Happy "222" day! (February 22, 2018)

Hello, Friends!  How is everyone?  I hope you are all happy and healthy! I'm packing up pots tonight from my last batch.  Shipped about 1/2 of them yesterday and am packing up the rest tonight.  Note: you will get an email with the tracking info when I ship out your order!

Again, here are the customers whose pots were in this batch:  A. Dibling, C. Burgess, E. Holden, B. Carney, W. Stocker, C. Mairano, I. Glaunsigner, J. Eves, D. Middleton, C. Dalke and K. Young.

Decorating pots...

Lots of PEACE pots in this batch!!  These are the blue/green ones I'm doing now.  I use laser decals (that I print on my laser printer) and the iron oxide of the toner acts like a stain on the glaze when I fire them for the last time.  So, the designs are permanent and part of the glaze!  The designs will look sepia brown after they are fired instead of the black look they have now.

Happy Memorial Day!

Dear Friends:

Hello!  In the US, today is Memorial Day where we remember our loved ones who fought for our freedoms.  It is a bank-holiday also, so most of us get to have the day off from our day jobs.  Yay!  It's a beautiful day here in Ohio, sunny and about 75 degrees F.  I'm inside decorating pots in my current batch.  It's tough to stay inside on such a beautiful day, but I have to take the time when I get it!  My husband, Terry is outside working on his garden.  

Still decorating...

Hello, Friends!

Glaze fire done--on to decorating!

Hello, Friends!  I hope all those on the east coast of the US survived the Winter Storm safely this week!  Wowza!  You all are still digging yourselves out.  Hang in there!

I high-fired this current batch load to cone 5 which is about 2,300 degrees F and let them cool down slowly, about 12 hours.  Brought them in the house last night to allow them to acclimate to the house temp.  Tonight I'm starting to decorate them!  Wanted to share a picture with you!  I'll try to get a photo as I'm decorating in the next few days.

It's almost New Year's Eve!

Hello, friends!  I hope you are all happy and healthy!  I cannot believe that tomorrow is New Year's Eve.  This year of 2016 has been very difficult for many people.  We will never forget the many loved ones who crossed over this year.  Many are happy to leave 2016 behind and I must say that I'm ready for it to be over also.  I hope 2017 brings love, joy and prosperity of all sorts to everyone on Mother Earth at this time.  I am very grateful for all my blessings and send love & light to all.

Drying pots...

Hey, Friends! Here's a picture from my studio where I've got some coffeehouse mugs, soup mugs, latte bowls, a mug and a plate drying. I'm working on a batch now and will continue to throw more coffee mugs, travel mugs, etc. in this load. The darker ones are more wet. Keeping them covered with plastic so they dry slowly with the electric heater on in my studio. Don't want the handles to crack.
