And So It Goes.....


I'm glazing, well....in reality painting....hopefully this will be my last firing on Tuesday, although I will have time to do a refire if I absolutely have too.

Once I start painting the ideas seem to crowd in.  This is what I love in pottery process.  I find keeping my notebook with me at all times helps immeasurably.

There will be many opportunities to use new ideas, I'm sure.

The color on the teapots looks strange because the designs are waxed to make doing the background easier.  Waxing is time consuming but not as bad as having to try to correct mistakes.




This will also be over on  Mud Colony.  Take a look at the world of clay!

Just a short post, with toes crossed for a good firing.  We'll see, grasshopper......we'll see....

Enjoy what seems to be a chilly but sunny Sunday here in Southern New England.

 As always, thanks for stopping by.......*s*

  4. I bounce back and forth on waxing or not. But, I find when I take the time to do it and not be lazy that the results are better. Fabulous design.

    1. Hi Meredith.....I don't always wax either; it depends on design and mood.
