Still working, but now the garage is COLD! I am trimming the colored clay pots and trying to find a way to trim the insides to see the color results. The trimmings are gorgeous!

    I have put some images up in my gallery ... I am not a great thrower for sure but I was pleased to learn a lot about throwing colored clay. It was fun.

    I made the mistake of not loading my bucket with warm water this morning...that first dip before throwing was a shocker!

Currently in Seville, Spain seeing fabulous tiles on every wall and around every corner! If you want your artwork to last forever, fire it on a tile!

Baking cookies today ... and they also get rolled and cut in slices just like my porcelain. Should have a trouble free firing.

    My firing produced a few damaged cookies that had to be eaten. Such a shame!

    Don't you love cookie casualties! ;) I make lebkuchen and chocolate dipped creams, both very fragile. I wouldn't want to serve a broken cookie now would I? ;)
