Some finished work... (finally?)
I've been making lots of stuff in the studio but I haven't shown anything. Also I have forgotten to pick it up AND I was having trouble with glazing on the dark brown clay that I love so much. Here are three of the seven things I brought home with me this week. One of them is another handle-less coffee mug.
The glazes aren't so exciting because I am working on the form more than the glazing. I've got a few bowls of varying sizes and one other small cup. Two tall narrow cups and one tall narrow vase are in the bisque fire this week so I will glaze them next time I go in. I made a third tall narrow cup this week after much struggling with the clay - I felt like goldilocks in there (this clay is tooooo soft, this clay is tooooo hard).
I'm excited because I'm really starting to build up inventory. In July I will have lots of small bowls and cups to sell at the conference. Yay!
