Vases and a teapot

Lately I have had a number of surprise orders from new gift shops so I had cleaned out my existing inventory and need more, especially smaller (under $35) items.  So I have been in the studio making brie bakers, berry bowls, yarn bowls, earring holders, egg separators, french butter dishes, bowls, pedestals, cupcake holders (for Mountain view gift shop), etc.  Today I decided that I really needed to feed my creative soul and made a few decorative items.  I focused on simple vase forms with texture and a teapot.  I took my time and even had to redo the lid, but in the end I was happy with how it turned out.  I would have made more items but had an appointment at 1 that ended my day in the studio.  Now it is hot out there. 

The Earth and Fire Festival in Kings Mountain will be ending on July 27th, so if you haven't been by to see all the beautiful pottery, there is still time.

Thank you Julie. Now comes the nerve wracking part where I hope the glaze comes out well.
