NASA, I don’t believe this is space debris.
1. In addition to enjoying learning about and making different types of lids I also thought I’d create pieces for the upcoming wood-firing. One rule I forgot was that for wood-fired pieces, the lid should extend beyond the lip. Perhaps like these (photos courtesy of The Spruce):
When it was time for wood-firing I acknowledged the error of my ways several times… a lesson learned.
2. The other thing I was interested in trying was combining my finished pieces with a crystal or stone. Here are the wood-fired finished pieces that were fashioned with a crystal or stone fully with mindfulness and sage.

Thank you Shawn
Claybuddies is a Facebook group that is very important for learning new things, and for getting constructive feedback on pieces.
Recently a photo was posted that asked why a glaze had begun “cracking off”. In a few brief comments I learned to look at glaze in a new light… “Glaze is like trousers.” Imagine that! LOL Here is the fuller comment: “…Glaze is like trousers. Too small for the pot and it splits (crazing) too big and it falls off (shivering).“
I am grateful for the opportunities to learn more… about anything.
