I did follow up the bottles with some bowls. These are
1 1/4 pound used for soup, stews, or ice cream. well, whatever you fancy. Oatmeal, cereal, a small salad.... serving or to eat out of.
They are indented on four side. I like the shape, although, I have trouble getting them all the same size. But hey- this is handmade stuff here if you want them all the same you can shop at____ or ________ or _________. But I will tell you everything taste better out of a handmade bowl. EVERYTHING!
Mark has been very happy with the rebuild on his wheel. He said, "It's like coming home." He and the wheel have had a few "moments" together and I think they are both very happy to be clicking along making pots together. It has been a week of rhythm - things just chugging along as they should. Isn't that what it is all about? The moments?
For grins, Mark has put in some corn over near the studio.
I planted some field peas, sunflowers and nasturtium to go with the corn. We don't know if we will get any corn to eat, but thought it would be fun to watch. Maybe next year we will plant it with eating in mind.
I am curious to see how the field peas do. Those might be tasty!
