Too much Caffeine??

This is the finished teapot from yesterday. I think there was too much caffeine in that last batch of tea... the pot looks a little jittery.











I tried using a stretched out notebook spiral to carve away some of the smooth surfaces. Guess I need some more experimentation before I get this one down. I bet some of my glazes will break nicely on the rough surface though ... ?

Finishing pinch pots

Finished my decorating demo today. Tried some deeper carving to experiment.





This sign says it all for my students...

On again, off again...

Good thing I remembered my umbrella this morning. It was like this all day... about every 5 or 10 minutes the weather switched.

Welcome!

Glad to see you've decided to keep following my adventures in clay!
I will be working in the studio for at least a couple of hours each weekday during this summer school period. It helps when you have to wait for someone else to get off work to give you a ride...
Oh well, hopefully I'll have a scooter to ride in the next couple of days. It will beat walking - or hitch-hiking.
In any case... stand by for pictures of new work!
