  1. It's official. Surgery two weeks time to fix my collarbone. Gotta get some clay finished first.

      I'm sure it will be a big relief to get it fixed. All the best with your recovery : )

      Her secret is, she does ALL the carving and then, only then, does she pop the cutouts. That way she has the integrity of the clay and can do much more intricate work.

      I love pierced work so I thought you might like this tip. Not to take away from your vase which I think is absolutely gorgeous. :)

      Thanks Giselle, I like the cut it all, then remove it process. The clay has to be just the right hardness, Too soft and it doesn't cut, too hard and you end up scraping it out. Will try this technique on the next one tho'.

  7. Kiln is cooling, with first batch of tiles. Next job, to extrude the border and stamp the names into it....

      I wish I could grow things. :3 I even tried harvesting dandelion seeds to grow them for my buns, and I couldn't even get THEM to sprout! :D I'm hopeless...

      Don't over complicate things :D. Make a plant pot you want to own.

  15. My non-art brain is being pushed to the hilt. I have to design a 60+ tile mural for Scouts and Explorer Scouts to carve at an event in July. I wish my mouth would learn to stay shut.

      Yeah, I'm thinking the mural should be like a photo montage of the weekends activities - pole-lathing, blacksmithing, baking bread, basket-making, archery, jousting. Oh yea, and pottery!

  24. Today's Thursday. Must be pottery class. Yippee. Too cold (and damp) to pot in my greenhouse now.

  25. Kiln opening tomorrow. Will my thick sculptures be OK. Will the underglazes (first-timer) have worked out OK. Will I sleep tonight?
