Giving Thanks

What a wonderful holiday weekend!  Some nice time with family and friends, a movie (The Muppets) with my husband and 3 year old, and lots of time working.  A few disappointments – two broken pieces, and one ruined by trimming too early – but mostly happy surprises in the kiln room. 
A finished piece!
And some new things getting started.  Into the studio again tomorrow to finish off a few more . . .
Hopefully a good start to a “back-to-normal” week! 

New Leaf

 Very exciting day.  Trying new things, a little nervous . . . but mostly just happy.  And feeling very lucky.

Some of the new pieces.  Pre-fired state.
