Busy

Things in the studio are getting busy.  I had been worrying that I didn’t have a lot going on this spring- no big retail shows, only a few gallery shows- so I sent out some emails to galleries I enjoy working with.  The response was huge.  I am now feeling a little like I’ve got too much to do!

These large slab vases I’m working on have gotten a great response so far!  I hope they turn out!!

In my last firing back in October I had about 60-70 plates.  They were almost all sold or off to galleries within the first week!  Time to increase my prices!  I’ve had a bunch of requests for plates, so I’m making even more for this firing.  Above is 18 salad plates made a couple days ago.

Trimming is messy!  This morning despite being under the weather I did get those plates trimmed.

You can never make too many mugs, so I’m also plugging away at that.  31 mugs made yesterday.

Meanwhile, my husband John has been working on improving our house!  We now have filtered water.

And he took down the pesky walnut trees beside our house.  Every year they drop walnuts on the roof (BOOM!), and because of the walnut toxin juglone, we are unable to grow anything near the house.  No more!  The walnuts are down and soon to be milled into boards.

Thanks for reading.
