Friday I experimented with overlapping glazes. Hopefully I'll be rewarded by my experiments rather than disappointed. Got my fingers crossed.
With the weather cooperating I fired the kiln over night. The kiln will cool down all day and won't be unloaded till late tonight or early tomorrow morning. Working with clay teaches a great deal of patience. Stay tuned to see results tomorrow.
At the farmer's market Saturday it threatened rain and attendance was down the first few hours. As the clouds and fog lifted attendance picked up and pottery sales did the same. Among other vegetables for the week I purchased some red okra. The red okra seemed more tender and sweeter than the usual green. It was also a bit more slender in size. The farmer said these are the last okra of the season. I prepared them as I usually do, cut in bite sized pieces, breaded and baked, but substituted flax meal for corn meal and baked them at 350 F for 30 minutes. They turn green after cooking but they were delicious. Thanks for reading and for all your comments..
