Hello again! (photo heavy post)

Wow!  I have been gone a long time!  All good, just June was a crazy month.  We just got back from 10 days at the beach so I wanted to show you some of the stuff that came out of my kiln right before we left.  I was playing around with Amaco glazes (Celebration, Potters Choice, and Sahara) just adding them randomly on top of each other.  Thought I would show you some of them...
I was just playing around with the glazes so I didn't right anything down or do any test pieces.  I'm pretty sure this is aqua over bright yellow.  I really like the color.

This is just aqua.
This is the aqua over the yellow again.
This is green over blue.
love these
This is from an antique button of a ship.  I love the button but I just can't get a good pendant from it.  I give up.  It's a cool button - sucky pendant.
This blue was so strong that you can hardly see the green in this.
love this button.
This was a lavender glaze over a red glaze....gaaaah, it's black.
I'm off the crutches but I have to wear a brace for 4 weeks (about 1 1/2 weeks to go).  Isn't it lovely?
The beach was perfect.
Howard enjoys the beach...(his tongue is all dried out again - poor dog - his tongue just doesn't fit in him mouth so he looks like this all the time)
He still hates the water.  Molly tried to get him to go in with her
unfortunately, he was standing next to my chair with his back to the water and we didn't see the giant wave coming...and he was standing on his own leash...and the wave came...and poor poor Howard was trapped ankle deep in water!  Oh the shaking.  Oh the trauma of it all.  He made us leave the beach after that...
Molly and Howard...
We had our family ski ball competition...
hmmmm, Molly's score on the right...Jason's score on the left...yeesssss!
Monday I'm back to work in the studio.  I have 5 custom orders that came in while I was away.  Looking forward to starting those.  Have a great weekend!


  1. Very cool test results! I've got a thing for deep puddling greens and blues.

    I recently purchased a couple more of the Amaco PC glazes in the newer colors. Will be switching up the BOC third Friday Glaze posts to some test results on them for August or Sept Cone 6 posts. Finishing up with the Coyotes for a bit…

    Glad your foot/ankle is healing… Pretty toe nails too!

  2. Thanks for dropping by my blog. So glad you liked what I did with the pink ceramic hearts. Am loving your new pieces, especially those in photos 3, 4 and 6. Guess I'll be visiting your etsy shop soon :)
