Happy Easter Everyone!
The Easter Bunny blessed out raku yesterday with warm weather, blue skies, no wind, great friends, good food and a very successful firing! Thank you Easter Bunny :)
My pal Barbara even brought me some moss! This is my newest table runner, woven with more thrift store finds. A really ugly pink and orange silk blouse and two very ugly skirts, look what they became! This one is my best yet, not one mistake, yay!
We all had success, but I think Laura probably won the blue ribbon. And a good thing too. I used Laura as a guinea pig when I first got my kiln, it was the first raku firing with her and my friend Susan, and not only did it pour rain all day, I don't think Laura had one piece survive. Yesterday her good Karma came back with lots of amazing work!
Rick's Turquoise is a very cool glaze, it did something different on every piece. It is not for those with expectations however.
The body parts are for a larger sculpture piece Laura is preparing for her May show.
I am very blessed to have such great friends. We had such a good day, and Gerry was even off and with us some of the time. He got some veggie seeds in the ground so we will actually have a small garden this year. Life is good.
Happy coming back to life day, Jesus :)
