Latest work. These were good sellers. Must make more!

Noodle bowls - drying

This is how I remember what I used!

Turned out nice, a bit dark perhaps.

Seniors Project

These are the little trays my seniors group made a few weeks ago.  I am excited to take them in today and show them the finished product.  They really enjoy the process.  We have quite an "owl" theme going on these days.

Gone to the birds!

I finally glazed and fired some of the birdhouses. I am trying some new (to me) Potter's Choice glazes and am very happy with the results.  I also used some underglazes ( cone 06) and covered with cone 6 clear with good results.  The little owl statues are all done with underglaze then clear over top.

trying another direction

One thing about haunting pottery sites on the internet is that one  finds so many ideas to try out.  I have always thought carving would be a fun thing to try, but I am not very artistic, so have to figure out how I can get a nice end result with very little talent!  The obvious answer is to copy others!  I do hope those whom I strive to emulate will consider it a compliment as I only try to copy the very best!

To give credit to the original rabbit artist go to Ron Philbeck 1 and see his wonderful pottery.
