No more toofs!

So I got my wisdom teeth out today and it wasn't terrible. Not something I would want to do on a regular basis, but all things considered it was tolerable. I don't remember falling asleep, but I woke up all kinds of screwy. I took a pic of my swollen face right after surgery with my phone, but I can't upload it here. I did get sick a little earlier tonight, but I'm feeling ok now. Really, the nausea is far worse than the pain.

Anyway, I've got a couple of days to recover and I plan on doing a whole lot of nothing. I did manage to get the kiln unloaded tonight (bending over the kiln is not a good idea by the way, but I'm just so impatient) and mostly everything turned out very well--just one bowl with some bloating. My custom bowl order came out really well, so that's exciting. I'm hoping that tomorrow I will be feeling better enough that I can get a few pots photographed and uploaded to Etsy.

And lastly, I had my trimming box featured over at the granddaddy of all pottery blogs--Emily Murphy's wonderfully informative blog. Thanks so much Emily!!


  1. hey... success! sounds like they left your jaw in there so that's good.

  2. Congrats on the molar extraction and glad to hear you are not feeling many ill effects from the procedure. I had mine taken out a number of years ago. No pain or anything, but supposedly when I woke up I had a complete conversation with the dentist about how baseball players are paid too much. I have no recollection of this conversation...drugs can do some wacky stuff to you.

  3. Hi Ben, so glad you came through ok, loved that cup you posted today on etsy via facebook, just beautiful.

  4. Ben..I just came across your work through Linda Starr's blog.. great work! I, too, fire cone six electric. Love the combinations on some of your pieces and the runs that some produce. lovely!. Heal well from your extractions.:)
