It doesn't take long for newly thrown, drying and bisqued pots to fill the available flat spaces in my studio. A couple of days of throwing and things are everywhere. I'm aiming for a firing in a couple of weeks, before the Arts Alive show on the Falmouth Library green. That's been the first local arts event of the summer for the past four or five years. A Saturday and Sunday of people filling the library lawn with art of all kinds and a similar variety of entertainment.
Right now I've got spouted bowls destined for Bill and Carmina Mock for their summer gazpacho. I originally made the pots as small kitchen mixing and pouring bowls, but Carmina, a native of Spain, bought some so that her guests could pour the gazpacho directly from the bowl into their mouths. Now they want more, so these will be in the next firing. Simple bowls with pulled spouts, but they sell well.
Also, an order for mid-size mugs from Dana's Kitchen, a small breakfast and luncheon spot here in Falmouth. Dana has used my mugs for a few years now, but needed more, so there are 25 here for her and more for inventory. Also, pasta bowls, both plain and faceted, vases, teabowls, etc. etc. ....
Back to trimming bowls now. Have a good weekend, everyone.
