Dragonflies from the other side

Gorgeous yarn bowls with an ethereal quality - dragonflies from another dimension!  Aqua satin glaze gives yarn a smooth surface to glide and unwind against.  All edges are smooth and well coated with glaze. No places for yarn to catch!  $35 from Hurricane Pottery.

Fall, Autumn and Pumpkins

These stoneware pumpkins were such fun to make.  Some were formed from pinch pots and some were wheel thrown and then altered. You can find them listed at my etsy site or you can contact me for a custom order.

 The little ghosts are modified pinch pots, too. I don't have any of these listed, so you'll need to contact me, if you want to order one. Happy Fall!

I tend to let glazing intimidate me. I now realize that I must be bold, not worry about the results, just throw more and glaze more.  Right now I have a huge inventory of bisque, so I need to focus on glazing. If I stay at it, I should become more comfortable with it. Let's hope so.  Here's some results from a recent glaze firing. I felt empowered by these results.  I took good notes and will attempt to replicate them next firing!

Yarn Bowls!

Friday, December 30, 2011

Just want to say that it's been awesome this year for our Louisiana football teams.  UL won the New Orleans Bowl with a nail biting 4th quarter and a splendid field goal by Bret Baer. LSU is going to beat BAMA to clench the BCS championship! And the NO Saints have never been better.  Last game Drew Brees broke Dan Marino's record for most yards gained in pass completions (or however you say it) for a single season. His incredible receivers have played no small role in this, but ultimately it's been his ability to find his open players and put the ball into their hands that has won him this recognition. Couldn't be prouder to be from Louisiana right now!
