This is going to be a short one.  I have SO MUCH to do before Friday when things need to be packed up and taken to Anja Hertle’s for the Northumberland Studio Tour!!!  But, I promised you some pictures yesterday, and here they are …

First teaset.

Second teaset.

Teaset with cups.

Batchelor button teaset.

And of course the bowls!

Celadon green tree bowls.

Red tree bowls.

There’s also the celtic design cups, etc., from that last firing coming to the show as well!  It will be worth a drive to Grafton on Saturday or Sunday.

I think perhaps the kiln gods knew that some cheering up was in order.  I have some trinkets in the oven now as well, so there’ll be some new tree amulets.  I’m thinking perhaps they need some gold, but we’ll see how much time I have.

Have to give a shout out to my friends who encouraged me to get back into the tree motiffe, helped with the waxing, and did the “rah, rah” from the sidelines.  Couldn’t do this without them.  And a BIG thank you to Anja for letting me camp out at her studio this weekend. I’m looking forward to seeing all of my Northumberland buddies!

So grateful to be doing what I’m doing …

Hope you’re having a great day,

Susan McD

This one’s for my buddy Gwen …
