Kissed By The Flame

Some pots are quiet, they don’t speak of carving or imagery. This one didn’t even speak of glaze colors or designs. Sometimes it’s a good idea to listen to the quiet. That would probably have been a better name for this post, maybe it’s the name of the vase. With nothing but a spearmint liner glaze, this piece was placed in the soda kiln. It’s about 11 inches tall so it was put in the top with a sculpture and a few other tall pieces. The soda and the flame did the decoration.

The vase is still very quiet but I think it came out well. I’m pleased with the painting the soda and flame did.

Being Watched

Have you ever had the feeling you were being watched then you look around and you see that indeed, someone is watching you?  It's a bit weird how that works but it frequently happens.  Like the other day when I went to the Penland garden to try to get some good pictures of these sunflowers.

Deer In The Garden
When the feeling of being watched got strong I looked around and noticed a deer standing a ways behind me.  She let me take her picture then flicked her tail and rain back into the woods.

Meatless Monday blog posts will return after Labor Day weekend, in the meantime I started a new, one week class at Penland School of Crafts.
