The Kiln is cooling

Here is a photo of some new small toggle clasps in the greenware stage. Now they are glazed and the big kiln is cooling. I will open it later today. The thermocouple in my smaller kiln AIM 88 needs to be replaced so my firing this week has been delayed until I could get enough together to use the bigger kiln. I feel lucky to have this backup. Since Aim is closed temporarily for "restructuring" I am working with Bailey on which is the right thermocoupler. I am also going to put the question out there to the Beads-of-Clay Group. Wish me luck.


  1. Hi Mary

    Your beads are so beautiful. I wish I had found your site before Valentine's Day! I would have loved some of those heart beads. Blogging is new to me, but so far so much fun! I loved your ABS submission for last month and am planning on entering for this month! Very exciting!


  2. Hello Mary, what you been up too? I have been waiting to see those clasps you made ;^)

    By the way...
    I sent you a spreader of love
    blog award you can see it on my blog.

  3. Hi Stephanie,
    thank you so much for stopping by and looking at my heart beads. I am glad that you like them. It is so nice of you to take the time to tell me. I will be looking for your ABS submission this month. Glad you liked my last one.

  4. Hi Fab Fibers,
    Well, I just went and scanned the toggles and put them on my blog. Thanks for the interest and I hope you like them. You are so kind to give me the Blog Award.
