Tomorrow I will put into action what is in my head. I plan to make 3 bowls for my beau and his two daughters. If I sketch the idea(s) tomorrow, Sunday put glass to glass, then in the week I can do a 1st fuse.

I’ve made several pieces in the past 2 weeks or so. No longer am I unsure or nervous about firing up the kiln. Last week I bought a sketch book where I can record some ideas for kiln inspiration. I’ll post some images shortly. :)
Finally! My first test piece is in the kiln firing! I could NOT find the exact fuse, but the one I did get seems to be working…? There are 8 possible segments and I felt angsty figuring out each entry… hopefully I got it right. ha. Exciting for sure!
Today I finished hooking up my kiln only to find a broken fuse. Tomorrow I’ll get a replacement.
Today I also kiln washed a shelf and one mold.
The shelving is also up so I could put my things away in order.
Things are looking good. :)
I brought with me my kiln to Vancouver. It is a smaller one – portable one on wheels. Last week I got the garage organized and today I am going to mix the kiln wash and prep then fire the kiln!
I plan to take my (portable) kiln with me to Vancouver this summer. It is my idea to stay with my beau there for a month or more. This ‘holiday’ will give me the time and space I need to create.
