Weeks work

Here is my first little house made in my new studio, fired and cleaned and getting it's picture. This one turned out great, funny how much better work can be when you have a proper place to work.
I set out this week to make a bunch of bowls and the goal was to have them all alike. I was doing good for awhile, then I got distracted and made a few different ones....
Then I got distracted again and quit making bowls..........
I made some new pendants, and a bunch of new houses.
What a beautiful beautiful day it was today. I have lots going on, lots of new things in my head and making some work I am very proud of for my show in May. I'm making some fun stuff for Shakori and the Hillsborough show this weekend and more serious work for the NC Craft Gallery. I don't know if I am going to have a lot for Shakori, but I'm mostly going there to play so it's all good. It's quite a conglomeration of stuff, but somehow it works....

Ah, the mind of an artist~ letting yourself be guided to the next thing and getting great results!

Have a wonderful weekend!

It's so easy to get distracted when you're repeating a form. It seems you did very well before and after the distraction.

I truly LOVE your houses. Raku firing is so perfect for them! And the cracking? If the roof can be put back on....I wouldn't sweat it. Just so much personality.

Nice, nice, nice looking work Tracey. Man, you work hard! If I worked that hard I'd be somebody, instead of a bum,which is what I am (what movie??? I bet you know.)
Also, I just got 500 Raku from the library, and was so pleased to see your pear in there(page 114).
You can't be stopped! Keep up the good work.
