I just opened the mini kiln, and welcomed 8 new cups to the world.
Some of the cups are decorated with an experimental woodcut transfer process.
This is a significant firing, because it is the FINAL FIRING for this season. I won’t be making any more pottery until Summer 2023.

First time I’ve been in on the wheel for 2023. (yes, this is my idea of a wild and fun friday night)
I’ve been working removing pots from the wheel with my hands-instead of using bats. Still smooshing some of them, but getting better!
Will trim and add handles tomorrow. Hope you all have a great weekend!
The new year isn’t starting out the way I had hoped.
Spent the day making screen print underglaze transfers based on two of my block prints, only for them to be a disappointment. Oh well, will try again another time.
Hope your year is going better than mine!
Sorry for being a crybaby earlier when my project did not work on the first try. In my experience, neither pottery OR printmaking work perfectly on the first try. Not sure why I thought combining the two would be easy.
After a little more practice, The transfers are a little bit better. Will make more pots and try again later. Thanks again everyone for the encouragement!
