Productive Week

This has been a productive week for me, thanks to having no car! In my last post I showed what I had created on Monday and Tuesday of this week, and here is what I produced on Wednesday, again, coil built:

It was great having no transport for a few days! I managed to get a few jobs done around the house too. I've come to the conclusion that I like being stranded at home! I felt much more relaxed and productive when we had all that snow as well, and we were advised to stay at home. Hooray for snow and failed MoT's! :) Life was back to normal by Thursday though and I haven't found the time to get my clay out since then.

I'm looking forward to getting a pretty glaze for these pieces, but there are so many to choose from! I'm not very good at making decisions, as you have no doubt noticed by the fact that I can never decide which animal I am going to make next! I'm thinking corn flower blue, or a pale pink, but there are also many glazes with crystals in that produce an amazing mixture of colour. Hmm... maybe I'll just have to make an endless amount of vases and try a new glaze every week! :)

Hey Un D! These are wonderful. The narrow neck is really pretty on top of these big breasted vases. Yay! for being stranded and being allowed to do what ever you desire!
Can't wait to see what colors you choose.

Thank you Leanne! I hope I can get them fired and glazed before the end of my course! I think they have come out better than the original ivy vase, which was thick walled and heavy. These are much thinner and lighter.

Thank you Jim, and thanks for popping by my blog!

It's funny you say that because I really wanna throw! I'm gonna look out for a cheap second hand wheel to practice on.

OOh! These are beautiful, Undaunted! I love the curved edges at the neck of the pots. I can't wait to see them with color!

Sometimes it's just fun to sit back, relax at home and create. :)

Thanks Queeny! I'm glad you like them. :-)

Beautiful vases! Can't wait to see them glazed.

I'm finally back and blogging once again. Hope all is well and I look forward to visiting your blog on a regular basis--finally.

Thank you T!

I also need to get back to blogging and reading regularly. Where does all the time go?

These are quite lovely, Linda! I just tried some coiling for the first time in awhile and it's not an easy way to make pottery - but oh so therapeutic.

Thank you Cynthia! It's very time consuming isn't it? I can't wait to have my own wheel and learn to throw properly (and quickly!)
