I am not addicted yet after eating two oreo cookies. I find them almost too sweet in comparison to a regular cookie. We wondered how much that the sales of these things increased after someone out there was comparing them to addictive drugs. They had many of them out for sale at the grocery store and they had dropped the price a little. We usually don't buy cookies because we eat them. I think the cold weather made us weak and we could not resist them.
I did get the glaze on these three pieces and the art teacher fired them for me last week. I don't know why they lean in the photo but I think the cameraman must have leaned to the right a little bit. The red brown glaze ended up being not shiny. I may wax it to see if I can get a shine on it. I have known of people who used shoe wax on their pottery to give them a final finish.
I mentioned in my Photo a Day blog that it looks like chocolate syrup on the bowl. If you look closely you can see the caramel syrup on the surface also. It was an experiment with glaze.You put a flat plain glaze color on them and when they get heated to 1,000 degrees or more they turn to glass. The glaze color changes in that process.
The math teacher has sick children today so I am back in the high school math room again. I didn't think I will be called in but the phone did ring about 6:30 telling me to come to work. We had a harder freeze last night but it doesn't look like much damage is done in town. We just stay warmer than being out in the open on the prairie. Thanks for stopping by today.
