Interesting things happen when you sort and clean. Yet another piece that was lost and then found on the back of a shelf that I now use for towels and pet blankets.
It's quite small; I think I would call it a cruet rather than a teapot.
It's thrown and altered in white earth with a white base glaze that I put on before I forgot about it. From the way the stains are going on, I'm guessing that it's a shiny glaze rather than matte. The mermaids and fish are done and outlined. Next I will wax them and lay down a sea blue/green wash. When that dries I will blend it to get rid of brush marks and put in various seaweeds and plants.
One of the hardest thing for me to do is to let each step dry before going on to the next. I usually work on something else to keep my hands off and my mind on something else!
I had my four month follow up with my doctor yesterday. I had not been paying very good attention to my diet so my Alc numbers had been climbing over the last year. I had agreed that if I did not lower it from 6.7 to 6.3 I would consider medication. It is now at 6.2! Needless to say I am very happy. Having something work is a great incentive to continue, especially in these days of the winter doldrums.
I have to give a huge thank you to Mariette at http://mariettesbacktobasics.blogspot.com for teaching me about palm sugar. I don't eat a lot of sugar, but when I do I want the real stuff. I can't eat artificial sweeteners as they give me migraine's. (So far Stevia seems to be okay.) So THANK YOU, MARIETTE!
As usual with the weather it has gone through another drastic change. It's now 45F. and sunny! My daffodils are up about three inches! I am going to clean up the deck a bit more now that the snow is gone!
As always, thanks for stopping by.............*s*
