Thanks for popping in. Maria and Paul are busy up at the HOCHANDA TV studios, and I have had the afternoon off! Tut tut. Slacking… In my defence, I did start extra early today, and I did get loads done before I shot off to class….honest, Miss! And I may as well confess something else – JETTING OFF TO NEW YORK TOMORROW. Woohoo !!!!
But back to today:
Wednesday afternoon = POTTERY !!! I couldn’t wait to get there, to see how my teapot had turned out. There’s always the chance that something explodes in the kiln, or the glaze doesn’t work, or the piece cracks. Happy to report that the little teapot made it out of the kiln alive…
Spot the crackle? Crackle glaze painted it. Was a right old mess last week. The pot said 2 layers, but you couldn’t really see where you’d been!
Then I took a damp kitchen cloth and rubbed the excess ink away. Ready for the big reveal? Drum roll…..
Now all I need is a nice bead and a little wire to add the finishing touch to the 3rd lid.
Anyway, wanted to share this little lady with you. We need a name for her. Ideas below please!
And just for the record, she pours beautifully! NO DRIBBLES!!!
Love & Hugs,
