not just another trashy post


(bunny cup by Gary Rith)
You probably think its all fun and games and coffee and cookies and gossip here. There is plenty of that, and a little pottery too.
I was just making heart mugs for Lynda and experimenting (not with a lot of success in stamping wet pieces which is a new and unfamiliar techinque to me, but on the other hand I made the teardrop teapot shape I wanted easily) and realized I have the absolute messiest work table. Slips of paper, notes, doodles, hunks of clay, piles of dirty tools, and some pots. Tis the way I work (SEE BELOW).
Wicked nice out today, warm! SUNNY! Like 60 degrees which is good for the north in March. I had windows open for the first time since early October, about 6 months ago, and the little cats sit there breathing and sniffing the spring air, and the 2 dogs are just outside sunning themselves, sooo happy....

Loved the bunny cup. Isn't it wonderful when the day is warm enough to open a window.

Almost 75 degrees today in Chicago today!! WOO HOO!!! And don't you know a messy work area is a sign of genius? Or, at least the sign of someone working very hard? ;)
