Wheel Thrown Pottery Communion Sets

Wow....  I can't believe I haven't 
posted since November!
We've had a grandbaby (Samuel Alan) and an engagement (daughter Sarah to Nick Patton), a college graduation and much, much more!

Life is busy.  Life is interesting.  Life is more than fun.

We were re-landscaping a large part of the grounds before Sarah's engagement.  Now, her wedding will be held here on the farm, so...landscaping is in full gear.

And, I've finally carved out enough time to throw more pottery than just the commissioned pieces.  So, I chose communion sets!  (Of course) My favorite forms...and vessels of honor,.A true honor for me when I can join in the communion of saints all around the country.  Find them here:

Raku Pottery Workshop

I love this technique!

I attended a raku workshop with Sawtooth, taught by Gaff Pearce, and these are two of my resulting pieces.

Raku is instant gratification. We all took pieces already bisque fired and learned the process of raku by doing. And the pieces are glazed so quickly we took them home immediately.

Great fun, even if it is just for display (never use).

Vineyard Series

Grape vines are growing strong, and with them, lush leaves!
I love this series, the Vineyard Series, even if the season limits the pieces I can create in it each year. These are the first of our grape leaves, and as the season goes on, I will switch to leaves of a local vineyard (with permission, of course).
