and then borrow a drill to mix them up. I am looking forward to a glaze fire. The bisque fire went great.
The bone firing tests didn't go so well... Sarah had told me that they wouldn't but I gave it a try anyway- I just wish I didn't waste so many great bone shapes. I will figure out a good way of attaching and incorporating them without ruining the integrity of the bones.
Some more unexpected and different changes have happened- which I'm hoping will just kick me in the butt and force me into the studio more.
I dropped off 3 paintings to get professionally scanned and will have prints made of them and 4 other paintings I was able to scan myself. My work will be on display and for sale in Bazaar ( http://bazaarbaltimore.com/ ) for the month of December! So that is great news.
On the moto side of things- I successfully installed my heated grips! And changed my oil- but that isn't a new accomplishment. After seeing/barely helping Ben install the kiln and seeing how simple it was, figuring out issues with my washer and being able to fix that and now actually doing some basic electric work- I am feeling pretty awesome and confident with my handyman skills.
And to leave you with a great inspiration /s quote...
"And if men were dyin or sleepin in rooftops beyond, or frogs croaked once or thrice to indicate supreme mystical majesty, what's the diff? and I saw blue sky no different from dead cat- and love and marriage." -excerpt from a poem called Buddha by Karouac
