This Saturday! Come celebrate fall, art, clear skies and an end to (much of) the construction at Twispworks! I’ll be at the Farmer’s Market 9am-noon and here at my studio from 1-5! #twisp #twispwa #methowvalley #methowmade

I’m pretty happy with how this new bowl came out! There are a few improvements I’ll make for next time but it’s a good start! Thanks for all the fun comments on the video I posted before it was fired! It’s so energizing to have the vague color visions of my brain actually get to escape and be realized in the kiln 🔥. Fire brings life, does that mean I’m related to the mother of dragons? 🐉 I wish! 😂 Happy Sunday everyone 🔥🔥🔥 #borninfire #ceramics #pottery #howiamaco #underglaze #graphicclay #handmadebowl #motherofdragons #khaleesi #methowmade (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)

Closeup shot > A new plate idea I’m testing out. What do you think? The center is a shiny green, and the outside rim is painted in a matte finish. I’ll be testing variations on this theme in the next month to see what feels right. This was a spin-off from the Moroccan mugs that were pictured a few posts back! Take a look. #ceramics #pottery #handmadeplates #handmadedinnerware #methowmade (at Twispworks)

More large cake stands are in the works… my favorite part is smoothing the top after I pop it off the plaster bat (see second photo) If you get it at just the right time, it’s like smoothing chocolate icing 😋🍫🍩 #claytherapy #cakestand #cakeplate #pottery #ceramics #shimpo #brentwheel #whisperwheel #potterystudio #twispworks #methowmade (at Twispworks)

Hubs and I have been working on some new improvements to the studio… including some behind-the-scenes things (plumbing adjustments, pugmill area shelving, kiln tweaks) and some visible improvements (better display lighting here we come!) This new black hutch was aquired from the lovely gals of Valley Goods after their seasonal pop-up shop closed. I’ll now be back in the studio regular winter hours (11-4 Mon-Fri) so please stop by and say hello and give me display advice!! #potterslife #potterystudio #potteryshop #twispworks #twispwa #methowmade (at Twispworks)

I just pulled this set out of the kiln for a customer… love how it turned out, and just in time for Christmas! The green is so fitting for the season 🎄💚 To be put on the waiting list for custom orders, message me! Jan-March is a great time to order! #handmadedinnerware #handmadeplates #handmadebowls #ceramics #pottery #twispworks #methowmade #eatyourgreens (at Twispworks)
