This weekend I was in my studio cleaning all my recently glazed pieces in preparation for firing. My husband had opened all our doors and turned off the a/c since it was so lovely outside. It seemed like a great idea until I heard a small scratchy noise. I have to admit I immediately thought it was a mouse but was pleased when I looked around and found a small bird sitting on the trim of my wall! I called my husband in for "critter control" and after an hour of an extremely entertaining and wildly unique bird wrangling technique he managed to get the little bird outside...and my studio remained unharmed except for a few bird droppings. And of course all doors were promptly shut and we opted for opening the screens on our doors for airflow instead!
Although the bird was an exciting edition to the weekend the bigger accomplishment was that I managed to get TWO (count them...two!!) glaze firings done. The second is still to hot to unload but the first came out wonderfully! I will be unloading the second later today.
