There were some good ones.
I thought I would toss them over here for those of you that don't, won't, never go there.
The one on the right has sold.
The one below has not, but the B&B in Seagrove likes to have one of our teapots to use for their guest. It is probably going over there to be used and enjoyed.
I tried taking a few pictures with my phone camera. The results were very blah. I went back to the camera. I kept one to show you a before and after. Mark probably used a bit more clay for this new one.
Teapots are on the list again for the next kiln load.
Yes, we didn't quit.
We have, mostly him, been reading about all the changes that have been made and are being made in our tiny world of ceramics. There will be some testing in the next few months.
And, your favorite glaze might just be on hold while we work this out.
I was looking at a bowl that we use in our kitchen while cooking lunch yesterday, I noticed how well the glaze look, melted, depth of color that the glaze had then.
Oh, yes, the good old days.
It made me remember how we had little doubt in what we were doing then, throw, glaze, fire. We were on a roll and didn't even know it.
We are enjoying a few days of snow here, along with some ice.
Snow is always better.
It is our hope it all melts on Sunday.
Stay safe, warm and dry.
