Let's Eat!

I haven't had much time for blogging, but I always make time to eat! I figured I was overdue at posting a food shot. Last night was lasagna primavera, served beautifully in a slip trailed bowl by Maureen Mills. Maureen is chair of the ceramics department at NH Institute of Art (where I learned to make pots AND met Mr. Brown). If you are looking for a good information about surface design, her book "Surface Design for Ceramics"would be an excellent addition to your library. Lark Books is the publisher.

It didn't dawn on me until after my second cup of coffee this morning, that we have a kiln to unload today! The big ginkgo vase is in there... keep your fingers crossed for us.

These came out of the kiln week before last. Aside from a sink with some crawling shino, we were very happy with the firing.

I hope everyone had a fabulous 4th of July weekend. My friends and family in New England had a very rainy Independence Day, and we had gorgeous blue skies and low humidity here in Seagrove, NC. We are now on day three of this great weather and I am taking advantage of it while it lasts.


  1. fingers are crossed for the kiln unloading.

  2. The mug and saucer must be indicative of more beautiful pottery. Yes, I love thinking of who made things when I use them too! can't wait to see the kiln unloading...and I'm also loving this low humidity and breezy weather!

  3. Sadly, I think last weeks weather is going away and we are heading into the 90's this week, ugh. How funny you didn't think of the kiln, I remember days when I thought I would burst waiting to unload a kiln!
