So the first few things I've been throwing back at the wheel are some bowls. It's an easy warm up to begin with. These above are soon to be ridge bowls. I also played around with some new smaller porcelain bowls, trying each one a bit different to see what I like best later.
I've been gearing up for another snow event about to hit this weekend, predicted to be like the last one that was almost 2 feet around here. Today I was getting firewoood ready and attempting at cleaning up the yard and gutters from the last storm. But I was immediately distracted by finding these interesting things, broken off from a yucca plant. It's the freshest green thing I've seen for months! I've never really noticed what each blade is like underneath. I like how all the peeling layers of each blade come together at the base, like nestling bowls, as well as the creamy white tones tapering into yellow green to rich green hues. Hmm....inspiring item for the studio to ponder, no doubt.
A small surprise, but you'll take anything when it's January and you're craving spring!
