change of pace...

My work is all about throwing pots on the wheel, like bowls, mugs, etc, but sometimes I do some sculpting--I just LOVE sitting there with the music and the quiet meditation of making a piggy or cow, etc….and you can see right away what it is going to look like! In progress below….

one frog or another...

I wasn't the first or the last person to put a frog on a pot, but they are ALWAYS a good idea.  Like I said, I am readying entries to a show of exquisite little pots, and these 2 might be candidates...

didn't realize beagles loved zucchini…..gluten-free pizza and zucchini bread

Like I said the other day, we were over at Amy's farmlet the other day and she loads us down with things like zucchini and broccoli.  I buy and eat so much broccoli all year long, do you have any idea how tasty fresh picked, local broccoli tastes??? YUM.  Anyway, the fridge was full but being quickly emptied out as we eat this lovely stuff….yesterday, 2 loaves GF zucchini bread (made with walnuts not choco chips) and GF broccoli pizza, mmmmmm….
and whoa! Who knew, little beagles love zucchini…well, she eats nearly everything, I guess….

small, but maybe a big deal...

As I mentioned yesterday, I am entering a cup competition now and a competition in a show this fall for very small and exquisite items.  I can definitely try to do that! This was my first idea for an entry.  I will be making more….

putting on your A game

I have entered a few competitions in my career. I am entering 2 this late summer, including a cup competition today.  These are my 5 entries.  The fun thing about these, whether you win a spot in the exhibit or further, win a prize, is that you rise to the challenge, making a bunch of awesome work, maybe with new ideas along the way.  In the case of this show, the above mug was a new idea, the dragons below too…SO, win or lose in the show, I have already won big time, frankly :)
