Smashed to Bits!

The life lessons just don't quit.  I was trying to bisque large plates and platters for the kiln going in tomorrow.  I thought I fired the kiln slow enough to dry them out without risking explosion.  Boy was I wrong.  It looks like I blew up everything in the bisque. That means clay, work, electricity and more time all for naught.

I have decided to try to learn not to rush things as much, but knowing my character as I do, it is likely to happen again.  This long weekend was long on lessons and trying my patience as a potter and a mom...time to slow down and focus.  At least that's what I am saying on Monday....

Oh Nancy! That is nasty. So sorry. Don't you wish sometimes the life lessons could just lighten up?
