mug shot Monday: slice and dice....

I told you a day or 2 ago that a recurring dream of mine involves going back to high school, UGH.  Not a nightmare, but always happy to wake up an adult.  Another recurring dream of mine takes me back to our old neighborhood in New Hampshire where we lived at the end of a dead end road and to get anywhere had to go past our criminal meth-dealing neighbor...STRESSFUL.  In my dream a road has been opened up the other way, so we don't have to go past them, how about that?

I had not used my dark green glaze in a couple of years which came back to me when I did the spring cleaning:  it is awesome!  I call it 'gorgeous green' for a reason, above left.... I am also trying to make a certain shape mug with different facets, well, you see those explorations above and below.  Have an awesome Monday!

Those back to school dreams are troubling aren't they? Do you get the one about the locker not opening even when you know the combination?

Glad you told me it's green, cause I see black on my monitor. One of the problems with all this digital stuff, eh? Great shape!

The red one on the right is my favorite.

Michèle Hastings said...

I am with Lori on the red one!

Claudia from Idiot's Kitchen said... glazes last a long time if you don't use them or am I reading that wrong? Help out a non-potter with some glaze info. :)
