Bill’s glaze kiln turned out beautifully!! ...

Loading a glaze kiln of Bill’s small sculptures is a fun puzzle! I try to fit as many as I can without any touching. If they touch, the glazes will meld together and they’ll stick to each other. I just turned the kiln on and we will be unloading on Monday. ...

Yesterday, Bill and I had a potluck, pizza party wedding. With the help of friends and family, we gathered tables and benches, strung lights, and transformed Island Folk Pottery into a sparkling stage for joyful celebration. I made the pizza dough and Bill manned the outdoor oven. Delicious food was contributed by all. We could not have asked for a more perfect day. I am so grateful for the teamwork that helped to make our wedding truly special. ...
