New Glaze Load and Art of the Cup Invitational

Spent this week glazing.  I mixed up a large bucket of the Spring Green and the Stormy Blue.  I am happy with the shade of green.  I doubled the green and didn't test it first.  All the pieces in green turned out great.

Meanwhile the Stormy blue is different from what it was before but it's nice as well (new color shown on mug below,  the way it used to be is pictured on the Irish mugs shown below).  Now it's more matt and has less depth.  Not sure what happened.

More pieced shown on Facebook. HERE

Finally made some more Mom, Dad, Nana and Papa mugs.  I have started listing them in my Etsy shop.  These will make great gifts.
Last week I sent off this teapot and the Irish mugs to the Ogden Museum of Southern Art in New Orleans.  The pieces are for the Art of the Cup Invitational and the Teapot Exhibition.  The shows opening reception is September 4th and it runs until the beginning of December.  It was an honor to be asked.  This will be my first invitational.

If you follow me on Facebook you saw the other pieces I was considering for the show.  Some of the other pieces went Ciel for this months exhibition.

One of the shows I was excepted into this year was the Art in the Park in Blowing Rock, NC.  I will be there August 16th, September 6, and October 4th.  I will also be in Weaverville Art in Autumn on September 20th and the CCM Pottery Festival at the Barn on October 11th.  I was wait listed for the Carolina Designer Craftmen Fair at the end of November.
