    After being stupid sick for a week. And thinking you won't get your big gift in time. I stayed after work and actually got the damn thing in the kiln.

    2 DAYS

    That's how long it will have to be in the kiln. Holy shit. 2 whole fucking damn days. It's that big. My hips hurt like hell, my back, and my toes started freaking out from leaning over the inside of the kiln and setting all this shit up. So, if I didn't majorly fuck it all up. If it turns out as nice as I hope it does :x: I'll deliver it to you myself on Friday after work. A couple of the smaller pieces might have to get mailed to you at a later date as all the small kilns are being claimed so I may not get them done in time. But the big one, it should be ready.

    :o


    there's always that panic about handmade stuff that it will be hated, so far I've been very lucky, but what if this time I'm not? :noes:

    Always that concern with anything, but pride in a self made product is usually worth more than a price

    pulled it out this morning and I'm super happy with it :run:

    it's friggin' heavy


    I accidentally put a small dent in the kiln shelf when I took it out :o hopefully no one notices until they've forgotten I was the last one that used it. Plus there's already a crack running through the shelf not far from my dent, so it's not like I caused the first oopsie :mamoru:
