Clay Day 13 and 14

Phew! The last few days have been absolute scorchers! I can't believe the difference in weather since last week! It's really nice to have everything flung open to let the summer breeze through the house and to hear the birds singing. What a shame about the flies, kids, motorcycles, and Scott's music from upstairs!! :)

I tried to get another photo of the tiles I was working on the other night. This photo is much better. I'm not sure if it's because they are drying or because it was taken in daylight, but here it is.

And here is the vase I have been working on for the last couple of days...

erm... not much like a vase is it?! I'm hoping to do more this evening, but I keep having to stop to let it set a bit because otherwise it just flops around!

And that's me, up to date. Oh wow, I've just realised - I've completed two weeks!! Go me! :)

And now it's time for a sandwich before picking up my sister so that she can get the lawn mower out of the shed for me! Hahaha, what a carry on! Scott's gone out and I can't go in the shed - there's spiders in there!!

I am with you on the spiders! I think the tiles look wonderful. When will you fire up the kiln. Linda..You should be very proud of yourself. That 28 day challenge was hard...I suppose that is why they call it a challengs. There were days when I didn't feel like being artistic...but I did some work anyway. YOU GO GIRL!

I'm going! I'm going! Hahaha :D

Thank you Kathy! The kiln gets serviced on Monday, so I'll be firing anytime after then. I might wait until the end of the week to see if I can get a few more pieces together. The kiln is going to be so empty!!
