Wishful thinking…..

4 little piggies

made out of clay

went into the oven

one went away

3 little piggies

to be colored and bright

went into another oven

fingers crossed and tight!!!!!

It’s always wise to make more items than needed….as potters, we all know anything can go wrong at any step of the way, and you had better not love anything until it is complete and safe on a shelf… (again, thank you, Charlene….)  My daughter, Lily, requested 3 piggy banks; so I made 4 banks.  Into the bisque kiln they went and although the kiln was candled, obviously, it wasn’t long enough, and one pig broke.  With fingers crossed, 3 pigs went into the glaze kiln, and I’m hoping the kiln goddess is kind.  I will find out tomorrow morning.  Right now snow is on the way, and it will be a cozy night by the fire.  Enjoy the weekend.
