In the process of...

Oh the site of mugs, could anything make a potter more happy! I'm working away on several things. I plan on making a bunch of drinking vessels this season because I have this really cool new display unit being made. If you recall I had bought a CD holder at IKEA a while back to use for my display but it didn't really work for me. So, the perks of working at a University is all the hungry grad students around who need money and are willing to use their skills and talents to help out. I found a very nice woodworking student who is currently helping me out with some of my display issues. This is SO exciting to me! Forget making the pots, its all about your display at a certain point in your career. ( I say this with zeal and much enthusiasm...surely someone out there can relate to this!) Anyways...I plan on having a bunch of different mugs to fill my new display unit.
Here are some large bowls under wraps drying.

These tall vases seem to be very popular these days. I've been sort of obsessed with getting my handles to match up just right, not only with each other but with the cuts I have on the tops of these pieces. I love the fact that I still find new things that need improvements in my work.

I love this "gal" here, look at those hands on her hips!

You're missed at clayworks! just got back from my class awhile ago. One thing I really like about your pots is that they have such a distinctive, graceful style. Great vases!
