Start of the week

I had a good start to my work week today. I cleaned some shelves, started loading a bisque and finished up some new flower blocks. ( I just can't seem to get away from them). My last set of flower blocks in the last kiln I fired all had "foot"issues. Basically the feet either pulled away from form when they where firing or I had glaze runs that broke off little bits of the foot after the glaze firings. So....I'm taking a break from that shape and this time made a boxy shape with different kind of feet. I'm determined to figure out this puzzle and have some sort of flower block design be a regular thing I make in the inventory.
I'll get some photo's up tomorrow!

hey jen... the show was good I guess... comparing with other artists they seemed to think it was good but it wasn't GREAT.....so... I would have liked to do better... apparently my set up was good and the other potters/artists had nice things to say about my work.... so I would say it went well... unfortunately... I didn't SELL OUT!

Glad to hear you show went pretty well. Sometimes it takes awhile to build up a following at a show. You should do it again! And you know, I've never really known for someone to "sell out", but I may not be doing those types of shows.
Thanks for the feed back on the vessels.
You should put some photo's of your booth on your blog!
