As we are making pots on the farm there are days that we don't see but maybe a car or two that travels our driveway to take a look and see at our work.
Maybe this is the calm before the storm.
The weather is calling for a whopping mess of rain for Monday and Tuesday.
I am sure that it will rain since we have lined up having a new roof put on the house.
In fact my sister has done the same thing and when 2 people in my family plan anything, known or unknown to one another, you can count on a weather event.
Family reunions can bring massive rain storms our way.
I have proof.
He has already made 40 mugs, 12 tumblers, and when I left just now he was turning out at least 30 juice, or wine after work, cups.
I am working on an order of batter bowls for a customer, then for me, it is sugar jars, creamers, small crocks.
We both have our list and we are sticking to them.
I know how hard it can be to make that list and then follow it. I tried so hard to move off the wheel and over to tiles yesterday but the logistics of the next kiln load won out.
I need to get my wheel pots made before I roll out more tiles.
Those small batter bowls are good for many things that are not batter. I use mine to make salad dressing, marinade, dips, gravy, ( Mark would say I am not telling the truth since I am not big on gravy, but if and when I make gravy this bowl works great..)
For dips I like to use the spouted area to place a spoon. It snugs up really well in that spot and does not try to fall out or under the dip. Useful.
Honey pots are coming up next on my list.
