This is another oldie! In addition to glazing all the flotsam in my studio. I have been going through boxes of pots I saved for one reason or another
This is from a Walter Ostrum workshop I did at Wesleyan Potters in Middletown, Conn. According to my notes (Yes, I am that compulsive that I have notebooks going back to forever) We were throwing and altering ring forms. I obviously made an oval. The raises 'S' is formed from a coil on the back. This was the first time I used oak leaves for decoration, which is odd because I live in an oak forest.
I've made other press forms since then (almost 20 years ago). Because they are bisqued clay I don't worry about needing a release of any sort.
Our named day lilies have begun to bloom. We were happily surprised to see these, as we thought they would need a few more days to pop!
We made pizza on the grill last night as a belated Fourth of July celebration. No, no pictures; it was eaten too quickly! I made a small loaf of bread from leftover dough which I baked on the grill. It had a nice woody undertone to it.
The weather is in one of its mutable states. Hot today, hotter tomorrow....a day for sitting under umbrellas with the beverage of choice and swims as needed.
Enjoy the day. As always, thanks for stopping by............*s*
