Fall is so busy in the studio!
The Brownies have been here again and their pinch pots are cooling in the kiln.
Every one should be getting a badge!
We've had another great opening down at W78th!
Great to see everybody!!
I have turned to traditional gift wares for the season.
And No, I don't feel like I sold my soul to pay bills this year.
It's actually a nice break from the usual work.
Finding quirks with the new brown clay Standard 211, it does not like to be pushed into
oval footed wares. Cracks up the wa-zoo! I have tossed an awful lot work in the past month.
Stuff looks great going in the bisque, coming out, I put the shard bin next to the kiln.
Even taking as much as three weeks to dry under plastic is not helping so I will be making
a load of round pots with this clay body. Shame because it throws like a dream.
Oh yes those are batter bowls and colanders…..
Gett'n Sprigy With It…
sorry I couldn't stop myself :)
and coffee jars…… how long has it been?
making models for fish molds……
and burnished large pots for horsehair.
Lots of weaving this winter, but need to fire before the snow flies.
and the big kiln still needs rewiring………
oh to be a potter!
