Looking forward to this weekend

Should be a productive weekend. I have no plans except to make pottery and watch the Dark Knight, which I've been meaning to get to but the summer has been busy. I might venture over to the Uptown Art Fair. But, be sure to check back this weekend, I'm planning to have a new post on Saturday and Sunday. It's going to be hot and humid here this weekend, 90 degrees, so the kiln probably won't get fired, but I'm planning to make a bunch of pots and look up art fairs for this coming Fall. Talk more soon.

A few dog bowls . . .

I've been getting into making pottery for pets recently. Dog bowls and cat dishes mostly. There was a Paws on Grand event here in the Cities, and I made several sets. It ended up raining in the afternoon, but a good turnout in the morning saved the day (4,000 pets were estimated for the day) and a few friends from the coffee shop I used to work at stopped by too - what a surprise!

More marbleware pottery coming soon!

Here's an image from the last firing of the marbleware. This is an area of pottery that I think I'm really excelling at, but still flying by the seat of my pants because there are so many color combinations that I'd like to try! Hit reload often, as I'm constantly updating with new images.
