Phew! What a relief, the kiln goddess was looking out for me. I opened the kiln yesterday afternoon after a lot of procrastination. There was a lot riding on this opening, my only chance for the exhibition in September. I was so relieved, no disasters and I am even pleased with the exhibition centre pieces, the pool bowls.
I raced down to the nearest beach and shot these images in the fading light.
I took this shot above this morning.
Next the crab plates
Broken coral plates
Blue swimmer crab plates
I tidied up a few rough edges last night and this morning was at the beach again for more shots. Last night Geoff drove me to the beach and at one stage when I was walking back to change the camera battery while leaving the pots on the sand. Geoff rather casually said as I got near "Your pots are floating away". I turned around to see them sailing away on a wave, at least they don't have holes.
Sunday we celebrated Fathers' Day and Chris's birthday. Here are two gorgeous boys, Chris adores his little cousin but Edward is concentrating on a strawberry.
