getting back in the groove

even though i have been anxious to get back to work after the trip to new hampshire, it seems to have been a struggle to get into the studio.  the mundane stuff like unpacking and laundry seemed to take up an inordinate amount of time.  i did manage to get a few mugs finished.  i am working out a new way of using my swirly stamp... sort of the same style as the last oval bakers that i made.

unfortunately i had three crack during the stamping process... my own fault for leaving them uncovered overnight.
jeff is still working in the studio tonight, washing ash to make ash glaze... i don't think i have the patience for the work (or the mess) involved in that, but i do like the results!

  1. Love the mugs. Welcome back. I think I'd rather wash ash than clothes too. :-)
