I have a bunch of pictures of finished pieces to share! But I’m just going to give you a quick little parade of teaser photos, since it’s late and I’ve had enough of the internet for today.
Here we go!
A beautiful little milk pitcher in white and Randy’s blue. I am so sad about this piece. It had a handle… and somehow made it into the bisque kiln with its handle broken off. So it was fired without a handle, making it incredibly difficult to grind the stubs of the handle off after it was fired. It was one of the most perfect things I’d done. Ah, well. I still love it. It fits very nicely in my hand. ^.^
The bowl and possibly the plate will be up for sale on Etsy eventually. I’m hoping to post a few new items on my Etsy store by the end of this week. Speaking of, by the way, I sold my first piece to a total stranger a week ago! It was so exciting! ^_^
Class has been going really well and I’ve been doing a bunch of closed forms. I’ll be posting pictures of those pieces as soon as I email them to myself from my phone. They’re kind of a thing right now… I may be stuck on them for a while…! So much fun to throw.
So, it turns out working 8 hour days and not having time during the week to go into the studio for practice is really, really frustrating. I find myself wanting to go back to the time when I could go to La Mano whenever I wanted to work. Trying to justify spending my entire Saturdays from now on working on my pottery. Wish I didn’t have to make such a choice. Stupid bills. I hate them.
There will be more as soon as possible… I am going to try to be better about updating regularly, but life is still pretty loopy at this point.
