Spring!

Haven’t posted in a few days. Between my motherboard dying, my video card dying, and my router committing suicide[1], I haven’t been able to post anything the last few days.

It’s been a busy few days.

First, the wine cups were trimmed and decorated:

The carving went much faster this time, between different tool choices and some finagling with techniques.

Then, there was the entry for the gallery’s spring show:

I used yellow slip for the dandelion blooms, and a mix of green underglaze, copper slip, and en eeensy bit of brown for the stems and leaves. I’m hoping the colour comes out the way I want it to–I haven’t played much with underglaze, and I’m not quite sure I have the hang of it.

Aaaand then this morning was the first day of the kids Easter camp. Two little Star Wars nerds signed up, which is *awesome*. Other people are teaching the rest of the week, but today we got to sit around and make stuff and talk about droids and Jedi. I may bring in some action figures tomorrow, which will be sculpture day, so they can use them as references.
