Wow! It doesn't seem possible that we are on our sixteenth Sunday. Busy potters; busy days!
I threw five teapots yesterday. I don't throw a lot anymore; my wrists just can't take the stress. These are about two pounds each of terra cotta. The clay was so wet that I had to wait until today to throw lids and handles. The openings are all the same size. I have the measurement from when I threw them so fit will not be a problem.
I was inspired by looking at the strawberry pot I posted on Teapot Tuesday #3. It will be interesting to see where this goes!
It was warm enough to cook outside so we made pizza on the grill. While we love pizza at any time, it's so much tastier when made on the grill.
Above is a potato and caramelized onion with smoked mozzarella. Delicious!
The one above is one of Proge's inventions. Chopped eggplant in mango chutney with a little spicey lime chutney. We decided the mango was a little overpowering. Next time we'll add less with something else. It also has chicken sausage and provolone cheese. It is, however, very tasty.
We found the feather in the yard by the pond. I am taking it as an indicator of what happened to Moby Fish a few weeks ago. We think it's from either an owl or a hawk. Any opinions?
And last an example of why it's a bad idea to bake bread and then forget about it for a few hours. A little bigger and it could be a curling stone!
We are finally enjoy some early spring weather. It should be mid spring, but we are happy for sun and warmth. I actually put my laundry out on the line for the first time this year.
This post will be linked to Kim's Sunday Ceramics 16. I hope many people will link in. I have been enjoying Facebook lately, but I still enjoy blogs more. They feel so much more personal.
Enjoy the beautiful day. As always, thanks for stopping by.........*s*
