It's Been a Busy Week(s), Part I

Sorry to leave you with the massive cliffhanger (not Stallone's) with regard to my last firing.  But as I say so often, life happened.  I was especially non-ceramic last weekend, which was a three day weekend, on account of when you have a three day weekend it's important to spend it relaxing and lazing and reading and watching movies.  Especially when your wifey will be out of town for the following week, which means more pottery time then.  So we had a wonderful sort of lazy weekend.  Between, of course, backing our car into three-quarter-ton Silverado's, snowdrifts, and garage doors.  But that's another story for another time.  I will say that Krystal and I share blames in these incidents.  No, I will not share how they are divvied up.

In any case, the bisque firing (completed on Monday, January 10) came out just fine; everything was pink and quite bisquey.  Here's the top portion of said bisque load. 
Bisques!
While I didn't devote too much time to pottery last week/weekend I was able to sneak in a few hours here and there to take care of a few things.  Mostly trimming (bowls that I guess I threw Mon/Tues the 10/11?) and decorating some of my Arizonas.  The results of that work would be below.  Beyond "would," they are, in fact, completely below, and quite thrilled about it.  Enjoy!
One Arizona, trimmed, carved, and drying.
Two Arizona, trimmed, carved, and dried.  I really like the shape on this on, and the more prominent lip.
Some bowls, part of a special order.  Wanda: these bowls are for you!
Some spare bowls to go with the above order.  Because you never know what might happen between throwing and completion!
Serving bowl, also to go with the above order.
This one's a mystery bowl.  It's on my camera, but I don't seem to have this bowl anywhere in my studio.  Bizarre?
So that brings you up to speed on last week.  Stay tuned for Part II.
