Back in the studio. I have not thrown any pots in over a month. In January I started full force making pieces for my Spring shows. Once I started doing the shows, I realized that I really didn't need as much as I thought, so I have only been glazing pieces as needed.
Today I made a puzzle/joke pitcher and mugs. For the pitcher, the liquid is poured in the top and it runs down the handle into the bottom of the pitcher. The neck has holes in it. For the mug, the liquid is sucked through the hole in the top which has a hollow rim and the liquied comes through the handle into the rim. My biggest challenge was making hollow handles. I can't wait to see if they actually work the way they are supposed to.
This past weekend we went up to Asheville for a short vacation. I came back with some inspiration for some new pieces.. In the next few weeks/months I plan to do some experimenting.
