Here's what I have been up to...

I have been working on bowls this week. I enjoy throwing bowls, but I really dislike trimming them. It seems that I always lose one or two in the process. Whenever I think, maybe I can trim a little more off right there, I should set the bowl aside and come back to it later. I do enjoy the carving process and I have been playing a little more with breaking up the design with some bands.

The first glaze firing for 2014 happened this week. It was a good firing with lots of orders that were sanded, boxed, and shipped. It's great that so many pots were already sold, but it was a little sad not to get to spend some time with some of them.

This one was unspoken for, it will go in the Etsy shop.

This litter of pigs came out of the kiln and were shipped off to their new forever homes. 
I am not sure if they look excited or nervous!

  1. I like the band of non carved part, makes the carving stand out more
