Happy New Year, all!
It appears 2010 is determined to come in tonight under cover of snow. Though we've got the second full moon of the month rising tonight, it will be tough to see through the snow clouds.
I've loaded up the electric kiln for a bisque firing tomorrow. I'm planning on the first firing of the year late next week.
For once, my plan is to make pots steadily through the winter and have lots of inventory for the spring and summer shows. We'll see how that works out. I've got to get a bit more heat into the studio to make it at all inviting to work there when it's 10 degrees and heavy wind blowing outside. The studio was built as a garage, hence relatively little insulation and at least two very cheesy windows.
On to some friends' house in Monument Beach (not far from us) for tonight's New Year's Eve party. Good food and wine, good friends, and we stay long enough to celebrate the coming of 2010 to Labrador. Which means we get home before midnight Eastern time.
Safe and happy New Year's Eve, everyone. See you on the other side.
