The last three days, I have concentrated on glazing and painting bisque-fired figures. This has somehow made me hungry for high calorie food. I am a bit concerned if I am going to be a piglet at this rate!
I have three tables for my ceramics. One is for making, another is for painting bisques; they are in my studio. The third one is for packing in my office.
My painting table has had these ones. A view of my painting table - yesterday.
The hair of this boy might become blotchy because I didn't mix enough colour at one go. I was making the colour under artificial light at night, so I couldn't tell the nuance of the shades. I guess he would need at least a second firing.
|They will be in my Etsy shop, if they come out fine.|
|This is how the heads were held.|
This afternoon, I started loading the kiln.

In our garden, there are so many flowers at this moment. I can finally enjoy them this weekend. We will put the garden furniture out.
|Oriental poppies -very early!|
|Our eating cherry have lots of flowers! But birds will have most fruits! :D|
This afternoon, I took Pearl the whippet for an ordinary walk around four blocks. At the farthest end, we were chased by a tom cat! Pearl became bonkers, and started barking at him. The cat made himself large by arching and putting all fur spread, and chased us! I ran away as I dragged Pearl who was ready to fight. Then when I looked back, the cat was behind us, still chasing us! And when I hurriedly crossed the road, he came to the closest corner of the other side, and did a wee! I picked up Pearl and held her as if she were a child (heavy and cumbersome with those long legs) and whispered her 'Don't make a mistake. That's not a cat, it is a tiger!'
