I have an appointment with the doc in an hour so I came in to get all cleaned up and ready to go. I have had a better day in the studio so far. I got some inspiration this morning and made some deep dishes that I haven't done in a while and guess what else....2 cruets. Ha. Cruets. Really these were made to try on some new spouts. I pulled the spouts on a dowel rod and made them fairly long and tapered. Easier than throwing them. I saw the technique a while back on a video with Jane Shellenbarger. Anyhow I haven't gotten them on the pot yet and it will be interesting to see if they fire and stay in place. If I like them when I get them assembled I'll post an image. I like this clay too, I used it a lot years ago. It has a nice tooth. Okay gotta go.
