Happy Birthday!

Finally! I brought some pieces home glazed and ready. My mom chose which one she wanted for her birthday. Happy Birthday, Mom! 

More to come soon.

Ok. I have totally slacked. Life has been a whirlwind of crazy and busy with a few bouts of lazy (which I think are a little earned). But no excuse!

My class at the pottery studio is now over, sadly, and I am now attending the open studio regularly. I am still slowly learning and I want to eventually recap what I learned during the class.

It is so great to be able to meet new people while you all are on a mission to enrich your lives. Each person that was in my class and that I meet in the open studio are all so different from me and the thing that bonds us together is our love for the craft. And everyone was always so encouraging! I found that I was taking forever to throw one piece because I was either watching other people at work or talking. Well that and I really am super slow. Perfectionism and ADD do not really mesh well....

Pictures soon of some of my glazed pieces. I am so excited to see all of them and how they turned out!

Tools of the trade

I love tools. I really do. That is the collector side of me speaking. My obsession with tools could get dangerous to our budget.
