thanks for playing

i'm revisiting a writing exercise for which i need your help. many things might be said or thought of this activity regarding discipline, work, play, stimuli, focus, creativity, interaction, etc.. ; i'd prefer to just do it (and invite you to join in as well! feel welcome to post your own writings if you desire.) i shall need three words a day: i'll choose among the words i've received the next time i check my account, and write extemporaneously for fifteen minutes, then quickly pare and post. it's fun. so: words, anyone? thanks for playing!

Did someone say Wood and Soda Firing, Cone 6?

two sculptures (Joe Galas/Dianne Freund) excited to be going in the fire

Dianne Freund, Liz Paley, Rob DeKroon and Friends will be firing this weekend at Cedar Creek.
Wood and Soda, Cone six.
Some say this type of firing is better than sex, or chocolate. We haven't sworn off of any of that, but we sure do like it!
Wadding and loading Sat, 10 AM- we're done (five PM? we hope)
Firing Sunday, 8 am until we're done.
Unloading and Cleaning: TBA.

It's our first cone six (we've been firing at ten.) So we anticipate many surprises. You are invited to visit: most welcome to bring food and/or libation to share (though the kiln stokers must remain sober!)
