It's busy around here. I've got 50 little pear jars to clean up today. I'm firing a bisque load of pots, including a few plates that will finish up a special order for awards for the Ellerbe Springs Marathon. Levi threw the bowls for the order before he left for a two-month visit to Peru Tuesday. I'll finish glazing bowls for the marathon today. I've got two sinks to create for a hotel in Switzerland. I'm attending the North Carolina Potters' Conference this weekend in Asheboro. And there's a publicity meeting tonight for the Seagrove Area Potters Association. Oh, yeah, I've got to go get a load of wood from a pallet recycler sometime soon.
Here's a few pictures, followed by a couple of movies of me making one of the jars:
|These are some of the jars I've been making - thrown in one|
piece. The tops are cut off later.
|Here they are with the tops cut off.|
|And here's one that's finished.|
|Cooling in the kiln.|
|A stack of saucers for the jars. For some reason,|
I felt very satisfied holding this stack of tiny
plates for the jars after spending several days
getting ready them ready to fire in the kiln.
