Wind Chill

It's definitely cold out there but there's also the wind chill. I wish it would snow to insulate the ground and the plants. I made these several weeks ago and had forgotten to take photos. They're about four inches tall. I find myself wondering how I'll glaze them especially with the fragile additions. Yesterday I worked at ArtWorks and noticed two more items sold. I need to replenish my stock soon.

Here's another one of the vessels about ten inches tall. I almost put a handle on this one for a pouring vessel but instead I added two mini decorative handles. Today is my first class on caning a footstool. In the afternoon I'm signed up for a painting class. Might be too much for one day but I really wanted to take the caning class and at the last minute there was a cancellation so I got in. More about the caning class later.

Can you see the cold in the air? If you stand outside the wind will definitely let you know how cold ut is. I'm going to wait till the daytime temps rise a bit before firing. I'm really glad we enclosed the lower porch area. The southern exposure warms up the room during the day and the enclosure keeps my kiln out of the bitter cold. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.

  1. Yup, it looks like it's very cold in Georgia. It's cold here in Hawaii, too, dipping into the 50s.
    Your pottery looks nice.

  3. Those mini cups are really cute, and the tall vessel is nice with the curled handles. Yes, it looks cold, but what a view you have. 23 here in Austin with wind chill it's 14..brr. Wish I did not have to go out at all today.

    1. Hi Barbara, thanks, not sure I'd use them as cups but then again, I guess it's cold everywhere.

  5. I feel like I am back in NH! It's 13 degrees here at 10:15 am. A high of 27 is expected. Even with the wood stove and the gas heater going, it's only 62 degrees in the living room of this drafty log cabin. brrrrrrrrrrrrr.

  6. Lovely pots, and what fun doing caning! I used to have dining room chairs done with caned seats...beautiful and comfortable...but they only lasted about 5 years with little boys.
