Ta-dah!

The sunflowers made it despite the critters of early spring and summer. This pot houses my 3rd round of sunflowers. I decided not to transplant them to the back yardand keep them close to my back porch. Glorious results! Close up of the potted sun flowers next to the back porch. Such a sunny delight!...

Where The Wild Things Are

Where the wild things are . . . in our back yard, of course! "Little Rabbit" checking out the Bee Balm. Rabbit in the garden. Notice all that untouched lettuce in the 2nd row! I'm all for wild life and all. Except when I'm not. I am on my THIRD round of trying to plant... Continue Reading →

Close to Normal

Life is close to normal around here. Flowers and trees starting to bloom. And I am back behind my wheel throwing things. I pushed "Publish" before I was done and since then I forgot what else I was going to say! So, with that I'll bid you adieu. Until next time, stay well.    ... Continue Reading →

Oh Grog!

This year's throwing season seems to be going well!  Very minimal mistakes plus,thanks to learning about an alternative way to take large pots off the bat, I have been able to throw larger pieces: plates, serving bowls, platters and pet bowls!  To date, I have thrown over 35 pieces since Memorial Day! 😀 Unfortunately, I'm...

Loading the Kiln

It's hot. Hot. Hot!  Loading the kiln today. Soon the first bisque firing will be underway (as soon as the undies in the dryer are done! Kiln and dryer are on the same circuit and, therefore, can not run at the same time.) The pots have been allowed to air dry up to this point;... Continue Reading →
