Just as I was getting ready to make my piece yesterday at around 7 pm, bam out went the lights. I guess I won't complain too much though since they were supposed to be out until tomorrow afternoon. Diana and I went to Meijer to purchase batteries and other essentials to get through another night without power when just as I predicted, the lights were back on when we got home...with about 50 pounds of ice!
Anyway, I still wanted to make my piece so in the partial dark I began. This was cathartic for me as I could not get too obsessive with everything being made to perfection. This is what I came up with...
Clay used: Runyan "Stoneware" purchased from a ceramic shop, owner had no clue when I asked her which kind
Beginning weight: 1 pound 3 ounces
Ending weight: 1 pound 2 ounces
Technique: slab, burlap textured
