Crap! No card.....

Today was our final Raku class with the Artscenter students and we had a great time, except for the cold. I feel chilled to the bone. I took some really great pictures and just sat down to load them on my computer, but there was no card in the camera! I live with a professional photographer, wouldn't you think I would know by now to check the camera for the memory card! So, sorry, no photos, maybe someone from the class has some and I can post them later. Anyway, the firing was really good, everyone got some great pieces, there were a few losers but that's Raku, some loss is expected. The tiles are cracking randomly and I can't figure out why. Any raku folks out there having that problem? We might have four tiles in the same firing, same can and two of them break right in half. I had this happen with my last firing too. Is it the construction, thickness, bisque? Just don't know, it's so random.Thanks to all of you for a great class, looks like everyone will be back for the Spring session and more fun testing our wits! This is by far the BEST class I have ever had!!!! You guys R.O.C.K.!!!!!!!!! I may have more thoughts for you later, but I'm crashing right now. I woke up at 11:30pm last night and never went back to sleep because I am an insomniac, so I'm off to bed soon for a couple of hours of sleep hopefully! Thanks everyone for a great day :)

You know, my camera won't let you shoot pictures without the card, which is a feature I really like. I was using Wesley's camera because she has the good one, but it tells you in tiny little words that there is no card and I can't see that small anymore.It's too bad because I had some great pictures :(
