OOps, an oversight!

I guess I know why I'm not a carpenter. I built the boat and it is 34 inches and the diagonal on my kiln is 29 inches. I guess I'll have to stand it on end and prop it up somehow. Oh well, necessity is the mother of invention. Problem solving has been the story of my life.  I actually can't wait till morning when I will flip it over and add the stern and the port decks and any other foo fa raw that I can come up with. I am anxious to see the interior of the boat. The stick interior will be awesome for a glaze that breaks and pools. Oh, I guess that ain't my shino.
 I don't have a lot of time for making in the next month so I might as well make what turns my crank. The boat form reminds me of Vancouver Island and paradise .Maybe
the boat is a metaphor for my longing to head out to sea.
