How long does it take?

I'm in the Northumberland Studio Tour next weekend, and the question that I will hear most often is "how long does it take you to make" whatever it is a person is interested in ...  So here goes! First, you make the piece (or pieces if you're making a teapot or things...

Creating a canvas

I spent today trimming and slipping bowls --    And now their all outside, waiting to get into the kiln.  Some are actually sunbathing because it's too damp in the basement right now to get them really dry!  I'm going to need some time to paint all of these with tiny...

Just say Uncle …

It's never made any sense to me to call out "Uncle" when admitting defeat.  At least not in my family ... I had two uncles when I was growing up, and both were just a few years older than me.  One was Uncle Roy, and the other was Uncle Keith.  I was probably the only...

Commiting hari kari …

Arrgghhh!  Made three big beautiful platters -- and I mean BIG!  They were all trimmed, almost dried, and I applied slip to the middle (was going to paint trees around the rim).  The two largest cracked.  I thought the first one cracked because of the way I flipped it...

Don’t go away …

I'm sure you've heard that before.  "Don't go away, I'll be right back."  It's kind of what I should have said a month ago!  I have been away -- first to the daughter's wedding, then with a minor hit of pneumonia, and then with my mum with her stuff -- but I'm back...

Did you miss me?

Whew!  What a week!  We got back Saturday night, after a week away -- at Sauble Beach.  I know, that sounds delightful, eh?  And, it was in so many ways ... but, we were BUSY!  We were there for the week up to our daughter's wedding, so the time was filled with kids,...

Forget Mr. Rogers …

What's that?  Are you saying it's not possible?  Well, maybe it is ... if you're looking for a new neighbourhood!  And, maybe if you're a faerie, or a lover of faeries, or beneficial insect friends, or toads ... Because if you are, do I ever have a neighbourhood for...

Can’t hurry love …

That's what we're told.  Actually, it's love and pottery.  I've got eight monster faerie houses drying and because there's so many darn attachments on them, they can't be hurried.  They are taking up all of my usable space in the studio.  They need to move along into...
