Squaresville, Man…

I went into the studio yesterday to work on those vases and it was really cold again. After a couple hours, I couldn’t take it anymore so I dragged everything upstairs again to finish the rest of the day in relative warmth. Here’s the vases that I posted yesterday, I got a comment from my local potter friend, Maggie, saying to leave them the way they were but I had already done what I suggested…

I guess only time will tell. We woke this morning with a good 3-4 inches of snow and it’s still coming down like a fine dust. I think Sofia had the worst of it yesterday and she’s on the mend but probably won’t be herself until Monday. The coughing and sneezing… I thought it would never stop. I spent some hours putting little squares on some beer glasses and the bug sat next to me practicing her computer skills doing online jigsaw puzzles…

    good choice with the flourishes, handles….those pieces look great…will you be doing your “thang” on the surfaces?

    yes you should start referring to your deco techinque(s) as your ‘thang’ . That would be great. Snow here too, but I haven’t been out in it yet. Have no desire to really. Online jig saw…I had no idea that existed. Off to Google it. Have a good day. Hope the Bug gets to feeling better.

    bug looks a bit snuffy there.
    Snow here and I would love it if you came and took it all back home with you!

    Luv the vases , can’t wait to see the end result of you doing your ‘thang’. The I assume hand-built additions give them that one-of-a kind look and feel – almost expressive in nature. This will be enhanced once the decoration is completed – you doing your ‘thang’ again. Your absolutely fabulous trademark. I do like them – more of what resides in your blog’s main image. I luv decorating – wish I could get my hands on them. You might not know but I cant throw – never ever really tried either. Have fun – albeit without the sun – glorious day year after a night of JHB storms.

    Poor Sofia. She doesn’t look like her usual bouncy self. Glad she is on the mend.
    Super vases. I especially want to pick up the one with the upturned handles.
    sidenote – Have you ever tried Zcoil shoes? Jobsaver for my friend with pf who has to stand all day.

    Totally digging the additions to the vases. They add a rather modern flair to those groovin’ forms.
