Saturday...

The kids and I whipped up a quick birthday cake for Joey this afternoon. Nothing like homemade birthday cake! Those cheap, sugar letters are always a hit with anyone under the age of ...well...20? I had left-over Halloween green skull plates for the "theme" of our party. Here is what I did the rest of the day......
Worked on pitchers, bowls and some oval serving boats below. I even got a bisque kiln loaded. Tomorrow I'll add some handles and finish the boats. Next on the list are olive dishes, cream and sugars and maybe the start of some flower blocks. On Tuesday I will need to start the glazing stage so I can be ready for the home sale I"m doing in Charlotte next weekend. Hope the computer doesn't call me away this week from all my studio work!

Hi. Seems like a busy day. I had similar program at Saturday. But instead of a cake I was making cupcakes with my little niece that came to visit me here in Toronto. We tried to make one special recipe from the internet. However, the result was little bit different than we had expected. But all in all it was big fun.

Have a nice day,
Julie

Hi, this is my first time to your blog. I'm a sculpture and ceramics major at Salisbury University. I hope one day to have the best of both worlds like you, having a family and art studio. I loved the cake. I have enjoyed visiting your blog.
Thanks, Nikki
