Cleaning Crew at Work

Game Room

Of course, the pool table is piled up again but eventually those molds will be mended and on the shelves and all the bisque will be put away.

Mud Room

life of a tree -- #1  poured moldsWe have not been able to pour molds for a week because of the water heater problem. However, we did pour today (and probably again tomorrow) in an attempt to get caught up on all our orders. The large trees with the extra branches are the hardest to do and take up a lot of space on the pouring table.  However, the three people who ordered them all have other projects they are working on. Most of the other trees are poured and on the shelves.

Ceramic Studio

Nowell 1681 Spruce Christmas tree cat picThere was a large group on Monday for the Decal Diva workshop and the tables are still set up for it.  The workshop scheduled for tomorrow was cancelled because there wasn’t time to pour the bisque. There are ten stations ready for tomorrow night and everyone should have a project to finish from last week or a new one to start on. Many of the summer samples are being moved and bisque packed away for next year, however we can always get it out for you on request. The sample trees are on the top shelf now and will be lit up as soon as the electric is run to them.

(By the way, all the decal pieces are fired and ready to be picked up.)

Next Week’s Workshop

pumpkin stack candy dish CCThe Patchwork Pumpkin Stack Candy Jar is the workshop project for next week. We will be learning how to use a liner brush to make stripes and plaids. You will receive your own liner brush as part of the workshop. (If you already have one you can request the small quilted pumpkins in bisque.  Depending on how detailed you make your pumpkin stack,  you may not have time to paint the small pumpkins during the same session.) It is important that you let me know early that you are doing the workshop so that we pour enough pieces. I already have three signed up. Of course, you can still come on Thursday and not do the workshop, and you can do the workshop on another day if you let me know ahead of time.
