Thank you, thank you for the teacup love. More are coming.
This pile of bisqued pottery is the first half of a dinner set that a local customer ordered. It's a set of 8, so I made 10 of everything to give a margin for error. The plates were the biggest stress point for these, but I threw 2 at a time over a few weeks and they turned out well, I think. They're smaller than commercial dinner-size plates, maybe 9" in diameter. Luncheon or breakfast sized. I still don't plan to make plates as a rule, but it was really nice to get these done.
Today I have an acupuncture appointment, more babysitting workmen, more glazing, hoping for no snow, and hoping to go to an art opening tonight. Tomorrow I'm going on a silent day retreat. I'm excited about that. Excited about quiet? You bet.
Have a lovely weekend, everyone!
