a few things going on...

I tell the wife "I cannot believe how well things are going in the studio"...almost like I am suspicious of my own good work?
If you are having a busy month, it is good if the creative juices are flowing, right?
This is a groovy teapot....

I wanted to hold these bowls, give you a perspective, but I don't know if you get the me, the big one is BIG...for me...I really love that glaze and that style bowl, it is is one of a couple different patterns I repeat over and over....(whereas the rest:  I am winging it?   experimenting????).....have an awesome weekend!

. . . and Gary,

Oh, My! Such a graceful pot, with the jaunty little curl---like if a Kewpie doll worked at Dairy Queen.

And that pitcher over beside on the table---I ever think of that fluty-lip shape as "ewer," for I love the old-fashioned feel of the lines. The green of the bowls is my favorite color, I think.

Though I'm in a Pastel Stage of my life, those greens-in-smoke are absolutely the most addictive, soothing shades, and I can just feel the smooth satin lip-feel of the smaller bowls. (Mine for coffee).

I always enjoy looking in on all your art---I can see your wit and your thoughtful process in every piece.

Hope your Summer has been as cool as ours---unseasonal and very welcome.

Love those big jugs! I have never had the confidence to dint my a big slash. The nest of bowls is a great idea... sell 4 small and 1 large all at once. Don't moz the good work by questioning it.

I love the groovy teapot!! I went to your Etsy shop to see if there was a pic of the finished piece. It would be the perfect gift for a friend who is turning 50. Actually, I have several friends who are turning 50, one of whom ADORES hot beverages in gigundo mugs! This may be the year for All Rith All the Way!
