Pints And Drawings…

We went to BBC last night… this is our regular haunt because they have a stage full of toys for kids and while they play, we drink beer. We also bring a drawing pad and markers just in case the stage is unpopulated with other rugrats. The stage and toys didn’t last long so our plan B paid off and Sofia enjoyed herself drawing. Here’s a relatively contemplative shot of her with one of her drawings…


Well, I got my 25 lbs. of Matt and Dave’s ^6 porcelain and I need to get back to throwing… it will probably give me fits today if I get to it because of the throwing hiatus. First I need to get some shelving up because I got 3 kilnloads of finished work on every surface of the studio and nowhere to put it. I posted more pots to Etsy yesterday and the shop is starting to fill up for the first time since I opened it. I will probably add pots daily for a while… at least until our first family vacation since the sugarbug was born. We are all looking forward to that. Here’s some pots I posted yesterday, someone on twitter mentioned that she thought the first one’s color was buttercream… not too familiar with the dairy products myself but it’s a lovely word and conjures pleasant imagery I suppose. The second two little golden yellow bowls are really two different pots and the pair is about as close as I get to making multiples (1st click to Etsy, the rest enlarge)…

    Such a great picture of Sofia — she has such an intelligent face & she’s starting to look grown-up — kinda first grade-like.

    Love the glaze colors. Let me know what you think of the People’s Porcelain — I’m so happy with earthenware – but might want to try it . . . means getting the red dust out of my studio though . . .

    I have a box of the ^6 porcelain on the way myself.

    Judy, the ^6 is called The Coup (only the ^12 is Porcelain for the People). Just trying to stave off any confusion.

    I’m excited to try The Coup after reading everything about the ^12. Can’t wait to hear what you think of it Jim.

      I love the names of these clays — Power to the Porcelains!
      I’m waiting on a low-fire version — now what would they call that — ‘revolution?’

    Your bowls are gor-geous. 🙂 I just learned what ‘chattering’ was when I was in Tuscarora… and here I thought it was a bad thing when I did that before. Ben Parks set me straight… he said it was ‘sought after’, so now I’m seeing chattering in a whole new light. 🙂

    what a beautiful girl… looks so confident and she is growing up!

    Great picture of your daughter… The bowls are great too! Love that stamp of yours on the bottom.

    love your pots & your belle fille
    I particularly admire your etched signature/logo, very clever and desirable
    fyi – buttercream is a cake frosting, only incidentally a diary product, that you’re sure to find on carrot cake. Perhaps Sofia would help you to compare colors.
