These small bowls with pour spouts are being loaded into the kiln for their first of 2 firings tonight! Their handles have a wheat impressed pattern. Along with several other bowls, their destination is Witby, Ontario!
I was in the mood for making spoons last week. These guys just need to be tidied up with a damp sponge, then popped into the kiln. I can't wait to see how the glazes will show off the impressions.
I made some progress on dinner sets today. I'm working towards 4 sets of 4 place settings, to be displayed at market. A set in the blue leaf, one in yellow, one in black and one in the green beach with the birds. Also I'm working on an 8 setting set in green and a set in yellow for two clients. I am anxious to see them all stacked and ready!
Just last night we watched David Suzuki's documentary on the Coyote and Coywolf. And this morning for the first time we saw this one
I'm on my way to load the kiln with more yellow and a few green pieces with the beach pattern. They are destined for the PEI Company Store in Charlottetown. Hopefully everything turns out and I can pack it all Tuesday morning. Then, a drive into town with the lot and a few of the new pieces to show Gail. I hope she likes them!
Here is the popular 8" square wheat tray in Buttercup Yellow. I love this glaze. I would describe the glaze as semi-matt with a buttery feel, fat as opposed to thin clear watery. Do only potters talk like this?
New platters and bowls with handles will be set up in my display at the Charlottetown Farmers Market this week!
