I started writing the grant from Walla Walla today but ran out of space in the form for y resume. I must say my proposal sounds pretty good to me. I am proposing to give a lecture, discussion and demonstration for about 4 hours. It will include the traditional things I do and how the tradition of pottery is so much better than buying expensive clay and glazes. I should finish it tomorrow assuming the kiln load that is currently cooling is good. The dirt glaze looked odd at ^8 and we will see how it looks at re-fire. The pots in the kiln are headed to Moses Lake and Dayton assuming the glaze worked. There is another glaze load tomorrow. I also ordered a new bulb for my projector and am starting to paint larger again for my show in July at a winery.
