It needs little turtle feet, so it can be turtles all the way down!

Personally, I am abuzz with anticipation. I can only imagine that many other people are as well but are paralyzed by the sheer awesomeness. Can't wait!

Thank you to all for your support with the TC SO. I am grateful and will send out your pieces when I get the go ahead from Chip. He's been having quite a time with the storm damage. We will keep his family in our thoughts.
I will be firing again the first week of December. Probably not a ton of tea ware, but some.
Bill

Hi all,
Unloading Sundays 18 hour firing tonight. My longest firing yet. I've looked in there and it looks great... I am still amazed at how each firing can get better than the last. I'll post pictures later. At work right now and this computer doesn't have a SD card "reader/slot/thing".
Cheers,
Bill

Sounds great, Mr. Bill! Cannot wait to see the results of your firing. Maybe some of the TA SO peeps will want to add a piece or two to their order??? :idea: :wink: :twisted:

Couldn't load flickr last night to load pics to use here!!?? Got it now though..
Here is a few quick shots from this last firing. I have sunshine in the forecast for Saturday so I can take better pics, these are taken after the sun went down. Daylight savings time makes it hard for me to get home in time from work.

Well, I need to get ready for work. At least it's Friday, my students will be "lively" today... :(
