and then there's Julie... sitting on the table in the kitchen:
My dinnerware project this semester is almost completed. Mine is not that spectacular as it is totally thrown and fairly simple whereas some are all hand-built, etched, carved, etc. They are really beautiful, but beyond my expertise. My goal is to learn to throw on the wheel and maybe one day branch out to combine both wheel throwing and hand-building. But for now, throwing the piece itself is a chore... but getting easier. And we have to have a sculpture as the center-piece. That part of the project is due this week. Once everyone's project is completed (in May), I will take some pics and show you the finished works. Then I will take the summer off, and continue again in the Fall.
BTW, it's actually cold again this morning here in Dallas... was in the 30's this morning!
It was in the 30s here, too, but that's not unusual. Now it IS unusual for Dallas, isn't it? Love that picture of the cat and the bunny. :-)ReplyDelete
Yes... (but apparently NOT THIS YEAR). We have had wonderful weather lately... mostly in the 70's and 80's... and it's supposed to drop down to close to freezing in the morning! But I guess the unusual is usual this year. Just glad I didn't put out my hanging herbs yet.Delete
I've never held a pool cue either, I think it's pretty neat you were learning!ReplyDelete
Looking forward to the pics of your dinnerware. I'm so untalented in any area that anything someone does seems impressive to me. LOL.
Winter's coming back for us too, tonight and through Wednesday. Enough already!
Kim, In reference to winter: Yes, enough already!Delete
Looking forward to those pictures.ReplyDelete
Your pool form looks like a pro's btw.
Is there a *pool form*? My son said that I tended to hold my mouth a certain way when getting ready to hit the ball. He said it was funny...Delete
You look like a natural with that pool cue in your hands. I have played pool before, but it has been a long time.ReplyDelete
Really, Olga? Were you good at it? I just concentrated on hitting one ball with another...Delete
Great photos, Rian, and it looks like inter-generational pool is proving a hit! :-)ReplyDelete
Actually, Perpetua, I didn't have any problem hitting the ball, but having it go where I wanted it to go is another story.ReplyDelete
