I don’t think I have mentioned here that I am head over heals in love with wheel throwing. All I want in my life is family, friends, travel, essential oils, herbs, and pottery! Wanna see what I have fresh from the kiln?!
Recently I instagrammed this photo of a mug I made. I glazed it with three different blues Obsidian. I was going for a night sky look and, though it was not exactly as I envisioned it, I adore it none the less. I will try this look again soon in another piece but with only one coat of obsidian instead of 3 because it seems it devoured much of the blues.
I want to make a trillion teapots! I want to be known as The Mad Teapotter or some other such adorable moniker. I love tea and teapots and tea bowls and tea cups and matcha whisks and all I want to do is drink all the tea and make all of the things to put it in! I love everything about tea especially the fact that to make a proper cup it requires one to slow down and perform a little ritual. Drinks with ritual are earth magic and I feel so grounded and connected to humanity. I am scheduling time with my dear Carol to up my lid game.
This little love pot got treated to 4 different glazes! The base is two Celdons: Cherry Blossom on the top half and Lavender on the bottom half and they overlap in the middle. I dropped Arctic Blue and Blue Rutile thickly all around. This first photo is way too dark…I’ll replace it when we have some sunshine because so you can see the true colors like in the second photo.
This baby was made specifically for a dear friend of mine and she doesn’t even know it yet! I don’t think she reads this but I just can’t wait to share it anyway! This is Arctic Blue over Cobalt Celadon.
I also love coffee and purple.
Look at this and tell me I’m wrong:
Did I mention that I love tea?
Thank you for indulging me! Let me know what you think in the comments! What do you think I should make next? What’s on your wish list?
Your Potty Pal,
