Glaze Tong Fail

I knew there was a reason why I didn't use glaze tongs very often....

The Porcelain Bowl/Faceting/Glaze Tong combo will not be occurring again anytime soon.

It seems as though almost everything is getting a coat or two of celadon glaze on it.  It's going on 3 different clay bodies with a variety of slip/design combos underneath so hopefully it's not too overwhelming to see that much of one glaze in a kiln.  

I was hoping to fire tomorrow but it looks like I may have to put it off until after school vacation week.  We're off to Austin on Saturday via NY on Friday.  

We begin our house search on Monday!

bummer. You must have a helluva grip, dude?!! or that bowl was pretty thin.

Haha....Yeah, I guess I don't know my own strength!

I'm going to go with too thin though. Finesse is not my game in sports or the studio.

I'm not used to faceting so I need to train myself to use more clay and realize that I'm not actually wasting it if the pot stays in one piece.
