 A few recent pieces.

Here are some extras of the finished cupcake plates I had made for a commision. I enjoyed making them so think I will do some more.

This was another custom order for sets of napkin rings w/ initials. I had never made any before and thought they came out alright. I rolled slabs around cardboard tubes, cut them to the desired width and then made the little initial medallions separately. I used underglazes to highlight the textured parts. They are glazed with clear.

Busy, busy

I realized about two weeks ago that I needed 500 of my teeny tiny wobbly bowls to fulfull my current orders (this is my "bread & butter" product that I have been making since the economy took a nose dive)- so I worked basically day and night to get them made in time to ship on the 1st of December. This is the kiln loaded for the bisque fire- they are in stacks of 5+ and a few shelves deep.

Clayworks is having its annual Holiday Sale. We had a nice opening last night and I got to hang out with some clay buddies that I don't get to see all the time. Hopefully today the shoppers will be out in force so I won't have too many pieces to pack up!

I mentioned in my last post- moving into a much smaller home has been quite the adjustment. I am using my second bedroom as a studio, office, packing & shipping area and a craft/painting studio (eventually it will also have to serve as a photography studio for documenting my pieces. Wow, that's a lot of use for one small space!! So I am constantly shuffling things around and then losing track of items-it doesn't help that I am a consumate "pile maker". It was only this morning that I finally found my usb cable for my camera. I have been looking for it since I moved but now that I have it I will try to be better at posting and adding images.
