Yesterday was Great! I stayed in my pajamas all day long and played! I did end up doing some house things like dishes and laundry but for the most I hung out, played on the computer, listed some items on Thistle Farm and ebay, I played on the Wii Fit and created these four butter dishes.
The one in the upper front left is an oak leaf and acorn butter dish using actual acorns and leaves that were then molded into plaster. I pushed the clay into the relief to form the leaves and the acorns. Behind that is a conversation block that I have been making. As fast as I make them they sell. You can group them or use them individually. Each block has a different pattern on it and saying. This one happens to say "Dream".
Today was a busy day as usual. I worked at our pottery studio (Roberson Museum) this morning from 9:30-12:30 and then stayed until 1:30 to glaze a bunch of pieces that I fired in my kiln this weekend. It is so much fun to be able to take a lump of clay and mold in into an object that is functional. It is also satisfying to use a piece of your own pottery to either eat from or cook in. I guess it is the sense of pride I take in all my pieces. Sure there are some that I don't mind getting rid of but I know the person that they go to will appreciate the time it takes to create it...at least I hope!!
On that note for all of your creators of art...rock on!!
