This is a teapot (surprise!) surrounded by various shot glass experiments and Li'l Sebastion! The teapot is one I made a few weeks ago and then sort of forgot about over several days when it was too cold to work in my studio.
Clay Buddies on Facebook is doing a shot glass exchange at NCECA, which happens in two weeks or so in Providence. These are all handbuilt, but I am going to throw a bunch tomorrow. They are so easy to make that I am doing far more than I need for the exchange. They could easily hold a used teabag, safety pins or any little thing that tends to get lost. They will also make neat little test pots.
I am not generally good a large groups of people but since this one is in my back yard, as it were, I am going to give it a try. I'm driving up every day so I don't have to worry about the expense of a hotel room if I decide to opt out.
Li'l Sebastion is what I call all miniature horses after Parks and Recreation. This little guy is being glazed in wrought iron and moon light.....the names of the glazes, but it does sound whimsical doesn't it?
I lost the first week of March! We had six inches of snow at the beginning of the week and then on Thursday another eight inches. That's more than we have in an entire winter some years!
It's been in the high forties and fifties since Monday. It's almost hard to believe after last week. We've had doors open. Last night Proge did his first dinner on the grill.
This was last Friday morning. Picture card pretty, but cold! The only good thing was that there was no wind so the snow on the trees stayed for a while!
This is the same shot taken early yesterday morning. It was forty plus. The warm air and the cold snow made for a misty, woodland scene. I'm reminded of North Of The Wall in Game Of Thrones! If you look at the lower right those pink spots are the flamingoes poking up through the snow. It's not groundhogs here; it's flamingoes that predict spring!
Toes crossed that we are through the worst of it. Here's to sunny days ahead!
As always, thanks for stoping by...........*s*
