the large scallop dishes are the newest shop item. these scallop dishes totally represent my love for fancy little trinkets and the places we keep our most treasured small items. this scallop dish totally makes me think of marie antoinette and something she might keep her treasured little trinkets in. i don’t know why, but i love it!

this cobalt and silver design was my first attempt at silver leaf. man on man, it was tricky…..it didn’t go as well as the gold goes. i love the way it looks but it took some hard work, a lot of cursing, you know…the frustrated groaning. it took forever to clean the edges up and the adhesive just didn’t go on as nicely. what gives?! why is that gold so crisp and fine, but the silver is so messy?!
but i’m done complaining! i finished what i needed to finish!
i’m also never doing silver again. nope! i’m a gold girl! forever.
tomorrow is your last chance to win this gold plate! head over to treasures & travels for your chance to get it!

before i left manhattan, my college professor gave luke and i some of his equipment. his wheel is now the wheel i make a lot of my work on and now we’ve got his kiln up and running. in fact, instead of going out to some glamorous new year’s eve party, luke and i were staying up late, watching the west wing and turning our kiln’s temperature up every 2 hours. we were giddy with excitement! the kiln was packed as full as it could possibly be packed, and i felt like a kid on christmas eve who couldn’t contain their excitement for the morning. for the last few months i’ve been sending pots in several stages of process back and forth to work with luke, where they would squeeze my work in wherever there was room. because of relying on another person’s firing schedule, i missed some deadlines. i fell behind in my work, and i don’t want that to happen anymore. in fact it won’t happen anymore. because i have a working kiln in my basement, and i can finally fire on my schedule. thank you yoshi! thinkin’ of you….
