I now have 197 bricks covered in lace, the brick structures are all finished, the last of the clay forms are in the kiln which started at 8 am this morning, and the clay hanging structure is painted and drying! I can see an end to the tunnel, but it is going to take a full week of non- stop work to get there.
I am off to work on my paper today. As the kiln firing continues I will be checking the temperature every hour to gently guide the kiln to cone 9 temperatures.
Mark your calendars... the opening for the senior Diploma Works exhibition is Saturday, April 30, 2011 from 7-830 pm at the Finnish American Heritage Center, 435 Quincy St, Hancock, MI. I hop
