On the drive back to Canberra after a lovely weekend at Janet Deboos’ home in the Blue Mountains, I finally had the thrill of seeing kangaroos! I can go back home now….
I unloaded the kilns and laid everything out. There are more pieces to glaze and others to luster and decal. This is my last week here. Finished work soon!

On Thursday, with the help of one of the techs, Bernie, we fired a glaze test in the new raku kiln he built – firing to cone 6 in just a few hours. Both the kiln and the tests worked well.
Then it was Pizza Day on Friday! I made the sauce, Greg Daley made his famous crust, Janet the cakes and the students provided the rest. The woodstove pizza oven is in the kiln courtyard, designed by Allan Watt, former head of program. It was sunny and warm (this is winter?) and we enjoyed the meal outdoors.
