I have finally started glazing and decorating the balloon cups I made last June.  When I do a new form like this I have to stare at it for a long time before I put brush to surface.  Since I made these as an experiment I am going to glaze in the same spirit.  The one below is not terribly successful as I want to emphasize the seam more and paint in a looser more wash style.  I have seven of them so I should be able to get an idea of what I want.  But breaking old habits is hard!

Thanks for all the wonderful comments on Winter's creativity on Wordless Wednesday. They match and outdo anything on lolcats!   It would seem we all have a shared experience!

It started out as a beautiful day but quickly clouded over.  I hear rumors of another storm on its way.....we'll see, Grasshopper......we'll see.

This will be posted over on Mud Colony.  Hit the link and discover more in the world of clay.

Enjoy your Sunday and as always, thanks for stopping by............*s*


  1. Hi Suzi,

    The cups are lovely and looks like a lot of fun glazing and painting them.
    My Sister used to make pottery, so I have some that she experimented with.

    Happy weekend

  2. Ok I'm not feeling so bad on all my procrastination. Ha. Nice to have a group of the same form to experiment with the glazing.

  3. those are going to be great! you put so much detail into your work, i can understand why you wait before painting a new form.

  4. The first cup looks great. I hope you won't make us wait several months before we get to see them finished.
