And, too, a back story about the shell platters:
“And, too, we wanted to create a similar piece but in blues. We substituted dark cobalt blue for the green and a mixture of cyan and added turquoise, keeping the whites and clears the same. The piece was to be smaller so we proportioned the weights down. We fired up the kiln and waited with excited anticipation to see our shell platter in blue. The firing cycle takes over 24 hours to go from start to when it has cooled down sufficiently so we can open the kiln. When we did and took a quick look… ”OMG, what on earth!!” The piece was just about black with a hint of blue and some white.
So what did we do…”let’s do it again !” We used the same exact formula as the green and blue platter, again just with blues. Lo and behold, what did we get?Basically the same thing again!
What’s that saying? ”The definition of insanity is doing the same thing and expecting a different result”. Well, that’s the “Meshugeh” part of the title. Meshugeh is” loco” in Yiddish. My consolation is what Father Zeoli (my 6th grade Religion teacher) used to say…”a jackass doesn’t fall into the same hole twice”. So, I’m not one of those…I feel better!” –Bob
Well, that’s a wrap! Just perfect, for spring, shell pattern bowls and a lot of dots in handmade glass.
But, wait, there is more!
