Long day...

Time for bed. I can't wait! I was at the studio from 10 in the morning and got home around 7:30 in the evening. I had a giant bowl of Brussels sprouts and finished off a bottle of wine (Fat Bastard, my new favorite) and now I am ready to sleep like a baby.

I worked on a lot of little pieces today - cleaning them up, preparing them for the bisque firing. I stared the kiln before I left and will go unload them on Tuesday. Then I will spend the day glazing. Then I will fire them again. It never ends..

There is a new Chinese restaurant in town called Rice. Not the most original name but man oh man, is the food excellent! Perhaps even more exciting (to me) are the take-out containers. They are large and have locking lids. In other words they are perfect for holding my unfired pieces! Needless to say we have been eating a lot of Chinese take-out lately and my container collection is growing nicely. :)

Here is a parting shot of me in the studio today, looking super thrilled. I can't seem to help the look on my face - I am naturally grumpy looking though I can assure you that in my heart I am squealing with delight and doing leaps of joy. :)

1Just think of those as little coins soon to be filling your pockets! What part do you like doing the best? I like looking at the piles of glazed pieces you show.

I think you look good in that sweater!
I'm always a fan of the roll neck sweater. I used to have one that was red from J. Crew. Damn, I wish I knew what happened to it.

Hi Rosanne - Hmmm, which part do I like best? That is hard to say - it is exciting to see new designs freshly pressed from a new mold, but I also love to glaze and opening the kiln when I have hundreds of shiny colorful pieces waiting for me is pretty exciting as well. I guess I like it all! :)

Hi L! - my sweater is an old (very!) J.Jill. It is part of my "studio collection." Meaning it's too worn out and ugly to be seen in public. Haha, I have a rather large studio collection...

You are an inspiration. Always so productive.

I evidently always have a funny, glum expression on my face, too. People are always asking 'what's wrong?'

Hmpf!
