Over the next day or two I'm going to be moving this blog to my new site at
I really hope you'll come along with me.
Please update your blogrolls too.
And tell your friends!
I'll be keeping a blogroll on the new site so I'll take you all along with me too. (I'll get all that info added today or tomorrow).
All the content from this blog has been imported to the new site. So you can still go back in time there if you want.
I'm looking forward to having more content as well as my own URL. I think RonPhilbeckPottery.com is an easier thing for my customers to remember than PottersJournal.
I'll have my Etsy site there too.
Okay, so come on over. I'll have my last post here on Jan. 1, 2009.

Thank goodness the sun has finally decided to come out again. Blue skies, Yea!
Well, all the family have left. It's been a long Christmas for the Nantz family (Sarah's side). I am looking forward to doing some healthy eating this week and getting back to some sort of normal routine.

A few images to keep you going till I get back to work in the shop. That roasting dish I am esp. fond of. It's sold now so I'll have to make some like it soon.
This is the jar from the video that I posted a while back. It turned out fairly well (except it has no bottom....oops! Ha.)
The beaver has been at it again.

I had some questions about what tool I use to draw with. I use this Kemper wire tool.
I modified one by cutting the end off of and gluing it into a bamboo handle. It's a little larger in diameter than the original handle and also longer. I find it easier to hold and use.

Christmas Eve, wow I can't believe it's here already. I've got a few gifts to wrap but I'm not feeling too much pressure or stress. I'm glad for that.
Loaded a bisque this morning. Some last minute things that will go to family this weekend.
Sarah shot some images of me drawing on pots this week. I always love seeing process, so I hope some of you like seeing these.
Today I did a bit of painting on cups with underglazes. That was fun and I'll be curious to how they look when finished. It was nice to see the colors on the pots. Who knows where that will lead.
Well that's it for now.
