I love the warmth of the brown with Mark's quick design running around the pot.
Then there is the new blue ash glaze that can be very blue, but looks good with a bit of that same warm brown to calm the waters a bit.
And, Mark's designs just fit the spaces so well.
Then a ride out on the back roads to look at the trees as they start giving the green up to bits of color here and there.
I love fall and remind myself at how quick it can come and go.
Here is a nice bit of detail on the tea pot lid, just a few drops of glass to make it even better.
We have had great weather with little wind to speak of, it makes the pond reflections show up even better.
With a full moon out there it is time for me to take a look to see if it is at the tree tops yet.

We had a lot of rain on Saturday as Matthew made his way through our area, but nothing like what both of our kids and their family. Rain, that much rain when you live closer to the coast is some scary stuff, both kids lost power, one for close to 24 hours.
As a mother it was hard not to be there with all of them for this one.
The mushrooms were before the storm........
Then later it makes a great beer mug. This was Lee's favorite for coffee and Mark's dad Bob always kept 3 in the freezer for his beer.
Oh, I miss those two.
I was taking pictures of tiles for a customer.
This one I call, "Long Neck" He is all neck. I try not to have favorites but there are times. Then again, it is like I like them all as I am working on them. All different with different personalities. He looks like he's holding a secret for you, or a bit more wild child.
I don't plan this it is just the way they come out.
I hope you all weathered Matthew as well as possible.
I don't know about you, but I am ready for a boring week.

Not all is lost, but ##$#@##$%^&* there are days that I think I should be working behind the counter selling fries......
I wonder who would hire my tired old grey head.
Back to the drawing board on this one....
