Fall Came Out Of My Kiln This Morning

I am so so happy with this batch from the kiln!  I love every color and every piece!

 I even made a few spiders.
 And I could look at this glaze all day.
 I love love love the colors in it!

I will start loading these pieces to my Esty shop later today and all weekend.  I'm off to glaze the earthenware clay and load up the kiln again.  Have a great Friday! yay Friday!

Cleaning Clay and Knitting

I spent the entire day yesterday making buttons and pendants in stoneware, porcelain, and earthenware clays!  It was a looooong day at the desk but I have a full kiln of stoneware and porcelain bisque being fired today and tomorrow I will bisque fire the earthenware stuff that I'm cleaning up today.  I can't wait to see these glazed.  I love them.
 I have also been knitting like crazy!  I love these mug cozies!  I've been playing around with buttons to see what I want to use - I think I will wait till some of the new pieces from yesterday are glazed.  I'd like to get these listed by this weekend.
I like how they look on a mug.
some have good "guy" colors.
but this one might be my favorite so far.
That's what is happening here.  Have a great Tuesday!

MIA No Longer!

I can't believe it's been so long since I've posted!  This past month has been one thing after another including a three day stay in the hospital for me because for some reason my heart has decided to run on overdrive!  Still not sure what is going on with it - I'm running on medium speed but my heart is running on extra high.  Anyhoo, I am still playing with glaze combinations.  I am really happy with these next three glazes.  They are on porcelain (top on the right) and on brown stoneware.

 These pieces are all in the same pink glaze - the three on the bottom had some of the glazed wiped off.
 and here it is on the stoneware.  It's dark, but I like it for fall.
 I made this little acorn and look...there is a number 5 on it?  what's up with that?
and then I flipped it over and there is the number 115! doo doo doo doo...a message from beyond?
 I have also been knitting.  I'm making mug cozies to use with my buttons.  I like this first one the best so far-I really like this pattern.

Yesterday was Kellie's birthday-my baby is 11.  I'm old as dirt. :O)  Kellie said to me this know your going to start shrinking now right? Pretty soon you'll be short enough to fit in my clothes.  go to school kid!
