thanks! hope it fires ok. I don't know what those little gloss orange spots are going to do on top of the white satin matte with a mason stain yellow wash on top. May the Kiln Godz find favor on it and bless it and make it look cool after firing!
glad you like it. I have a young American friend who recently moved to your beautiful country. Not sure where he lives in New Zealand -- but I don't see how anywhere could be a bad place to live there. Which reminds me -- can people from other countries retire there?
It would appear that unlimited amounts of US dollars will help when applying for residency
... cut & paste from Google search ... New Zealand does not have an official permanent retirement immigration category. You may nevertheless still be able to retire to New Zealand provided you:
• Qualify for the temporary retirement category.
• Qualify for permanent residence in one of the country's normal immigration categories.
Temporary Retirement Category This is a two year visitor visa which, importantly, is renewable. This visa is not for everyone, however. The main requirement is money. This begins with the NZ$2,600 application fee. Then to be approved under the Temporary Retirement Category you must:
• be aged 66 years or over
• invest NZ$0.75 million in New Zealand for two years, in an acceptable investment
• demonstrate ownership of NZ$0.5 million of maintenance funds and an annual income of NZ$60,000 at the time you apply
• meet standard health and character requirements
• hold and maintain comprehensive travel and/or health insurance for the duration of your stay
Successful applicants will be issued with a two year multiple entry visitor's visa/permit which allows them to stay for two years, and travel in and out of New Zealand during that time.
You can re-apply for another visitor's permit/visa under this category if you:
• continue to meet all the requirements above; and
• can demonstrate that you have maintained your travel and/or health insurance and your investment funds in an acceptable investment during the two year duration of your stay.
You may include your partner in your application; however dependent children cannot be included.
