On the table this week

I'm too sad to post the pictures of the glazed platters from last week, 3 out of 4 cracked in the firing. I've done everything possible with caution, convinced it is the clay body. Until I get it sorted out I'll be doing smaller pieces, like these!

This weeks wrap up--platters and more

Finished the first stage of painting on these five platters, so far everything looks good. It's a difficult time, before the bisque firing. That is usually when cracks will show up. I've been having difficulty with platters basically cracking in half! After all the time invested in the underglaze painting it is very painful when that happens!

Oval Bowls

On the work table this week, oval bowls. These are about 12" long. I am enjoying painting on this simple shape but these paintings take a long time! Oh well, this is what I said I wanted to do, to put more time in each piece. :)

Latches, gates and weathered wood

Spent a beautiful sunny morning at me mum's farm yesterday. It's hard to hold on to all the memories, but the old wood shows it all.

This weekend is our Mother's Day Weekend sale at Luna's studio. Her garden looks so beautiful! It is vibrant with green and flowers with happy birds singing and fluttering around. The wet spring has made the plants very happy! Hope to see you there!

Mister Snake

Mister Snake, I think he has lived here since we moved into this house 20 years ago. 
His new favorite spot is this basket. Just perfect to warm in the sun. 
Fine with me, Less copperheads!
