These mice had chewed a hole in a big cheese-ball, and hopped out of Dwight's kiln:)

That's all for today folks, uploading pix is part magic and part rocket science at our house. So we'll take what we get:)

Observation: I can either spend my days in the studio, which yields a bundle of objects at the end of the week, but means I scramble and scratch stuff for dinners, laundry piles up, and house is in a state of insane mess.
I can stay out of studio which means I cook decent dinners and maybe freeze and can some summer goodies BUT laundry still piles up, the house is in a state of insane mess, AND I have no work to show at the end of the week...

Cups cups cups

My favorite format to work with. I always used to say that I can't stand doing the same thing over and over and that's why it is so hard for me to be a studio potter...
Well whatayaknow... I keep making these over and over. I guess the fact that I don't weigh my clay and draw directly on the cups give me the sense of freedom, uncertainty and openendedness that I need...
Abstract doodles.
Spring blooms.
Love the surfaces and colors of these two on the bottom. Unfortunately the glaze bubbled :(
Maybe re-firing will take care of that. It'll "take care" of the surfaces too though.

Twisting it all around

This is all that I was able to upload today.

Getting ready to fire a small salt kiln at Dwight Holland's on Saturday. Can't wait!

Play time

The other day I decided to play around a bit with about half a bag of clay - and that's what happened:) I'm not much of a "faceter", so this is a new territory. Something new to play with.
