And for something a little different…

My posts have been dominated by Project3650 these days and it would be easy to think that getting rid of stuff is all I do, but I assure you that there is much more. For instance, I am still working in the pottery studio. Here is a sampling of some of the hand-built and wheel-thrown pieces I’ve been making. These items are staying, for now.

Some of my favorite pieces created at the Pottery Lab, run by the City of Boulder Parks and Recreation Department.

An embossed porcelain travel mug, a closed form teapot, and a rectangular casserole, all hand-built out of porcelain.

It was the last day to do wet work and I had several pounds of B-Mix to use or lose. I made this fold bowl and glazed in in Arvada Blue.

It turned out so yummy except for a small flaw where someone else’s piece was touching it in the kiln. Grrr.

  1. WHAT!!!
    What do I get out of this post……bah- Unsubscribe!
    Only joking, Imagine when all the plates and bowls that we would have had were handmade, and imperfection would have been the norm. I love imperfections, I dislike that I do not have a plate, cup, bowl that is unique. I remember chipping a mug, which was still usable but was suddenly my favorite. Matt telling me I had to chuck it out as the chip would get germs in. Loved that mug because the imperfection gave me something to identify it with, and them I had a timeline of the mugs history. Bugger Germs- what doesn’t kill me makes me stronger right?
