Windowsill planter

This is a new item for this year.  My friend in the building asked me to make it, and I like it.  I have been using it for growing scallions on my kitchen windowsill. This is a perfect.  Do you remember the red worm compost?  I am still doing it.  It is very slowly growing… Continue reading Windowsill planter

Adjustment

I lost a large piece during firing last September. That was my second piece of this shape I made. The first piece came out the kiln ok, but did show a sign of sagging. Second piece was collapsed during the firing, like you throw a bowl with lots of water for long time. Problem was… Continue reading Adjustment

New year.

January 8th, already. As my mother-in-law passed last summer,  I am skipping New Year’s greetings. This is more like Japanese thing, I think. I am back to the studio since January 2nd.

See, that why these doves flew toward the windows. I always… Continue reading Chimney checked

I sold my minivan on Sunday, workforce for my shows over 10 years.  It was a bit small for carrying around the pottery, but… Continue reading Frustrated

Can’t decide

Last time I move the studio, I declared I would quit the pottery rather than moving the studio again. Now I am seriously considering the home studio.  This hot summer was really hard on my body. Home studio has lots of advantages, saving rents, travel times and gas, more control over the drying process, not… Continue reading Can’t decide
