Lori over at Future Relics Studio asked me how my shoulder was holding up with all this carving on big pots. I am happy to say my shoulder has been fine. The muscles in my hands and arms have been sore, but it's that good sore. The kind the tells you that you worked hard... not that scary pain that screams, "You went too far and did damage!"
I have spent a lot of time complaining about my glasses when doing detail work. I have needed a new prescription for quite awhile so early Monday morning I was off to the eye doctor. I decided to take the leap and try contact lenses. Wearing glasses are a pain the studio. Mine are really scratched despite the fact that I think I am careful with them. I have progressive lenses, so put on the mask to mix glazes and it pushes your glasses up enough so you can't read the recipe. The bottom line is that I just hate wearing glasses. Since I need help seeing both near and far I am trying out mono lenses... one lens is for distance, the other for close up. Hopefully my brain will adjust quickly. I am also looking forward to the day that it doesn't take me 10 minutes to put them in and take them out!
