This is the bird teapot I started before I went up to NH last week. I wrapped it tightly in plastic and put it in a sealed plastic box. Ah Tupperware and all your kin, what did we do without you?
It is now at a perfect stage of leather hard to do finishing work. As soon as the studio warms up I'm going down to work on it. It's in the teens but blindingly sunny so with the heat on I should be able to go down in a hour or so. I never realize how much I need my studio until I have to be away from it.
I've enjoyed this one so much I think I'm going to do one in white earth......we'll see, grasshopper....
While in NH I went into TJMaxx to see if they had any boots. No boots, but these screaming pink shoes that will be perfect for working in the studio. The soles are thick enough without being clunky to provide some protection and cushioning against my cement floors! Pink is a great winter color. There is none of it in nature.....except for the flamingos that keep hanging around the shed!
For all of you who are celebrating (in one way or another) Australia Day. Here is a link to Neil Gaiman reading a poem he wrote and performed at the Sidney Opera House a few years ago! Happy Day to all.
Again I want to thank everyone for all the kind comments regarding my brother. We have arranged for twenty-four hour in home care until he can move in with one of his kids. He is doing as well as can be expected. The most important thing now is his comfort.
This post will also go over to Sunday Ceramics. Not many have posted yet....more please?!
Enjoy the day. As always, thanks for stopping by..............*s*
