I recycled some clay last week from my slurry / scrap bucket and made my first platter with some of the clay today.

My dad called and one of the first things out of his mouth was "are ya busy?" I said "yes, I'm throwing stuff", well you can imagine where that conversation went, he thought I was literally throwing stuff as if I were having a temper tantrum lol. I love that :o)
I made some of these bowls several months ago for myself, they are smaller than a cereal bowl, maybe hold about 1.5 cups each. They are the perfect size for snacks and salsa and ice cream! yum :o) So anyways since I use mine so much I figured I'd make a bunch of them for my Etsy shop. I just trimmed the bottoms on these today.
I'm also happy to report I'm still off diet coke, it's been about 3 weeks, it took about 2 weeks for the intense migraine headaches that I was getting everyday to finally stop. I feel good and I've been told that my attitude has improved. I can tell you I feel less stressed out and much more focused. It's funny when you constantly pour caffeine into your system and then stop what happens to your body. I did make the mistake of having a large glass of sweet tea shortly before bed a few nights ago, which left me laying in bed wide awake, I won't do that again.
On another note, my poor sweet nephew broke his arm today on the playground, a fall from the sliding board earned him a spiffy new cast.
He'll be 6 next week, I'll have to think of something really cool to make for him. I just noticed my sister's time stamp on the picture is wrong, she's a day ahead.

A sneak peak at what's coming out of my kiln today.
Ninja dunk mugs!!
And of course those ninja plates I talked about previously for bad ass dinners ;o)
On another note, Christmas orders are coming in, now I really feel like a slacker. I don't Christmas shop until the last minute and I have customers that started months ago.

I quit diet coke, no particular reason, I just decided that I didn't want to drink it anymore. Today is day 4 and I have had 1 to 2 massive migraine headaches everyday since I quit. I also felt completely drained of energy, caffeine lag? Probably. Today I felt good, besides the headache, energy wise I was good. I'm on water now, much better for me anyways :o)
I loaded my kiln this afternoon and got it fired. I just have to share the greatest invention.
Plate stilts! I used them for the first time today and what a space saver.
I've been doing some hand building and fooling around with slab forms again. I'm pretty anxious to get this piece glazed and fired. When I look out of my studio window I have a view of several trees and a bush. I used leaves from those trees on this dish.
