Recent Pots

Some recent pots that were thrown, altered, slab built, carved, sgraffito through slip and wax resist.
Time to list some more on etsy.

Dinner Set

These plates are slab built using slump molds. They have a nice organic and uneven curve that gets highlighted even more after the firing.

My focus now is on completing orders that have spilled over from last year. All is quiet in the studio and after the rush of the holidays I can catch up on projects. This is a great time to enjoy the work without the stress of show deadlines. So my challenge is to keep the work flowing without the pressure of a deadline to get it done.

New Favorite Tool

I love my new tool-the monkey peeler. He brings a sense of humor to the studio and his own personality.
He is great for shaving away small amounts of clay. We shall see what other talents he has.
Getting back to work, forcing myself to sit at the wheel and focus. It feels good to see the table full of freshly thrown pots. Handles will get added tomorrow.
