thrown copper bowl, 2.25 inch diameter

So long since my last post…I’ve been making pots for the upcoming Colorado Potters Show & Sale.  (and dealing with a sore foot that I had surgery on 10/14)  Yesterday, while assisting Kathleen & Ortrud with the firing of one of kilns at the Guild, a large gas reduction kiln, I threw some COPPRclay for the first time.  I usually don’t throw this small, but it turned out nicely.  I also made a small spoon.  The next challenge will be the firing.

For the Potters sale, I threw some small salt bowls using B-Mix white stoneware (they are in the kiln cooling down).  I also made a few salt spoons from cone 6 Aspen porcelain yesterday.

Lastly, anyone for a picnic?  We had so much snow here in Denver for October–the fall leaves have yet to be raked!  Evan shoveled for the neighbors two days in a row, he has had 3 snow days-yippee!  I had to go back & forth to the Guild for stacking & firing-it was so icy!  And I’ve been driving in the snow for 31 years!

I received my copy of the PMC Guild’s Annual # 3, Exceptional Work in Metal Clay 2009, and this piece is in!  It was also published in the 2009 calendar, The Art and Design of Metal Clay Jewelry, by Holly Gage.  I feel very honored, as the work in the new annual is exceptional!

I am gearing up for a busy fall season, will post my schedule soon.  On October 16 & 17, I’ll be part of a Bazaar at the Crazy  Merchant in Littleton.

Oh–the first mouse came in the house from the cold, and was too sly for Scooter, my expert mouser.  He had the little guy & let him go in Evan’s room.  After pulling all the furniture away from the walls, he eluded us again…..
