Remember to cover the clay at night that you have been drying outside all day......or it may rain and you will have mud again.
Can you see the puddles in the clay?
I was asked for some mugs that are smaller than what I generally make. They hold ten ounces. These are the first ones I made when I was considering handles.....and believe me, I spend a lot of time thinking about handles. The originals were too sharp on the edges. They wouldn't actually cut the hand but the possibility was there. Satanic mugs for Halloween!
Due to our continuing warm weather we are finally getting morning glories and moon flowers beyond the one or two blooms we've had. I love it when it stays warm enough for them to completely bloom out!
This was a particularly nice moon flower, starting to sag in the rain. For some reason wilting moon flowers always make me thing of drooping ballerinas......Swan Lake perhaps?
Autumn is showing up even with the warm weather. There has been enough rain for the swamp maples to show some wonderful color. I love the way they look like watercolor washes.
Mist and rain today, gentle but definitely putting a damper on doing much outside today. The colors really pop in the soft gray.
We have been watching The Hollow Crown on PBS, Great Performances. It's Richard II, Henry IV Parts One and Two, and HenryV, by the Bard of Avon himself. Beautifully acted and filmed, it's well worth watching.
Have an enjoyable Sunday. This post will also be over on Mud Colony. Take a look at clay around the world.
As always, thanks for stopping by..............*s*
