A few years ago I created a line of pottery for Spa Rosseau at JW Marriott Resort in Minnette, Ontario. This morning I pulled the last of the newest order out of the kiln and feeling a sense of accomplishment:)
Over a month ago I had a wee explosion/fire on the switches panel of my kiln! After 6 years of firings it's finally time for a total overhaul on the oval kiln. New switches, wires, timer, light bulbs, cone rod, coils & insulation! Feels like a brand new kiln and lots of learning along the way. Keeping fingers crossed that everything goes smoothly in the first firing.
Celebrating your birthday by creating functional pottery is a great idea! These ladies were a blast and came up with some great ideas.
