Things have been movin’ and a grovin’ in the studio for the past week or so. Already have 2 glaze kilns fired and the 3rd one went on this afternoon….that was after i had loaded it and then had to unload it because i realised i’d put decoration on a tea-pot that was meant for an order that didn’t want decoration – i realised this at the very top of the kiln, where the teapots were to go…and the lid was, of course, at the very bottom of the kiln!!! After a mini tantrum and a small amount of self berating, i reloaded it… actually the reloading wasn’t that painful and didn’t take too long!
There is probably another 1 or maybe 2 kiln loads waiting….but things are moving along very nicely, mostly due to the wonders of the computerized kiln….have I mentioned how much I love this piece of equipment!!! Apart from being computerized it takes half the time, which means i can get twice as many kilns fired in the same amount of time!
These are the new Sushi sets….there are 3-4 different plate shapes, each comes with 2 small dipping bowls, 2 sets of chopsticks, and will retail from $55 – 69. Seen here are the Cream Gloss and Floating Blue glazes, they will also be available in the Celadon glaze.
This is the oval platter, which retails for $65.00, and the new espresso cup and saucer set, which will retail at $28 a set.
Just a reminder that we have gift certificates available, for those folks you have a hard time deciding whether they’d like a teapot or a serving bowl!

Seems like we’re finally getting that winter storm we have been promised. It’s been snowing since around 2pm. But just to underline how mild this November has been, here’s Terry out fishing, at Englishtown beach, just last week!
and he actually caught a couple of fish!!!
