Micro Inspiration

You know it has been a rough day when you eat cheese for dinner.  It was delicious, and I do feel better.  A special shout out to Trader Joe's goat's milk cheddar.

Finished Work- Unraveling

After slight disasters I think this is going to work. I am trying to glue it to the base with pc 7.  The southern ice in cone 10 oxidation is amazing (the base is a chunk of it).  It sort of glazes itself with a satin sheen. Yummy. The keraflex is fragile but hopefully it will glue and stay put. We will know tomorrow.

Work in progress- mucho Keraflex

Many layers later I think the center is finished.  I started a base tonight out of my last bag of Southern Ice. Sadly they are not importing that amazingly white clay to the US anymore. I think it will be just as white as the Keraflex. I hope it all comes together.  I fired a sample in a gas reduction.  It was sort of blueish, so I think I will stick with cone 10 oxidation. Whew!

Inspiration- Sloth

The Journal of Illustrated Science: Totem Animals: Sloth:

I love this drawing and read the post if you are interested in the unusual sloth/moth symbiosis. Fascinating!
