ON MY WHEEL
I’ve been throwing up a storm this past week, with about a 50/50 satisfaction rate, which is about par for the course. Unless I’m really really happy with the finished pot, it goes into the reclaim bucket. My mug handles are definitely getting better — they should be with all the practice!
I’m running a full bisque kiln this morning and have ordered a few new glazes. Hopefully by the end of this week they will have come in and I can get the newly bisqued pots glazed and into the kiln for the final step. Several have gift potential, so I’m anxious to get them finished.
ON MY NEEDLES
I’ve made a pact with myself that there will be NO NEW STARTS until I finish my current WIPs. That’s all I want to say about that, as several of these also have definite gift potential. 🤫 Anyone else who will be working down to the wire on holiday gifting?

This photo is so totally cute, so totally Sprout, I have no words…..
This little guy started out as pinch pot practice, then it grew on me and I added some coils and I just this second saw a funky face on it. Does anyone else see a face? Not sure I like what I’m seeing. Freaking me out a little to be honest.
This one slid in under the radar, for some reason, I have no notes on it at all, so I have no idea what it’s glazed with. Salt celadon, maybe?
I saw these on my latest trip to Hobby Lobby and picked up a couple on a whim, a pack of watercolor and one pack Bristol. Here’s a couple of things I’ve been playing at –
The top two are spray inks, the bottom left is watercolor and Pitt pen and the right is Pitt pen and Copic marker over watercolor.
By the way, I finally broke down and got a couple of Pitt pens and I love love love them! They’ve totally lived up to my expectations, why did I wait so long???
