pottery happiness ....


oh joy .... i picked up three pieces of pottery today ... and i'm very happy with all of them ....

this is my favorite .... when i paint nests, i use loads of different browns ... but i just had two and a black in underglazes .... if i do this again, i'll mix up some of my own browns ... to get more variety and depth ...
for a view of where this is going to live for a bit, there's a good pic of it on flickr ... you can scroll over the pic and read notes ....

then here is a bigger, lettered platter ... and a smaller lettered platter ....
so which do you like best? which suits your home best? what did you do today?

like them all, but my fave is the smaller lettered platter. i like the funky diagonal you got going on there. :-)

see you there! said...

The one with the nest is So You. What fun to see something you do on canvas transferred to your pottery.

The last one is more me. That's a color we have a lot of in the Mt. House.

I like the middle one. I like the shape of it, and the kind of grunginess of the colored letters.

I've been doing nothing these days but nursing my bad back. But today I'm glad to be catching up again.

i love them all, but the nest one does stand out in the crowd.

today i had a a lovely chat with some of my senior friends from church, and toots fell asleep on my lap during the visit. the ones that live a bit far from their own grand and great grandchildren love seeing toots and always remark how beautiful, sweet, etc she is. and then i watered my gardens. a relaxing lovely day. thanks for asking!
