First I cut out a piece of newspaper with the shape of my form. Then I roll out slabs, cut the shapes out using my pattern, then stamp the slabs.
Both the teapots below are a new design. I think I like the taller one best but I think that they actually look good next to each other.

Today I started glazing but ran out of wax resist so was only able to do half the load. Luckily by tomorrow I should have some more thanks to Mike from Carolina Clay who is nice enough to deliver it to me tonight on his way home. Today I got all the special orders done and tomorrow I will just do enough other pieces to fill the kiln. In a few weeks I will start glazing for the Carolina Claymatters Festival. I need to kick it up a notch and finish more pieces.
For the last week I have been working on my newsletter. I suppose that I have started it a little early since I won't send it until the end of the month but had some time a decided to get it done. If you would like to receive my Fall and Spring Newsletters plus a few in between if there is special news, please sign up on the right hand side of the page. I promise, only a few per year. You will not receive them all the time like some. Sometimes there may even be a surprise for you.
