Shrinking Vases and Tweeting Birds

We are throwing vases once again! This time we are getting ready for the American Art Pottery Association's Convention that is at the end of April. There is a two day Art Pottery Show that is open to the public on April 30 and May 1 at the Sheraton Bucks County Hotel in Langhorne, PA.

Bruce is teasing me that my vases are going down. This can be frustrating to say the least. We can be so proud of making a tall pot but by the end of the firing this piece will be around 15% smaller.

We decided that we need to keep up with what time it is in the studio. We both don't wear watches or follow the clock all that much. We just ask one another and most of the time we both don't know. Bruce has his cell phone that has the time on it but sometimes this can be inconvenient with wet clay covered hands. There is time on our heat/cooling controller, but this is a few plus steps away from our wheels. Oh well, we decided that we would hang up time. This is a special clock. On the hour every hour a different bird will tweet.
