Hello, again! I don't know what happened to the summer other than I seemed to have spent most of it working on the Troy Arts Alliance. I was so stressed out with it that I couldn't get myself into my studio.
Anyway, I'm very happy that Fall/Autumn is here and the air is cool and light with a hint of dried leaves in the air! The older I get, the more I love the month of October--in Ohio anyway!
This weekend found me in my studio again and I'm starting to throw again! Yeah! I've got some fun functional pieces that I want to make for the holidays. These include Santa & Snowman mugs, Chips 'N Salsa trays, funky soap dishes and maybe some casserole dishes with handles. I've set up an account on www.Etsy.com and need to get some inventory going so that I can start up my shop! This will be fun!
Also, I can't wait to try more Lotus Zen fountains. The next ones will look more like water lilies (pointed petals) and I'm thinking of using porcelain for the flower part. I'm hoping that the porcelain clay will make the flower look translucent.
Attached is a picture of one of my new mugs and a FRESH chips 'n salsa platter. I'm using my brown clay again and it smells so awesome!
