Thanks much, and... well, just wow.

I do really enjoy it, and sometimes I even enjoy the crazy falling feeling I get with glazing. It reminds me a little of a first kiss... the type where you're not sure if the time is right or if you're the only one feeling that magnetic pull to the other person's lips. I just wasn't feeling the magic last night.

You've actually captured the problem quite well. Unfortunately, this studio is really more geared for the hobbyist and just can't accommodate students being that involved with mixing and firing. It's just something I have to adapt to as long as I remain at BCAE.

Mudflat, on the other hand, is a little more robust in its instruction, integrating kiln-use and glaze mixing/testing into its programs. It's a little easier to do with the longer classes (14 weeks) and a focused mission. It's one of the many things that has me seriously considering switching venues.
