I had a great day yesterday. Actually, it was a great few days. We had a great weekend with the kids, a nice little BBQ feast on Saturday to celebrate with a few friends and we even made it through about half of “Bolt” yesterday evening. For Javi, who is terrified of movies, half of the movie is some major progress. Of course, the movie started out much scarier than we thought it would so he didn’t exactly get to ease into it. Hopefully it wasn’t so bad that he’ll avoid going to the theater again. I doubt it since he hasn’t stopped talking about the half of the movie that he did see. It’s almost like he enjoyed it.
Back to pots….
I had a good day in the studio today. Finished up a few things that I didn’t get to do over the weekend and I threw a bunch of squared serving bowls. I’m going to try and head in shortly to make a few more things but I think I may need to catch up on some sleep so it may not happen.
Here are a few recent pics….
These are the squared vases that I made the other day. Waxed, slipped and ready to dry out for a bisque.
This is a little squared bowl. I think it was about 3lbs of clay. I like the little cut away foot. I like it better than the footed bowls below…
I made this before the one up above. As I said…I think that I like other cut foot better. I think it looks more stable and solid although, we’ll see once all is glazed and done….I”m still playing around with this “new to me” form. I do like how they’ll relate to the smaller bowls that I made at the end of the last cycle. Perhaps the small ones need feet as well.
I made 8 of these 5lb bowls today. A mix of taller like these and lower, wider ones. They’ll all have cut feet and the incised slip like the first bowl.
Tomorrow should be another good day in the studio….hopefully I’ll have some pics at some point tomorrow to prove it.
