Dear David F.
That was a good idea (never thought of), to put something protective =
under test tiles. I guess I avoid making anything over the dreaded test =
tiles...But since I throw the little miseries anyway, I could just make =
an indentation with my finger just above the foot and let the foot =
spread a bit, like a small gravy dish. Catch the drippings. Great idea. =
I have kiln shelves that have stories to tell... =20

Today I was reading Mel's post about glue gun stamps, and I glue gunned =
a lot of the tests to my studio wall in rows. Hope I am not moving in =
the near future. They look pretty neat and now I do not hear Claus man =
saying "what are you going to do with all of those little bowls" that =
have been living on "his" bar. Not much entertaining, so they go =
relatively undisturbed. But he still asks sometimes if I can make =
round pots. Altering has not really come into fashion with him yet. =20

My kiln is literally falling apart brick by brick so this weekend she is =
getting a mud pack. =20

Best regards,
Alisa in Denmark
