Can you kill with one stone?
These are all various majolica mugs I have handbuilt at one time or another. The middle poppy mug is a black glaze the design is on white glaze. The unglazed mug is another experiment. I was drilling out a 'thing' in the cup and managed to go through the wall. The mend is with thick spooze paper clay. I will refire it before glazing.
I keep usable rejects because they remind me of What Not To Do! I also use them in the studio and outside because I continually misplace them in those locations. Currently two are somewhere in the garden. My highest count has been five!
These are the exteriors of two of the little dippers. I am also making some to bisque fire.
I know I said I wasn't going to make any new stuff until I got completely caught up with all the unglazed stuff hanging around my studio.
All I can say is that the best laid plans......etc.
I am finding myself stimulated and getting many ideas from old work. There are variations on ideas and new paths to explore. Staying busy is a good thing!
We are adding water to the pond and the pool over the next few days. It's been sunny, breezy and dry lately. It's great weather for drying clothes and clay, but it does make for faster water evaporations!
We keep changing and adding to the yard. If I ever get my camera shutter to behave I'll take some photos.
Enjoy summer while it's here; I'm not sure where it's been going!
As always, thanks for stopping by..............*s*
