There's lots of pots in progress up here in the studio, lurking underneath plastic these days, waiting to get fussed over! These mugs were looking interesting under the plastic with some afternoon light pouring in my studio window. I've been really enjoying carving lately, so the pots are taking longer to finish because I'm playing out new patterns here and there, on new forms, too. Above is a larger, wide mug-to-be and below is a new mug fashioning a trimmed foot this time! I'm making all these pots for the quickly approaching wood firing in February. I have some upcoming deadlines for the very beginning of March. But there are still lots of pots to make! I need to get away from mugs and bowls and carving and soon be in jars, and vases and teapot land!
