Here's a few things from the latest firing. It's been tough finding the time to stop and take pictures A lot of pots have been unloaded from the kiln and directly transported either to Riverside Artists Gallery or River City Farmer's Market. The following are at the gallery but I do have a few of the mugs at the farmer's market. I also have other tiles and jars at the market and hope to get a firing done this week, so more to come for you last minute shoppers.
You may have seen these tiles in progress in a previous post.
The last of the owls. These were spoken for before even leaving the house, but I wanted to show the packaging. I used paper mache boxes and made a nest with some grass-like material I had at hand. The burlap strip folds over the owls and a descriptive note is tucked inside. The owls are small- about two and a half inches long, but surprisingly time-consuming to make. Really, it was the painting that took much longer than expected. I priced them at $35.00 each. Most people, not realizing the time involved, would think that's a lot for such a small item. This is why I felt they needed a special presentation and written note. Besides, I think they deserve their little nests.
