Today I unloaded the last batch before the Festival in the Park. This is a photo of my favorite pieces from this batch. This week has been busy getting ready for the upcoming shows. I had over one hundred new pieces since my last show that had to be photographed, priced and packed up.

Teapots & Oops

This week I have been more creative, but with that, I slow down and don't make as much. I spend alot of time just thinking about what to do next. The piece in the front middle was an accident, but I liked it. I was trying to make a teapot and when I trimmed the top, it collapsed. Tonight I am going to the Monocromatics reception at the Mint Hill Arts.

Apples & Pears

Recently I have started making my apples and pears again. For awhile I didn't have a red or yellow glaze. I have started making the apples in anticipation of the Brushy Mountain Apple Festival that I am going to have a booth on October 3rd. I like to serve my Waldorf Salad in the apple and a Pear & Walnut salad in the pear. Today I unloaded the glaze load and had alot of small gift items (brie bakers, berry bowls, gravy boats & pedestals) Earlier in the morning I made 2 extra large vases.

Today I took three pieces into Mint Hill Arts for the Monocromatics show that will be on exhibit in September. All three pieces are done in shades of blue, and this bowl is my favorite piece. I named it "Waterfall". The opening reception is Friday September 11th, from 7-9.

Yesterday, I added the slip trail to my latest batch and they should be dry enough to fire by Monday. I am going to work on some more show pieces the next few days. Lately I have been doing more small gift items and I need to be creative again.
