The Video

Holidays 2008

Good Day to all who may stop by my blog today.

We have had a blessed and safe holiday season. Lots of family meals together .... yumm yumm. I will try to remember to put my biscotti recipe on one of these pages. Good earthquake food too, since it keeps pretty well, and my variety has a lot of protein.

We fetched our pottery from the Stone's Throw Gallery in Kernville yesterday. A beautiful drive it is!!! Yet it takes us a full two hours ..... both directions of course. So we have some of our pastel pieces, some colanders, and some elephant foot mugs back in our possession. We get a little attached to some of our pieces. When you create these with your own hands, and glaze them with a lot of thought through the many layers, imagining what it might look like, (since with these glazes you don't know until it's fired), you are rather connected with the finished product.

We are thinking of putting some of it on e-bay or finding a closer shop or gallery.

Class info will be out this next week, I think. Probably the weeks of Jan. 12 and 26 will be open for a variety of classes including beginner, slab, beads, etc. Let me know what your interests are and I will put together a class.

I don't do just blue, just mostly blue.

See? Black cracker and dip trays.

See? Golden purse with that other
one which I can't see what color it is.

Mike did this with some glaze we got in Nashville.

Uh, see??? Um. Blue with cinnamon.

Finally, Not Blue again.
This is from the Golden Collection.

Open House Sat 12 to 4.

This tall cylinder could hold dry flowers.
It has no bottom.
(That's a mirror.)

Button bowl and pitcher in pastels.

Newest elephant mugs in purples and blues with
a small pitcher.

Tall vase in the waterfall colors.

The Wed. Bible Study Group Comes Over To Glaze and Watch It Snow.

These were from our glazing only class.
The participants chose their piece and glazed it.
Now we hope each of them picked up the right stuff.

This was the day it snowed.

Will we have snow next week?

Jan. Class Ideas

Nice colors on this cat.

Vase, jug and pitcher have just been unloaded from
the kiln. Always a surprise to see what turned out
the way I expected....the colors do some amazing
things under that much heat.

This of course is a duck in a pot.
Duck is stained, not glazed.

Freshly made coil pots and pinch pots from a Dec.
class, in their un-bisqued state.

We are doing one more week of classes, then we will take a break for the Family Wonderful Times of Christmas.

We are evaluating options for classes in Jan. and the scheduling for firings in the kiln and such. The classes in Jan. may be two weeks apart to manage the drying and firing times more efficiently.

If you have any special requests for new classes, this is a good time to send them to us.
We can put you on our e-mail list and you will get all the updates.

More Photos

Matt and Satin glazes most likely anyway.

Slab work by Matt.

Greens, blues, browns for the waterfall effect
which actually is dependent on so many things
coming together nicely. The shape of the bowl,
the layers and layers of different colors of glaze,
and even the placement in the kiln all have an effect
on the final look.

Pastel colors.


Kelsey, do you remember this?
