Finished the plate bats on Friday. Dozen copies each of the three sizes. Heat and humidity in studio reached the extreme. Sixty litres of water recovered from the drying process after five days of running dehumidifier.

My chance to lap the bottoms of the last batch of cat mugs, the ones that were cooling in the kiln when I began the plaster work. I like the bottoms of the feet to be absolutely flat, lapping the unglazed edge over a series of submerged diamond abrasive plates. Looking for that continuous unbroken ring of polished porcelain at the core of the foot. As many times around as it takes to get there.
