Just out of the kiln

Some of the pots from yesterdays unloading.


Tomorrow, September 1, is the Gallery Crawl in uptown Shelby.  My work is featured at Two Doors Down, 12 Warren Street.  I also have work at ETC Gift shop in the Arts Council and at Buffalo Creek Gallery, also on Warren St.  I hope the locals will come out and support the arts and our local businesses.

Beginning to End. Goat Portrait

Shot this video yesterday. I really feel like the drawings are beginning to come into their own.  After about 8 cups I really began to loosen up and get some nice action in the lines and expressions.


Of course I want to make sure that I'm making good forms right from the start.  I take a lot of pride in my mugs.  With this last batch I increased the size just a tiny bit and as always gave extra attention to making a comfortable, accessible handle.

I'm getting a nice full load in the bisque kiln.  I'll finish up a few more cups today and move on to the bigger serving dishes.



The porch should be finished by the end of the week if not sooner.  I had a pretty productive weekend, mainly making bowls and mugs and such.   A few pots came out of the kiln.  Most of them had clothes line deco but I did have a few experiments like the bowl above.  I'm working out glazing ideas as I go.  This isn't my ideal solution, nor even my ideal palette.  I'm not quite sure how I'm going to approach this new imagery as far as glazing goes.
