Cooking with gas
Okay, it's actually cooking with electricity, but it's progress all the same. These are all pieces ready for the final hand detailing stage. The two horses are long-standing commitments, while the circular medallions are the Clinky Classic awards. The smaller dark grey medallion in the front is a prototype for some Christmas ornaments. There's another load much like this one that is cooling, and those horses are at the same stage as these.
My hope was to spend the week doing the hand work, which I find especially relaxing, and then start pulling finished horses out of the kiln by week's end. Nothing is uplifting as shiny new ceramic pieces! With all that is going on in the world right now, and with our home town in particular, uplifting is good!
