Pulling a Fitch

After watching Doug make several jugs while he was here it's only fitting that I felt the need to have a go at a few.  Doug makes it all look easy and it's really fun to watch him make a big jug all in one go by using the weedburner to speed things along.

I made these two today and they seem okay for the most part.  They are about 11" tall and rounder than most pitchers I usually make.  I used the burner and got them this far.

I'm going to let them rest over night before coating them in slip.

I haven't really felt like blogging too much to tell you the truth.  After having Doug and Hannah here for so long it's not very fulfilling to be here in the virtual world. " There's nothing like the real thing baby."

I'm sure I'll get back in the swing of it as time goes on.  I'm struggling with being a bit down and I feel like one of the best things I can do is practice being in the present moment.  Maybe I can blog about that.  Well, we'll see.  For now it's back outside for some time w. Karma and then off to the Gallery Crawl in town.

Cheers everyone!

Morning Tea with Lisa Hammond

I'm having my tea in this mug made by Lisa Hammond. Soda glazed stoneware.  If I could go work with Lisa for 6 months I'd be in heaven.

Lisa's new website is still under construction but you can visit it HERE.

I'm heading up to Allentown, Pa on Friday to teach a workshop over the weekend.  I'll be spending the rest of this week getting ready for that so little or no potting.  I'll be catching up on my blog reading though and hopefully getting in a post or two.

Thanks for all the comments on the hats. That was fun.
