Kissed By The Flame

Some pots are quiet, they don’t speak of carving or imagery. This one didn’t even speak of glaze colors or designs. Sometimes it’s a good idea to listen to the quiet. That would probably have been a better name for this post, maybe it’s the name of the vase. With nothing but a spearmint liner glaze, this piece was placed in the soda kiln. It’s about 11 inches tall so it was put in the top with a sculpture and a few other tall pieces. The soda and the flame did the decoration.

The vase is still very quiet but I think it came out well. I’m pleased with the painting the soda and flame did.

Join a Credit Union

Many people are upset about Bank of screw America charging a $5 to use your debit card.  I've even seen a petition going around  The other big banks that we bailed out with our tax dollars are sitting poised to see how this works for BoA.  If we simply get used to it then many of the other banks that we own will start charging customers also.   We may see advertising wars like who has the lowest debit card rate but the bottom line is, you're going to pay for it.
The other option is to become a member of a credit union.  As a member you do own the bank and have a say in what happens.  Imagine being asked to vote on a bank policy.  Credit Unions are non-profit which benefits the members, and they didn't need to be bailed out.  If everyone moves away from the big banks and joins a credit union, or at least a small bank, then the big one's won't be too big to fail or too big to screw the customer.
