Some things just take time

Remember these?

I finally got them finished!

I made them in January. They took forever to dry and get into the bisque kiln. Flat things take up a lot of real estate in the glaze firing and things that aren't orders are last on the list to get in the kiln.
My original thought was to glaze all of them in ash glaze. At the last minute, Jeff convinced me to do two in the green glaze. I am really glad I did because I am loving the contrast of the green with the un-glazed rim. The clay is STARworks East Fork.
Modeled after the Jeff's coaster design, these are a nice lunch plate size, about 8 1/2". Lets see if I can get the next round of them finished more quickly.

It's like riding a bicycle...

Our good friends Bonnie and David came to visit on Thursday afternoon. Bonnie was due for a pottery lesson and despite not having thrown on the wheel in long time she did an awesome job. As we were finishing up for the evening we spied this shadow on the wall...

Have no fear, it just a clay snake!

Bonnie gladly took it off our hands. He will now live in her garden.
