Newton’s Heating/Cooling Law applied to a kiln-firing, so impatient art students can go get some sleep instead of waiting nine and a half hours for the kiln to reach a temperature they can look at their ware. —- They didn’t really appreciate me defiling their studio with math. However, I jumped around like a giddy school-girl while I compared the actual cooling with the model.

This is the first thing I have ever reblogged to this tumblr, but it’s bloody brilliant.
Quick shot from the wedding earlier today while it is still today (10 minutes to spare!). I’ll be processing images over the next couple of days. The couple is hammering shut a box they will open in ten years which contains … They don’t know! Other than a bottle of wine and letters from their parents and grandparents. And … maybe … other things? I guess they will find out in ten years.
So, I’ve finally gotten around to setting up my photo studio to take some real shots of my ceramic work. I’ll be shooting all of my finished work over the holiday weekend and updating this over the next couple of weeks with the images as I process them. Next weekend, I’ve also got a wedding to shoot; a few of those images will likely show up as well.
I’m considering selling some of the ceramics pieces on Etsy. Those of you with experience using it: Thoughts?
