Tidbits

I've been able to get in the studio in small bits of time in the past couple of weeks- ususally in short stints of 1 to 2 hours at a time. The Circle of Eight has our fall sale here in four weeks, so I'm really trying to get enough work done to have decent representation at that show. It's funny, though, rather than making many of the forms of which I'm very familiar, I'm finding myself wanting to try to make new pieces (and doing just that). It's not that this is a completely bad idea, but I'm definitely not at my most efficient self while experimenting, and not sure if this is the best time.
Here are a few new smaller pitchers I was working on. Looking at this photo, the 2nd and fourth seem the most successful. That handle on the 3rd pitcher- ugh, gotta go (it's probably too late to add a new one, I think they're dry by now).

Here are a few new simple vase forms and some wide bowls. Once again, I'm still working on resolving these and have several more of the bowls under plastic, ready to decorate.

These are some funky vase forms half done. I need to do some sketching to figure out what I'm going to do with the top. It may end up completely closed with small holes or have an additional top. Who knows? I'll try to remember to post a picture of these when finished.

I'm likin' the new forms. Those vases really intrigue me. I'll be very interested in the outcome.

Hi, Amy :) Good to see you're able to spend some time
in your studio again. The pieces pictured look great; I especially like the vases.
