New work.

I made a really large oval casserole (that's my lens cap next to it) using little loafers (cone 5).  I hope it makes it through the whole process since it is a bit thinner than I'm used to making them, but it's nice and light.  Adrienne taught us to make these ten or more years ago and I finally got around to trying one.

I also made some pots for Joe's raku party that I had to take home to bisque fire to be sure they would be ready for the party.  I added some medium grog to the little loafers to give the pots more strength through the thermal shock of raku.

Biggest casserole to date
and the only oval one I've tried.
