The mug making has begun and is in full progress. You may remember that I’m making 500 mugs for the Penland Benefit Auction. I think I’ve gotten about 100 thrown. You can see them here in the kiln as I’m preparing to fill it for the first bisque firing. I’ll have a few of my own pieces (pots for sale if they live) but the kiln is mostly just mugs. I don’t even have any shelves and posts in it. A big thank you to Cynthia Bringle for teaching me that trick.

Cross your fingers that they all survive this firing and the glaze firing that will come next.
