Warming up the studio

 The snow, rain, highwinds and all things winter, except the cold air has given us a few days warm enough to get back on the wheel.
I have tiles made and loaded in the kiln for the first firing to combine with some other orders in order to put together a firing of electric glazed pot.
All we need now is enough time and energy to get it done.

 Cream and sugars were high on the list, as I was making the sugar jars I picked out a few to cut a spoon hole in the lids. I have mixed request from customers, some folks love a covered jar, no opening, while others love a hole to place a spoon inside.
I take orders for both.Mark made the creamers this round. We had so many creamers last year that we just about stopped making them. Then a couple comes in and buys most of them as gifts. After that it was one here and one there until the next thing you know, no creamers. Back on the list.
Teacups, with or without handles, shaving mugs are all in the mix as well.

I hope you are all well, safe and warm.

Aren't these warmer, sunshiny days lovely? Looking forward to seeing what comes out of the kiln.

Good looking sugars/creamers. They do make good gifts.

We rarely sell sugars & creamers as set, then we always end up with a mismatched group and someone comes in looking for a set. Never fails!

I do sets and singles. I have found people sometimes want sets and sometimes not. I figure whatever makes them happy.
