Good morning

Good Morning! This morning I am feeding the baby and enjoying a cup of Black Magic coffee. The baby is self-feeding herself boiled egg yolk and whole wheat bread. A good wholesome breakfast for a 10 month old! Later today, I have a good friend coming over to join me in the clay studio. She has admired a creamer and sugar set that I made a while back, and so I told her to come over today and she could make one for herself. This will be the first time I've let someone into my new studio to work and I know we will have a good time! I will post some photos later, hopefully later today.

Big Coil Pot

I just finished my big, big coil planter. Well, I finished building and carving into it. Now it has to dry for a long time, then go into the kiln for the first firing. I can't wait to use color on it. This planter is for my pool patio and I will try to use some colors to make it match the decor. All this coil building has made me want to get an extruder, to make nice even coils. So much time is spent just smoothing and smoothing..... But I am looking forward to doing another one. I want to have a pair of these. Also a good friend of mine has already mentioned the idea of me doing some for their new house. That is exciting! It is so good to be back in clay.
