New Work and a Craft Fair

It has been a long time since my last posting. It has been an interesting few weeks around here. I have not made any new work because I have been focusing on glazing and finding a part time job. A big reality check informed us that it is essential that I make some kind of steady paycheck. I will be working 20 hours a week at Catholic Medical Center as a dietary aide. The hours are good, 3-7pm and it will give me the socialization that I miss being at home all day. I unloaded the kiln yesterday and was very happy to find that the dreaded bubbles did not resurface. I thinned out the glaze, did not double dip and I extended the firing 4 hours. It seemed to do the trick! I am still getting a feel for the 7 new glazes I have. Some combinations worked better than others but that is to be expected. I really liked using a white glaze with color accents. My first craft fair it tomorrow in Londonderry, NH. Sarah and I have been busy gathering everything we need for it. We have a tent and shelves, etc. Everything seems good to go! We have to set up tonight. I hope to see some of you faithful readers there!
