I worked on some more new stripey things today and it was so fun 🔥. Tonight is my final firing before I head to Bellevue on Thurs at 5am! It’s kind of frustrating that I always have new ideas that come to me the day before a show, when it’s already too late. I guess my creativity gets a belated jolt from the pressure of a show, but it’s usually too late. Nevertheless, I will be inspired with new ideas to try when I get back to the studio next week! I am grateful to my faithful studio assistants Chloe and Sabrina, as well as my husband who is off for the summer and put in some glazing help yesterday and today. ❤️. While I’m a loner I do love having other people around the studio and the energy that they bring! I still miss my clay buddies from my old Seattle studio so much ❤️❤️❤️ #ceramics #pottery #glazingday (at Twisp, Washington)

Tummy tuck anyone? I’m measuring the tummies of these utensil jars to see how long to cut my stencil for glazing. The pattern has to match up and be sized to each jar. Each one’s belly is a lil’ different based on how many donuts they’ve had this morning 🍩🍩🍩 #ceramics #pottery #glazingday (at Twispworks)

I haven’t made any bowls in this “Irene” pattern for awhile! Time to change it up! This pattern is based on Gothic architecture elements, circa 1500 😊 #ceramics #pottery #glazingday #ceramicbowl #handmadebowl #saladbowl #servingbowl #gothicstyle #gothicinfluence #gothicarchitecture (at Twispworks)

Glazing several customer orders today! I made a new pasta bowl size (cross between a bowl and a plate) for a local customer and I’m liking how they’re coming out, hoping I can get some into my regular rotation for sale! #ceramics #pottery #glazingday #chrysanthemum #pastabowl #handmadeplate #handmadebowl (at Twispworks)

This took me all day to glaze, using a combination of custom stencils, wax and hand painting. I’m not sure it will look as pretty once it’s fired, we’ll have to see if I chose appealing glaze & underglaze colors. It’s headed into tonight’s kiln! I looove working on new designs, even though they take me so many hours to get the stencils to turn out right. It’s a little bit of math (especially designing for a curved surface) which is not my thing. But it’s so satisfying when the design comes out right in the end. Good luck in the kiln, little bowl 🤞🏼🍀🔥 #ceramics #pottery #potteryvideo #ceramicsvideo #potteryvideos #glazingvideo #glazingday #handmadebowl #howiamaco #underglaze #twispworks #methowmade (at Twispworks)
