Works-in-Progress Wednesday (04/19/17)

What are you working on this week? I've been trying to knock it out of the park yesterday and the day before (and will today) because I have a feeling Thursday and Friday aren't going to be very productive. In ceramics, I have a bunch of owl mugs coming up soon! I had wondered, a few weeks ago, why owl mugs weren't really selling any more, and huh... it turns out that's because I had a whole passel of them that weren't painted! oops! Hahaha. So, I'm painting them all. I'm also working on the May mug, and already have...

What are you working on this week? I've got a little bit of everything going on! In ceramics, I'm doing a lot of slab-rolling this week. I think I've finally got that pizza plate thing worked out, and I'm having fun playing with - er, I mean, working with - all those wooden slump forms That Poor Man cut for me a few weeks ago. I have decided to work on some lines, and - perhaps obviously - the first line will be a Marie line. That was the doily I started with, so it seems fitting! So expect, maybe...

What are y'all working on this week? I should be all about the soap this week, but I feel like I'm all about the changes, instead. (Side note: I am still working on soap, though!). In ceramics, if you read my blog post Monday, you know I've been evaluating how/when I work/release new things. So I've started working on a slew of pieces of what I call "The Marie Collection" and I should have those done and ready to release by the end of May. I'm really excited about it and can't wait to see all these pieces together! Let's...

What are you working on this week? I'm having one of those weeks where I'm not feeling very productive. In fact, I'm almost the opposite of productive -- I feel like I'm backsliding! In ceramics, I'm having one of those weeks when I feel like I can't get anything to come out right so maybe I should just hang it up and go flip burgers for a living. These pizza plates are killin' me, y'all! I made the one for my friend Sharon last year, by request, and other people who saw me working on it wanted some. It was...

What are you working on this week? I'm all ceramics and yarn this week... In ceramics, it would almost take less time to tell you what I'm *not* working on! I've started  playing around with the form I'm going to try out for the April mug... I'm still playing with trays and plates from those slump molds That Poor Man cut for me the other week... I've had a glaze firing, a test tile firing, and am loading up the kiln for another glaze firing (hopefully tomorrow). I finally "finished" the new knitting/crocheting mugs... and I use that term loosely...
