and still going!
Today is the hubster and my 15th anniversary so I figured that this pseudo-macro shot was most fitting. We actually renew our vows each year (typically in a fairly low key manner, although there was a trip to the Little White Chapel Drive Through Tunnel of Love in Vegas one year), and have since our first anniversary. Without going all mushcake, I'll just say that I am very very lucky!
I can't believe it's been weeks since my last post...or maybe I'm really not that surprised at all. I took on what turned out to be a much more involved project than I anticipated...refinishing our kitchen cabinets. It took 5 weeks of 6-10 hour weekend days but I'm finally done and my stress level has decreased exponentially! I didn't realize how much it would bother me to have everything in the kitchen cabinets open and visible while I worked on the doors, but the clutter drove me crazy!
For the past 9 weeks I've also been taking a terrific ceramics class at a local university...it's my first time throwing on a wheel so I am definitely still very much in the beginner stages but at least things that I've made are worth hanging on to or gifting instead of smashing!
This gorgeous color came from a fortuitous mix of two red glazes (although the second red is actually more purple in my opinion) but unfortunately there's a little pinhole at the bottom of the bowl where the glaze didn't flow back in after it bubbled.
I seem to be most effective at making little jars/pots like these...
of course the only thing I really wanted to make is a giant coffee mug! Maybe after the next round of 9 weeks I'll come away with one!
Now head on over to Studio Waterstone and check out all of the lovely close up shots from this week!
