a prelude to Easter 2017...

Hi there!

Isn't this the cutest pic?  While I was sitting here trying to think of something to write about, I was going through pics and came across this one. With Easter just a few days away, I decided it would be appropriate.

Here's a few others that I took over on campus. As I was leaving the pottery studio yesterday, I saw this little family out on the water... enjoying the beautiful weather.










a closer look shows 8 little goslings!






I thought they might swim off when I got closer, but they were actually turning towards me. Guess they are used to students on the campus... maybe hoped to get some bread?









When I left the studio, the finished pieces on my shelf were as follows:



a strange looking pitcher


 
a few bowls and cups  
























 
                       ... and more of my little critters












And on the greenware cart, I left a few mugs and items that I was playing around with.







These pieces need to be fired for me to see what I plan to do with them next. The mugs are made with a clay called Spectacular... which comes out spotted. the other items are made with paper clay.









And lastly, here's my darling Tux... making himself comfortable in the middle of my messy computer room floor.




Have a great rest of the week!

  2. I have bunnies running around my yard. They are cute, but it makes it tricky to get the garden going. I really like those little critters you make. You are going to have to start selling at craft fairs.

    1. We don't see bunnies so much in the neighborhood anymore. It may be due to all the feral cats... As for selling my little critters, we do have a studio one day sale coming up in May... and I may put a few things in it to see how they go over.

  3. You've been busy with your pottery!

    Look at those adorable goslings. Seems odd to see pics of them so early, but of course your climate is much warmer than ours.

    Have a lovely Easter weekend; wishing you a joy-full holiday!

  5. Your pottery is lovely. It must be satisfying to create something interesting and unique.
    Love the photo of the goslings. The geese are back here but it is still a little early for the little ones. Soon I hope, though the weather is forecast to get colder again this week.

    Have a Happy Easter!

  6. That really is the cutest bunny picture!! Oh, and the baby geese! I love things like this. You pottery looks great! My mother was born and raised in Seagrove North Carolina, a place known for potters and pottery. Seagrove is such a small town, there is nothing much there except pottery shops along both sides of the road for miles and miles. Folks come from everywhere to shop. In fact, there were pottery makers in my family. Happy Easter!

  7. As a new follower, I have been going back and taking a look around, which I have enjoyed immensely. There have been a few blogs, but only a few, that I became so interested in that I ended up reading the entire thing from start to finish. I may end up doing that here. It's just that I seem to like just about everything you do...except maybe for the coffee! ~Chip
