Sunday

We had a successful opening Thursday night.  There was a pretty good turn out and many nice things said about my work.  The hit of the evening was Humpty Dumpty.

The turtle below was originally intended for the show but his bottom detached in front during the bisque firing. I have never had this problem before so why this happened is one of life's little mysteries.   I've come up with a couple of ways to work with the break.  We'll see, grasshopper....we'll see.....

Can you see the split ?


Nina Hope Pfanstiehl, the other clay person in the show did wonderful buildings.  The Edward King House, the former Newport Library, was a great favorite by her.  For many of her historic interpretations she does photos of the original building.  I couldn't quite manage to get her photos in my pictures.  I'll get more sorted and posted over the next week.

Edward King House........Interior


I had wanted to do a long post on Friday but woke up with a wicked migraine; I finally got rid of it last night.  It's goldenrod season;  I love autumn but not many of the pollens that abound.  Ahh country living.

I'm going to try to get this over to Mud Colony to add to clay happenings around the world.

Enjoy the day and, as always, thanks for stopping by...........*s*

  2. Dearest Suzi,
    Too bad for that break... Otherwise it would have been a PURRFECT piece! Still looks very cute.
    What an artwork those replica buildings with interior. One can only revel in the artistry of others... with lots of admiration. Hope you headache went and stayed away!
    Hugs,
    Mariette

  5. The joys of pottery! Congratulations on your opening! Your turtle would love to be tucked in the garden. Is he just cracked or crack in two? Would he make a toad house?

    1. Hi Sandy....Thanks. Turtle is just cracked along the front of the bottom shell. I've been thinking of various fixes, but I am absolutely in love with the idea of his becoming a toad house!
