Over here on the Home Made Knives and other Home Made Kitchen tools - our own @patris has been making lovely ceramic dipping bowls. When I was down for the Christmas production party we were using one of her ceramic bowls as a dipping bowl because it was just the right shape and depth and we got to talking about how perfect it would be with a built in @Chris Hennes dipping wire. She ran with the idea and went a step further - adding an extra amount of clay on the bottom for heat retention.  

 

I've talked her into making some for any of us who might want to take when home when they come for the workshop. She says she'll meet us at Tomric on Thursday. Anyone who wants one and isn't going to be at Tomric - just say the word and we'll bring one back for you. $30 US will get you one of these beauties. I've got my order in already!

 

Let's start another list here -

May I please get a tilting melanger, but have it shipped to my home rather than take it thru CA customs?  I have a feeling I'll have a lot to take back as it is.

We shall have to ask if he will offer the same price to you if you are having it shipped.

If enough dipping bowls exist, I'd like one too. (If it's easier, maybe @patris and I can meet up another time on this side of the border for the exchange?)

Barring some sort of injury or clay shortage there will be enough, and with so

much advance notice I should be able to get them all fired in time! In the next week or so I will post photos with glaze color and surface decoration options, and everyone can PM me with their choices. @Kerry Beal is coming in later today for a visit and I’m going to rope her into testing them with me to make sure the design is solid before I enter production mode. I’m tickled that people are interested!

That said, if it's easier, I'd be happy to wait.

Fine tuning the prototype dipping bowls. I have video of how well it works with just a tiny bit left in the bottom - which I found amazing. It holds the heat so nicely that the sides didn't end up with that thick layer of cold chocolate. 

 

Now to to figure out how to upload video.

Make sure you book your rooms asap - we need to fill the 20 rooms for the main days that I blocked so I can ask for a few more. I hope to ensure everyone has one.

Bob, you may want to get a few extra bowls -- your students might want to have bowls of their own after your class.  ;-)

I'll go in for both classes as well, if there's still space.  Might as well!

Done - may want to consider dinner as well - it's the casual event of the year!
