In the Works

I've been a bit productive the past couple of days. It feels good! :)

I am trying a new clay body. It's called B mix 5 and is a lot like porcelain without being as fussy. It feels pretty good too, like buttuh! I made some teacups and mugs and used porcelain slip to decorate them.

I also got brave and threw a pitcher. I have trouble throwing more than 2 pounds of clay so I was proud to pull it off at least half way decent.

And here are some bowls on my regular stoneware clay body.

Can't wait to get these and more bisque fired so I can glaze them. I'll be excited to see how my glazes turn out on this clay body.

Blog Love!

Checked my email this morning to find I had an Etsy order from the lurvely Lorelei Eutro! I've loved her jewelry and read her blog for a long time now, so finding she had gotten something I made gave my tummy a happy. :) And then she blogged it, which gave my tummy a bigger happy, woo!
She got these two mugs:

You should check out her Etsy, she makes the loveliest things. If I get the promotion at work I applied for, I'm totally getting something from her (finally!). Something in the arena of this maybe:

Welcome to my new blog! I think I finally have everything set up here. I'll get things rolling by posting some of my functional work. If you've drifted over from my old blog at , hello again! I've missed you! As for everyone else, grab a cup of tea and lets get acquainted!
.....I'm such a dork. :9

This bowl has sold at a festival, but I will be making more soon.

These two mugs, and this bowl have also sold.
