An industrial accident. Just kidding.

A small baker with oceanic traces, glazed in celadon and opal blue, with unglazed handles. The provenance of the shell is Assateague Island, not that it matters.

Lots of little bowls, for garlic, cinnamon, curry, mahlab, zaatar. Whatever you’ve got.

These and pieces like these will be for sale at the Upshur Street Craft Market on Saturday.




These three bowls nest well. I have donated them to the DC Sierra Club as a silent auction item for the annual party tomorrow evening, December 9, in Brookland.  See the website. Come.

Loading the bisque kiln — a new thing for me — is like loading a dishwasher without shelves. Where the dishes can break if you pick them up wrong.

It’s firing now, up to about 1,200 deg.  F., then cooling off tomorrow.

And no, I don’t know what that blue thing is either.
