Ready for Summer

I am so ready for summer as I have been anxiously waiting until I have the time to spend experimenting with forms and glazes. At the moment, my house and studio are a disaster since we are patching and painting the entire interior. So, I am hoping that by the end of next week, I will be found in the studio working away at all of my new ideas.

Just in time for summer, I purchased the Val Cushing Handbook of glazes. This is a collection of Cushings teachings while at Alfred University. Upon unwrapping the handbook, I flipped open to a random page and was stunned to find the answer to a problem that was haunting me for months. I can't wait to get into the studio and start formulating new glazes. This book can only be purchased directly from Val and Elsie (who is the kindest and most accommodating woman ever). I highly recommend this book if you are just starting out with glaze chemistry. It is full of recipes too! I'll keep you updated in my glaze experimentation journey this summer. I'm heading out to my patio to enjoy the sun and an iced coffee.
