These are from the 3rd kiln firing.. I was pretty disappointed as I am counting on these for the art show (Read more about that below) The plate and big bowl are perfect, but then as I was grinding down the sides of the plate so it wouldn’t wobble…. It fell… and broke. Then there was the Pitcher that as I was glazing slipped and broke but I still ran it through for testing the glazes. And in that same firing I had a mini pot about a half an inch thick NEW JULY FIRING 062 NEW JULY FIRING 063

And in that same firing I had a mini pot about a half an inch tall and was already sold so now I am set back 3 pieces and have more orders to make

So I have a great opportunity. I am doing a 3 day Arts and Crafts Show INDOORS in a 10′ x 10′ booth! It is in Durant, Oklahoma and it starts August 1st and ends the 3rd (something like 25 hours)!! All for the price of $35.00!! 😀 This will be the very first time I will be selling my stuff in public, beside the student art show, that lasted about 5 hours. They provide a table all I need Is some shelves and LOTS OF POTS! I am also selling my paintings there.

So some Sadness from the last kiln firing as well, but some came out perfect.awesomeness NEW JULY FIRING 039 NEW JULY FIRING 040 NEW JULY FIRING 041 NEW JULY FIRING 042 NEW JULY FIRING 043 NEW JULY FIRING 044 NEW JULY FIRING 050 NEW JULY FIRING 051 NEW JULY FIRING 052 NEW JULY FIRING 053 NEW JULY FIRING 054 NEW JULY FIRING 055 NEW JULY FIRING 056 NEW JULY FIRING 057 NEW JULY FIRING 058

Wish me luck!

I just had someone say this to me, referring to the help I have been giving him:

“The greatest among you will be those who serve you.”   :o)

          Well I am about to go open my kiln. I am terrified because A LOT is riding on this.  So wish me luck, because I need it! I will post pictures later today.

MY NEW CLAY SCALE!

Green Fire Bowl! And More…

I have listed a few more things on Etsy and sold 2 more things as well!  So as I was going into Etsy not expecting to sell a thing, I now know that maybe people are interested in my work.  Either way I would continue to make pottery… It keeps me sane, I think.  I sold 2 mugs to an awesome guy in Germany!  It feels crazy to know my pottery will be in a different country!  Here are the mugs I sold:
