Cone 1 re-fire is done as is the cone 8 test for dirt glaze. Next will be a bisque load of the last bowls for Wenaha. Tomorrow I will do a run through of my video. It will not go anywhere except Pat's phone. We are concerned about sound. Also, The second bucket of clay won't be ready although maybe I can get it done first. I am going to shoot it inside but plan on doing the real thing outside. This will be fun. Also I framed 2, 5X7 paintings. The Hedges show seems to be canceled or at least pushed back. I made contact with the 3rd exhibitor for Walter Clore. He will not be in town so I will deliver and hang his work.
