Teapots are done and the Princess is Home.........

 and her cat.......

I have spent more time in the kitchen than a cook feeding the Prussian army.  They have consumed mass quantities of food and drink. Talking, lots of talking!  Conversation highlights thus far; fishing, snacks, hiking, gardening, feeding the world, feeding ourselves, cats, feeding the cat, beer, fishing, Mamacarts, Africa, and beer.  We have hiked, attended a fly fishing symposium, bottled 5 gallons of beer, and just had loads of fun.  We have not been to the grocery very much as the freezer and basement have really paid off!  Awesome!  

This is how we whip cream in Paine Falls on a 20 degree night when you just need a little more strawberry shortcake!  





And loads of hiking!  A day at Hidden Lake...



But alas life goes on and the teapots are done!  







Still working on this glaze but getting some pretty nice crystal development.

Hi Suzi, yeoman's duty! LOL! I haven't had a chance to come from air for a couple weeks and miss keeping up with everybody!

Thank you on the teapots!! Kids sleep in and finding time in the studio early morning with coffee. So quiet........ forgot what the chaos was like!

I feel like I stood in the triangle of my stove, frig, and sink 24/7 during the past two months, they just never stop eating! So good to have a daughter in the house isn't it? Mine came home for a quick weekend, just left, with a bag full of food, haha,
BEAUTIFUL teapots, yum!
