After a busy admin
morning working on a web site I headed up the hill to chase down some plastic and managed to finish my cups and plates that I'm making for the Spruce Pine Montessori School
. Even though our kids are in public school now I wanted to help out Mary Wray's class with their literary tea. So I made these pots for this years new students. I had wanted to get them done earlier in the school year, but hopefully they will be painting them next week and I can fire them and have them back in time for Faulkner, Agee, or Yeats, or...
before and after the slip n spin n comb!
Can anyone tell that I'm using Stan Andersen's red earthenware!?!? (Look out ,Ron
) It does look a lot like my red dirt stoneware, but so much smoother. Because of its ultra smoothness (compared to my gritty dirt clay) I was thinking the whole time about this being a transition to some porcelain that I plan to unveil for the holiday online sale. I just hope I can get to spinning that soon! Meanwhile it's on to the stoneware and finishing up my making list for the upcoming shared wood firing up the road at Courtney's.
