billions of berry bowls
So far, the bowls take up 2/3 of the kiln. With these ten plus a dozen tiny bowls, the kiln will be full enough to fire TONIGHT! I'll have another load of detailed leaf print and ladybug pieces for the farmers market later in the week, but these guys should be up and out on etsy by Tuesday. If you've gotten an email from me lately, your bowls will be in this first batch. I'll have more between the first and second weeks of June, so don't despair if you haven't heard from me. There are 28 in this batch- one is designated as the "Bridgman Pottery" display bowl because it cracked in the bottom, but I need a bowl to fill with strawberries, radishes, blueberries- whatever is in season- for my sale displays.
I used to have a "no weekend working" rule for pottery, but I'm ready to get these bowls out the door. So I can make more. Really, I had no idea ya'll would like them this much. I'll be throwing more on Sunday or Monday, glazing more mugs and ladybug ware until Wednesday, then working on my sale postcard to mail out on June 2. I'll be at the Memphis Farmers Market again on May 31, so if you're in the Memphis metro area, stop by and say hello!
