I just recently finished a set of blue and green mugs… I’m calling it the “Earth and Sky” set, for an extended family member. Just a side note… these mugs were all done in the exact same glaze, and the intended color is the blue that you see. Just one of the inherent possibilities when you are dealing with many uncontrollable variables.
I haven’t been to pottery now for about 6 or 8 weeks… I’ve lost count. Yes, this is mostly due to the pregnancy. By the time I get to the evening, I’m just exhausted and the thought of trying to push around clay and interact with people is too much. It’s hard for me to concentrate on what I’m doing when I’ve got people chatting with me, since I’m very much a “stop what I’m doing and listen” type of person. (No… I can’t chew gum and walk at the same time either…) I am starting to feel much better and I’m hoping my energy will make a return as well, and then I’ll be right back at it. If not, I may just switch to a session earlier in the day (I may do that anyway…)
