Pottery 6

I've glazed the nose pot, but waiting on it and one other item to be glaze fired. This will be my last pottery update, they've gone on long enough. Here are a few of my finished pieces.

The bear is a blue bear. My little ice cream cups are definitely different sizes. The plate looks nice. I made a bell this time around too. And my paint palette will work nicely.

Asian Cuisine

Our latest cookbook club was themed "Asian Cuisine" and it was delicious! I made a bento box-ish plate following a few recipes from 10-Minute Bento by Megumi Fujii and adding a mojo dog inspired deviled egg. It was my first time cooking dry soybeans and they took so long to make, but they did taste delicious. Here are a few pictures of things I ate:

Pottery 5

I was really hoping to have all my pottery stuff finished by post 6, but I have one thing that hasn't been bisque fired and so many things that have been waiting on the shelf for glaze firing for a week! So there may be two more posts about pottery, or I'll call it quits after the next one and eventually share my awesome nose planter when it is totally finished. Here are some pictures of the progress of some things I've made, I just realized I barely took any pictures!

Those were the only pottery pictures I took this week! Sculpting the nose, I love a big/interesting nose and am very excited to get this planter finished. If you have any suggestions for plants that should live inside, let me know. Spatter glazing, Tuesday I went in to finish glazing all my pieces, and tried something new. Mended paint palette; the glue job held through the bisque fire and I glazed it a plain buckwheat color, it should be better than my current plastic palette that needs to go to the garbage.

Cleaning Up the Garden

It's my last garden update for the year. I have been taking down the sunflowers, collecting seeds, and propagating the sweet potato vine! My new lavender plants and strawberry beds are doing great! I still need to put mulch down around them though. Here are some photos.

Pottery 4

I've finished my pottery classes and am now trying to get everything bisque fired and glazed. Here is the progress of some of the things I've made.

The poor little bear vase got a broken ear, but the repair should hold. A few of my things are totally done! I made a silly round flute that I need to learn how to play. I've also made some ornaments; I'm very excited to get these glazed! And my pie pan got some cracks on the side. I decided to glaze it anyway, but need seal the cracks or not use it as a pie pan.
