I was feeling particularly blocked, so forcing myself to pull quick mono-prints was a great exercise.

I glazed three more mugs yesterday to test the glazes and techniques. Here is what came out of the test kiln this morning. This process is a lot of fun! I’m ready to start glazing the rest and loading the large kiln. ...

Just pulled these quickly decorated mugs out of the small test kiln. I’m experimenting with how to put designs on a smooth earthenware mug without all the glazes running together. These two have given me lots of great information! I’m excited to get glazing. ...

Yesterday, my beloved partner, Bill and I had a potluck, pizza party wedding. With the help of friends and family, we gathered tables and benches, strung lights, and transformed Island Folk Pottery (our home, pottery shop and sculpture trail) into a sparkling stage for joyful celebration. I made the pizza dough and Bill manned the outdoor oven. Delicious food was contributed by all. We could not have asked for a more perfect day. I am so grateful for the teamwork that helped to make our wedding truly special. ❤️ ...
