You may have seen my asparagus trays in the past… I love those trays. It’s a fun form to make and really serves its function well. I wanted to make something for olives, so over the summer I kinda just shrunk the asparagus tray down. The size and scale really work well, and they are as cute as can be.

I found this short and beautiful film clip on YouTube recently and thought I’d share it! It it shows a little bit of India and how wood blocks are made, and used. It really caught my attention because of the beautiful filming, and the fact that I use these type of blocks in my clay work.
I have always liked to use pattern on my pots. Places I have found pattern have been as far-flung as a lemon zester, to old tap and die tools from a local factory. A couple of years ago a student of mine gave me some printing blocks from India. I have used them here and there. About a year ago I posted some asparagus trays drying, but never posted the finished product. Here they are again, with the finished product. I used the blocks for texture on the bottom inside.

Ok… so the Open Studio/Holiday Sale is over, and was a great success… now it’s time for that neglected etsy shop. Time, time, time… just need a lot more of it!
There have been some great reads on other potter’s blogs about etsy, namely John Bauman and Ron Philbeck . I really like the idea of etsy… it is just a new kind of work to me… taking lots of photo’s, being a little bit of a story-teller in describing my pottery, and last but not least, listing, and re-listing, and re-listing again. I think it’s just the learning curve. I will eventually do it with ease.
Take a look at my foodieceramics etsy shop here! I’m having a sale… FREE SHIPPING in the U.S!!

I’m making a new little baking dish with handles… it would make a great brie baker. Also making an old favorite… long serving trays with handles, and of course mugs! Here are some pics of them drying. I’ll hopefully have them glazed in two weeks.

The last kiln was fired before the sale this weekend… the pots are piling up. Tomorrow Pam and I start setting up for Friday!
I took a tea break and photo break today.
More pics to come tomorrow!
