It was 52 degrees INSIDE my studio yesterday morning. A wee bit cold. Below zero outside. I was busy though, and got a load of heart mugs glazed and fired (studio is still warm now thanks to the kiln finishing yesterday evening) and a quick peek in the kiln shows a nice bunch of stuff. Unloaded later.
There are many things I need to do today and I am NOT in the mood for any of it. Perhaps I shall be a free spirit and do as I wish.
(hahahaha! I do what I wish every day!)
I am entering a teapot competition in Chicago this month which is held every year. I visited it at the gallery years ago--teapots 125-500 dollars, all bright and cute and fun (that's what I do too!), which is the theme. I have entered twice and not been a winner, but I am thinking this year I have a good chance--even though I can only send 2 entries, and merely entering costs 25 bucks....
