I lost track of the time....rather days. I spent most of Sunday thinking it was Saturday. It wasn't until I was dropping pots off for our sale that I realized, or rather was informed, that it was Sunday.
That's what happens when you get busy as the proverbial bee.
I did a firing (one of the best I've ever had) which included the prototypes I've been working on, because I always have to complicate busy times by working on something new....it makes life fun.
I'm very pleased with the cupcake stand. I just have to figure out a better way to attach the legs. I think they need to be exactly the same moisture and pliability.
Speaking of feet I do hope that everyone will pop over to Gary's Blog and take a look at his take on feet!
Suddenly I am having problems uploading photos. This is a new one for me....I'm not sure what is going on, but it's difficult to talk about things that can't be seen.
Fifth time is the charm....finally got it to post.
I made this mug around a balloon. I was working with wet clay and wanted to get an idea into reality. It needs a couple of points opposite the handle for balance and stability, and the rim needs to be nicer.
With this I think I may have a solution to using a clear glaze over terra cotta. Generally I don't like them as they always cloud somewhere on the pot. This time I added a small amount of Mason 6131 Titanium to Spectrum Clear 700. Commercial glazes work on terra cotta greenware, but I will be experimenting with my studio glazes. That ought to keep me busy in the dark of winter.
We are having a gray day which will turn to rain later today and most of tomorrow. It's going to be lots of snow further north. I hope everyone will stay safe and think twice about traveling in bad weather.
We are doing two feasts this year. On The Day we are having dinner with friends next door. This is a gift, as the sale opens on Friday at 10:00 AM. I am working that day as we have had trouble getting people to work. I still question the wisdom of opening on Friday. I think we could open Saturday and use Small Business Saturday to our advantage......Friday evening could be a special grand opening.
It's time to go meet the day and go out into the world....which means going to the market. We are doing most of our shopping at a locally owned store. (three stores does make a chain) I did some careful comparisons and if I buy staples such as animal food and such from the big markets (Walmart is not the cheapest place around!) I don't spend more than a dollar over shopping at Stop & Shop ......aaaaannnnnnd....I don't feel like I need roller skates to get around the place!
Stay warm dry and safe to enjoy a most Happy Thanksgiving!
As always, thanks for stopping by.............*s*
