Just opened the kiln and ...oh boy......I can feel a new necklace being born! I think I will use copper as an accent and perhaps some wonderful glass beads or???? I love the hunt to find just the right pieces. I have tons to upload to Etsy so I am going to have to put this on the back burner for a while and I really think this is going to be more of a fall design. I have to trim the bowl and mug - attach the handles to the mug and add the designs. Sure glad I have everything on wheels so I can spread out in my studio!

I got up this morning with all intentions of posting to Etsy - but I got side tracked. I wanted to throw on the wheel. I have not thrown anything for ages! In the 70's I loved to throw but I hurt my wrist and that seemed to end my career as a potter. Years later I had surgery but never tried wheel work again. Amazing - I can still throw - Now I have a long way to go but centering was a breeze. Guess it is like riding a bicycle! Here is my first attempt. A baby mug and bowl...looks like a perfect match to my bibs...stay tuned.....
