When I built the studio I thought that 10×4 meters would be plenty but it filled up faster than I would have imagined. A white board that I picked up at Costco some time back was just gathering dust because I couldn’t find a good place for it, but finally the light bulb went on and now the whiteboard issue is resolved.
Since the ceiling is low here it is quite easy to reach up and make notes, and I have a new appreciation for magnetic markers and erasers!
We fired up the wood pizza oven on Saturday night, our first fall firing, with around twenty guests over the course of 9 hours, from two pm to past eleven pm. Four batches of dough in all (a new record), pesto, curry, seafood, teriyaki chicken, tuna n mayo (tuna mayo pizza with wasabi is awesome, go figure!), bacon and sausage, and yes, even dessert pizza with marshmallows, chocolate, and bananas.
One of the guests is a calligraphy artist, and he brought his brushes for a small calligraphy demo, which was very interesting. He did my studio name in two different styles, and I am really split on which I like best. Both are just fantastic.
Perhaps I can convince him to do the same thing in iron deco on some clay tiles next time he comes over to visit…
