Thursday Things

These are some way-to-small testers.  I only painted these five; as I was working I realized that they are way-too-small to really work designs in detail!  

I have a bunch more that are bisque fired (Of course they are!) so they can't be recycled.  They would make nice teabag holders or perhaps salt dishes.  

We'll see, grasshopper........

The weather is definitely changing.  I had to close my bedroom windows last night.  Next thing you know I will be getting out my duvet.   

We are expecting several days of rain.  Although every little bit helps we could use some steady showers.

Toes crossed that we don't have any frost for a while!

Enjoy the coming weekend.....there might be a rabbit lurking around here.

As always, thanks for stoping by..............*s*

More Stuff

Here are some small spoon rest I did as design tests.  I used to make little dishes, but got frustrated with having to trim them by hand so I have been making them out of slabs formed over curved forms.  I used a large measuring set ,which I found in a kitchen outlet shop, for these.  (Kitchen suppliers are one of my favorite places to find studio stuff!)

I am making a valiant attempt at sorting my glazes.  I want samples I can reference easily, small enough to keep on a shelf yet not get lost.  There were two small buckets with question marks.  I've come up with a coding system for the tests and am using the same system on the buckets!

That was a belated ray of light!  I don't know why I have never thought of doing this before.  You are never too old to learn new tricks!

We are having strange weather today.  Hot and humid, after two nights of needing blankets on the bed! It feels like the barometer has dropped....hurricane weather!  We may be getting the edge of one, possibly with rain.  I'll believe it when I see it!

Enjoy the week ahead.

As  always, thanks for stopping by.................*s*
