Dessert Plates for the fourth & clay Holiday Desert Show waiting to be glazed
I returned from France about 2 weeks ago. I had a wonderful adventure. So much fun that I didn't have time to blog about it!
Upon returning though I have been in a total daze getting ready for the HOLIDAZE. At first I was in denial ...Thanksgiving couldn't possibly be next week. Now I am in the weeds...glaze buckets slopping on the floor, wild kiln dances as I fill up Big Bertha and pray my hurriedly glazed, lovingly made (made before my travels) pots will be blessed with a good firing. This Holiday madness has it's upside. Our studio is humming with activity as Christa, rae and I are all in the same boat. The Christmas tunes started last week and the Happy Hour juices are flowing. Misery LOVES company but as things go this is definitely not so miserable.
It's good to be home.
Ornaments all ready on the clothesline.
