Slow down, says the universe. Good things will come. See? It's January and here's the first four-leaf clover of spring!
So I sat down with my sketchbook. I got out the watercolors. I cleaned up in the studio and the kitchen. I made an enormous batch of meatloaf for my boys and for the freezer. I perfected my vegetarian version of meatloaf for myself ( meaty mushrooms, onions, garlic, bell peppers, spinach, rolled oats, egg, s/p, tomato paste, and any herbs you like ground until a meatloaf like consistency, packed into ramekins, and baked for 30 min at 375. not pretty, but then neither is meatloaf).
Then I fired some pots that were waiting and was really happy when I unloaded them and found this:
I will have some of these cups in the shop on Monday and will be making them throughout the month of February. Those that don't go into the shop will be ready for my very small open house on Feb 8. Very, very small: these cups, some honeypots, and a few trays.
I'll be back here on Saturday with this week's pitcher. I am mid-mishima with it and will be playing around with my new underglaze watercolors once it's bisqued.
Have a good rest of you week, friends.
