The kiln can be a humbling enemy, reminding any potter to slow down and pay attention. Pushing the limits of the clay too hard and too fast could backfire badly leaving a mess of damage and destruction in its wake.
Shown here is my humbling. Sugar Mamas, one of my most popular item (used to keep your brown sugar soft) exploded by the masses. Fortunately, only this shelf was affected and not the rest of the full kiln. By not assuring these items had dried thoroughly caused a huge explosion. Out of about 50, there were only 6 survivors.
But if your waiting for a sugar mama to help keep your brown sugar soft or to give as a gift don't worry I got right to it and made more.
The summer was fast and fun with such wonderful weather. We gardened a lot as usual, and we added bee's to our city homestead. Now winter is slowly inching in and pottery making is at its keeping me warm. Here are some pictures of the things I am working on. I have a few guild sales coming up and I will host an invitation home sale. |f you'd like to come please send me a note.
At the Art Walk this year I am showing my work at the Original's Coffee on Clark Street in Port Moody. Great Mexican food, fantastic Hot chocolate and wonderful artwork. Hope to see you on Sunday.
