The postcards are printed. The show prep is on the way. Please come out and support the LillStreet Members if you are free and in the area! I will be "on duty" on Saturday from 10 to 12 noon and then again on Sunday from 12 noon to 2PM. See you then!

More work that came out of the kiln while I was on vacation. Added the cane handle to the vases. Need to trim the ends more.
A bud vase with mostly raw clay on the outside; splashes of rutile blue. Left the hardwork to the kiln and the soda vapor.
My series of sake bottle. Experimenting with forms. They function as vases as well. I don't think the traditional sake bottle pours well so I came up with these. Seems to pour pretty well and holds about 16 oz of liquid each. Outside with Mustard or Smooth Orange slip except the one on the right with the Rutile Blue on the outside.

I've been delinquent but, in my defense, summer in Chicago is much too nice to spend too much time indoors. On average, I've been spending about 2 days in the studio -- 1 day to throw and create and another day to trim, glaze, etc. etc. I am going to make this a short and sweet post and just show some of the work I've created recently.
