Am I blue over you? If you are my pottery piece, the answer is yes. Beautiful cobalt blue glaze all over the above large lidded pot and the mini lidded pot which sits in front of the large lidded pot in its greenware stage. They both went to a fireplace mantle and bookcase in a beautiful white living room. A classic look and still my favorite color.

The Clay Class has grown over the past year and getting pieces fired is on-going. It's an interesting challenge to pack a kiln to its maximum capacity with the variety of shapes, sizes and thicknesses of pieces that very creative students can create. And I quite like the challenge. The process must tap into that weird, methodical, organizational part of my brain. I must say that the Skutt digital kiln makes it very easy. Already 300 firings and counting...knock on wood.

I am getting dangerously close to a year passing without posting. Can't let that happen. So the two images are of lots of pots and lots of people who attended the 2017 soup bowl fund raiser for the Draper Senior Center. It's a great event all around. My Clay Class students have been working overtime creating new beautiful soup bowls for the next event which is less than two months away. Unbelievable!

A little slip decoration on these soup mug bowls for the Draper Senior Center fundraiser coming this Fall. The blue mug has some raised terra cotta slip scrolls covered with clear glaze. The other has a swirl of terra cotta slip painted onto greenware, also with a clear glaze finish. Some of the terra cotta color burned away and it gives the impression that the mug is already a gourmet cup of java.
