Here is a photo of the pieces I made today. I have been trying to make some pots for a gallery exhibit that I have been asked to participate in. The show is in Greensboro, in mid July. Later this week I will probably start throwing backstock for the fall shows. Next week I hope to start glazing for the exhibit and for the Great American Pottery Show.

Just got back from Las Vegas. This is a photo of my husband and I at the Venetian Grand Canal Shops. Visited Zion National Park as well as Hoover Dam. Had a great time. Today I got back to work and finished putting slip trail on pieces and loading the bisque load.

Tonight I went with my friend Lynda to the Mint Hill Arts Reception. I was so excited that I had received an honorable mention for my coffee pot. Today I didn't make anything, but I spent a good portion of the day working on our guilds blog. Then I decided to change my background on my blog. I would love to hear comments on whether or not it is a good change.

Been busy making pots this week. Today I made a teapot, covered jar, vase, 2 candy dishes and a chip and dip bowl. It doesn't sound like much but all but the vase had at least two parts and the teapot has 4. So, it took more detailing than usual. I have been in the mood to try new things this week. I can't wait to glaze some of these pieces. I have some new glazes I want to try out.

I finished these pieces this morning. There are very few small vases left in inventory, so experimented a bit. I really like the vase on the right, with it's angles. The second one from the left is supposed to be whimsical. The handles are hands and arms and it's supposed to look like its dancing.

The last glaze load came out last night. Here is a photo of two of the tall vases that came out. The piece on the right is supposed to mimic a calla lily. I have decided to keep these to put on small shelves on either side of my china hutch. I will be packing up the rest of my pieces today to get ready for the Piedmont Pottery Festival in Eden, NC this weekend.
