Crunch Time

With a week left before we leave for the American Craft Council's show in Baltimore, we are facing a mountain of glazing.....

Waxing the bottoms to protect them from absorbing the glaze.

All of the pots in these photos have been bisqued only.

Measuring the winter.... we worked hard!

By the way, if any of you wish to receive an invite to the Baltimore show, just email us your snail mail address and we'll send a postcard out tomorrow! The dates are February 24-27 at the Baltimore Convention Center on Pratt St. We will be in space # 1908.
