Getting Back on Track

So, I’ve been a little neglectful of the blog lately. I forget to take photos when I’m doing something interesting in the studio. In a pitiful attempt to rectify this, I snapped a few photos with my iPhone in order to have something to show you. One of the newest additions to the studio is a drying table for reclaiming clay. Danny built it with a Hardie Board top, which is a near-perfect drying surface. I love this table!

It has casters and easily rolls out of the way, under one of our worktables, when it’s filled with reclaimed clay.  Once the clay is dry enough, Danny rolls it right over to the pugmill and processes it. So, what am I working on at the moment?   Have had several custom orders lately that have taken up quite a lot of time because I can’t get into production mode when I’m making so many different pieces .  Not complaining, though!  Here’s a pic of the wall crosses I’m working on…

Crosses 1

Haven’t yet decided on a finish for the crosses.  Need to think about that for awhile. In the meantime, I’m exploring designs for ornaments and some handbuilt slab pieces.  Made a neat handbuilt spaghetti holder that I’m hoping will fire tall enough to actually hold spaghetti AND have a cork top. The last one I made was about 1/2″ too short for the spaghetti.  Danny said it could be a macaroni holder instead.  I like the way he thinks.
