Care For Some Tom Frites?…

It was only a matter of time before having pomme frites at a place owned by a man named Tommy would turn into having Tom frites. My bisque went off yesterday morning and I will be glazing today and this week Dad and bug day was replaced by Dad, Mom and bug day. Mom’s on vacation which will be a slight windfall to get one last glaze firing before the delivery date of Friday. So we all headed down to Tommy’s and had coffee, chamomile tea and pomme frites. Here’s the bug in her element…

Here’s some pics of some of the very last bowls to get into the bisque on Friday. I was in a mad rush to get them etched and slipped to get the bisque started Friday night.

I met Jeff last night to discuss logistics and it looks like I may not be traveling to Chicago with him. He is almost sure he’s gonna hang with some friends and I cannot stay overnight so he offered to just deliver all the pots himself. The best part of this is that it will be more likely that I can justify making a trip up for the closing in April.

    You should be there at the opening!

    Great portrait, there, of Sofia at the table.
    You should hang that on your wall when she’s all growed up.
    Crossed fingers here too, for the perfect firing.

    Good luck with the firing, hope there are a few beauties dancing in the heat as we speak. She is so comfortable in front of the camera – very spontaneous – one wonders what opportunities this might bring in the future.

    James- Sofia is really looking like a Gottuso these days. I love that last pic of the inside of that bowl also. Good luck with the deadline.
