I am doing this today, burnishing my teapot that I worked so hard on last week. It's kinda boring, so I thought I'd share this video instead.

While scraping and grinding kiln shelves, I turned on a burner to melt the snow out of the kiln. I bricked up the door to hold the heat in a bit, so the burner could do its job; and in doing so I was reminded: my castable blocks areShow More Summary
This is one of the handbuilt projects I've been focused lately. I arranged the stoneware clay in coils into this wooden bowl. I actually laid plastic in it before coiling the clay inside, this is because I wanted to be able to dump it out after a few days and smooth down the rim from the underside with a sponge.

Someday, I would like to post some pictures of stoneware instead of snow. To that end, I'm going to have to fire. And to do that, I had to clear the kiln of drifts that were shoulder-high in some places. (Of course, my shoulders areShow More Summary
I started out placing the lid into a bowl...thought it might be nice to curve it, after looking at it on the pot I had other thoughts. I cut off about 1 1/2" off the middle part (It just made the teapot top heavy). And I decided to go with the same type of lid as the model. Show More Summary
I used to have this sweet little girl that loved going out in the snow. We would get our warm clothes on as soon as the snow started falling and wouldn't come in until we were frozen popsicles. We had inner tubes, sleds, snowboards. We lived near a golf course and had a neighborhood full of kids that were friends. Show More Summary
Yep, it's definitely going to be a teapot. I thought it would be, but now I'm certain. I better be. I threw a spout for it. I began this morning by going into my studio and evaluating the handle I put on it late yesterday afternoon. I wasn't happy with it. Show More Summary

I added the feet today to the pot I made yesterday (see previous post).The shape I am basing it is on this teapot on the far left. That is a stoneware that was gas fired to cone 10 and covered with an all over iron oxide decal pattern...Show More Summary
I wanted to share some thoughts about my new work with you all. I've been posting images around on facebook and instagram, so you may have already some of it. I've been pretty good about uploading it to Flickr, so if you want to see what I have so far, you can check it out there. Show More Summary
I'm sitting here this morning having coffee with Gerry, the sun is out, the snow is still powdery and glistening in the sunlight, birds are all over the bird feeder and one little bird is chirping away. Gerry just commented that it sounds like its saying "stupid, stupid, stupid". Show More Summary

I may or may not turn this into a teapot. I am not done throwing it yet. Do you see that small shape in the left top hand corner? That is the shape I am planning to make this vase/teapot. Not that this shape isn't very nice, it is nice,...Show More Summary
Thank you to PicMonkey once again for providing an easy way to collage these five photos. I started off with compressing coils into an oval plate (thank you to Chipotle for the bowl, and by the way, their Burrito Bowls are awesomely good!) Second Picture: I pushed the coils together with my fingertips. Show More Summary
I somehow messed up this bunny bead with a small pink dot from another glaze. It's a cute bead. It will go into the bead bowl for 'misfit' beads that I keep for my granddaughter. I have given her a large used guitar string to string up beads for fun. Show More Summary
