Georges Le Soq calls himself my boss



You may recall my rotton French sock monkey Georges insisted on helping me glaze early yeasterday morning. Above you can see him hindering, I mean helping, load the glaze firing. This morning we peeked in, and you can see what 24 hours and 2200 degrees can do. That teapot is glazed strawberry, but as you see the glaze is green before firing, the reddish brown color goes black. Cool eh? That teapot also was a whisker from touching the kiln lid when closed, and I relieved that it didn't touch the lid and fuse to it in firing.


In other news, Georges went to sleep and had a nap and at noon he wanders out of his closet. Georges is like
"I am hongry" and he is poking through the kitchen and sees the 4 elderly bananas and Georges is like
"zees bananas, dey are UGLY!" and I am like "well, just RIPE, very ripe" and Georges is like
"we make zee banana bread vis dese and some of dose blueberries, oui???" and I am like
"fine, but careful with the blender!!!!" Watch the video below and you'll see Georges and the blender and a boatload of bananas....

George- I am waiting for you to get your summer clothes out.
And if you have time come over and glaze for me.

Georges: You know your way around the kitchen for sure. Where did you get the strength to mash those bananas like that?

I must say its looking more and more if Georges is earning his keep! Maybe he could be hired out to do odd jobs....

Georges puts my baking to shame.

He's terribly ornery for being so small. :)

As someone inexperienced in the ways of the potter that is fascinating to me seeing the before and after of the glazes. Who knew? Well, maybe most of you. But not me!
Georges is a tramp.
