Friday the day that follows- hey- who took out Wednesday and Thursday?!

I have the door down on the big kiln  and the pots are all staring at me from behind the first stack of shelves.

I am no longer able to lift out the heavy shelves and Mark is off around and about today so I am waiting for him to come home and take out the shelves.
What a wimp you say.
Yes- I say.
I am too old to risk any more damage to my delicate southern self.

Now, I did get a load of tiles fired and I am working on backs for hanging tiles.



It is not as if I am not working, just waiting for the muscle to show.
He's home and now it is dark.
Guess what tomorrow is another day...
Today - time for a beer!

Hey Linda- they are all waiting on me!
I have been up to my ears in giraffe tiles- I hoipe to look at them at the end of the month.
It is busy/crazy here!

Tracey Broome said...

Delicate my ass! you are as tough as they come girl!! But I'm with you on the heavy lifting, I've done way too much damage in the past.
Those are some beautiful pots in the photos!!!

Hollis Engley said...

Hey there. The pots look great, and no doubt so do you ... the "delicate Southern self" notwithstanding. I'm with Tracey, "Delicate, my ass!"

What a great seasonal Orange and Blue! I'm going to be bugging you about this...

gz said...

Lovely orange-looks like you matched your inspiration!

@fetishghost-I wish your blog had a slightly different name. It doesn't get past the firewalls here.

hey thanks guys!
The jars are Mark's nice aren't they.
It is always good to step it up and do something new.
And Hollis and Tracey are you challenging my status as as sweet, delicate southern bell?!
Now hush your mouth....
:) !!

Gorgeous pots and scenery. Love the patterns on the jars.

Patricia Griffin said...

Beautiful!
Hey, save that back... I am giving myself the same advice. I got a shipment of new clay in yesterday and hefted it into clay-storage... I was fine after that, but then had to heft my 60? 70? pound dog into the truck (he would NOT jump up on his own) and, wow, I had an AHHH-HA moment when I said to myself: "That was stupid." How come I keep forgetting that I'm not a spring chicken???!!!!

Love the orange & blue pots - perfect for the fall season! You are so smart to get help with the heavy lifting. Bob & I both sure miss Luke being around. Youth & strength is the best!

Cindy Shake said...

Not only those yummy glaze colors but the plump and inviting shapes of your forms lend themselves to a beautiful Autumn! Those pieces really remind me of Fall pumpkins and gourds :o) HAPPY.

cookingwithgas said...

HI Girls- can we call ourselves girls anymore?
Coming from another women who has crossed 55 I like the term....
Thanks- these are fun shapes and the colors are exciting.
Happy fall!

Those lidded pots are so nice! Love the shape and the glaze turned out perfect.
