A friend's grandmother passed away last week, so Saturday morning was spent in a church for the service. The choir was talented, and it *only* lasted an hour and a half and it meant a lot to her that we went (yeah, I dragged P with me) so it could have been worse. Still, I was quite glad to finally make it to the studio.
This weekend was the get-ready-for-school tax free weekend, and somehow they made it apply to stuff at the studio so I picked up more glaze and more clay. Yay for colors! I spend some time glazing, of course, and some time on the wheel. I still haven't decided if the 4 things I threw are worth keeping.
I escaped work tonight and headed over to the studio. Some progress was made. My fuschia vase is heading into the kiln today, so I should have it back on Friday.
Here's the progress of a couple of other things.
The birdies are a stamp, so don't be too terribly impressed there. I carved around the stamp, once it's dried I'll paint it before the bisque fire. We have a dipping glaze called 'rhubarb' that is a pinkish melon color. I may leave the birdies black and then use wax resist and dip in the rhubarb.
The red pot will probably be a give away - the white border isn't even and it'd drive me nuts if I paid too much attention to it.
I worked on trimming, and am done with two of the four from Saturday. I haven't decided if I'm keeping them yet, and I may add handles so they went back into the greenhouse to keep for the weekend. All tucked in:
I may have mentioned that we had a handbuilding class a while ago, and made baskets. Mine is probably going to end up crashing into a wall some day soon - I'm not terribly fond of it. It's been sitting on my shelf for ages while I debated with myself. I did have it bisque fired and there it sits. Whatcha think? Live or die?
Other progress made: Sophia has claimed the cherub chair.
Hope your week goes well!
