Life is Change

There is nothing permanent except change.

–Heraclitus

All changes, even the most longed for, have their melancholy; for what we leave behind us is a part of ourselves; we must die to one life before we can enter another.

–Anatole France

So much has happened here. So much is about to.

–Walter Bishop

Back in the Blog Game

Well, it’s been over 6 months since I posted on this blog. Don’t worry, I’m not giving up. Just taking a little time off. 6 months… it has gone by in a blur. The next few posts will be a quick look at a series of changes that have happened and are happening in my life. I’ll try to work in a few new pots as well.

So get ready. I hope to cover topics such as: welcoming our new daughter, the new site!, my new place of employment, and a new sales outlet for my pots. Maybe I’ll even write about some new gadgets that I’ve purchased.

Shot Glasses or Tiny Cups

I love making these tiny little cups. First, they are easy and quick. Second, they are great for testing glazes. Third, they fill in spaces between the bigger pieces in the kiln.

All fired wheel thrown, stoneware clay, fired to ^6 in oxidation.

Bowls Are Few and Far Between

I just haven’t made a lot of bowls lately. Cups are a higher priority right now. I like the shape and they are a easier to glaze. Since I’m still mostly experimenting with glazes the cups have been much more in demand.

Here is one small bowl that I really like. I love the shape and the glaze is nice. Jen’s Juicy Fruit over Dark Brown on the outside. I wish it were a little larger.
