Conversations about pottery...and anywhere else it takes us.

Back at it
Two weeks away from clay and the skin on my hands has gone all wimpy. After a day of glazing they feel like sandpaper! I spent most of the day brushing on underglaze and wiping it off.
These porcelain tumblers will be glazed in my Temple white, while the mugs below will be nuka.
I thought I had brought all the mugs into the studio today but noticed when I was heading into the house that I missed a ware board and a half that was on a higher shelf next to bisque kiln. I am sort of relieved that I had more pots made than I thought I had. We have galleries needing work, a small show next month, along with the Celebration of Spring Studio Tour. I am on my own for the studio tour... Jeff received his invitation to go back to Korea in April. The dates coincide with the Celebration event this year. It seems we haven't been seeing much of each other lately! What's the old saying... absence makes the heart grow fonder? Jeff will be back from his three day teaching gig shortly and I plan to cook him dinner and we will have a relaxing evening with (hopefully) no work needing to be done.
