Fired my test kiln today. It was loaded with test chips for the glaze that is supposed to be white for over a dark glaze. I adjusted it and now it is weak and disappears when put over a dark glaze. I will test the glaze tomorrow. We had First Thursday in Kennewick this evening. It was very disappointing because virtually no folks were there who are part of the gallery. There was an interesting exhibit at the gallery up the street. A guy drew scenes that looked they were right out of a drug movie in the 70s. One odd thing is that there was a script that said, essentially, I am just a weird guy with a beard and glasses and when I get old I hope I'll be an old guy with a beard and glasses who the young folk think is cool. I'm sorry but it doesn't work that way. If you are an old guy with or without glasses and a beard the young folks with think you are an old fool. Trust me, I am an old guy. That's the way it is. I think that with the speed of social media it is getting more so that way. I couldn't think if a catchy title.
