It’s been about 2 years since the last raku session so this was overdue. Perfect weather, recent retirement, and renewed enthusiasm conspired to make a firing all but inevitable. Results were encouraging and, as always, new things were learned about this tricky and unpredictable technique. Thank you kiln gods!
We completed our first glaze firing since a little over two years ago and it’s also the first glaze firing in our Newfield home. New church-key patterns were tried out and old glazes stirred up. Results were encouraging on some fronts and there are opportunities, as always, for tweaking the art and the process.
My newly-renovated Web site includes this blog, for which this is its inaugural post. It may also be the last post, in which case the title could just as well be “My Last Blog Post” or “My Only Blog Post”. You see, I do pottery, not blogging. I haven’t the faintest whisper of interest in blogging. I don’t see the point, I don’t know how to do it, and I don’t care to learn–life is too interesting to spend any significant time writing and managing a blog, of all things.
Given my deeply profound indifference to blogging, you may wonder why I bothered putting up this post at all. The answer is simple: I didn’t. My ghost-writing husband did it.
