Some Pots

I finally got the camera out while I was at the studio.  For all the good it did.  But I have a couple pictures to share with you.  Nothing too exciting to report at this point.  I spent some time throwing lids for some little mountain jars that have been requested, as well as slipping and trimming a few things on Sunday afternoon.  Not a particularly long bit of throwing, but we had placed to go and Christmas Trees to decorate...

Here's a bowl I finished up on Sunday and is now ready to be bisqued:

Monday is normally a studio night for me as well, but I had a couple of related errands to run and so I really only had a small amount of time to spend in the studio when all was said and done.  But I did have time to put some mountains together.  Here's a shot of the vase (two sides) that I finished up last night:

So that guy is drying so it can be fired, and I've got a couple more of these in the works.  I may be back to working on some stuff tonight too.  I'm trying not to overwork myself, or get too stressed out, but I do have a few things that I'd like to get all finished up before Christmas and about the only thing I really have control of is how quickly I throw, trim, decorate, and dry the pots, so the sooner I can get that done the less I (should) have to worry about firing schedules.  But beggars can't be choosers, so we'll just wait and see what happens.

That's it for now.  I just finished up a tasty lunch made of Thanksgiving Day leftovers and it was delightful.  Special thanks to my mother, the only reader who left a note of thankfulness on my last post.  The rest of you readers must not be particularly grateful. 

That's it for now.
