My fav pic with the cup all lined up 33 of them, I went through the base of the first one trimming... which i threw last sunday afternoon..
I was waiting to go out for a run after lunch but it just wouldn't stop raining... so as the moment took me i kept throwing and 34 cups later I was getting the feel for 4 dif shapes...across this week as they have dried I thought about how to handle them, they were always going to be large handles and I did consider a whole loop of clay but it just stood too far out from the form.. the answer take a slice out of the middle.. that break in the clay is a familiar handle and i like it more on some than others...
we'll see after the firing! these will be B7 my white standard glaze c9 and shino of course some of the dark clay will get slipped inside for some variation and maybe a dark slip inside some of the white ones!! who knows who i'll be channeling when the slipping time comes?? :))
While I'm waiting for some large images to upload just thought i'd share my lunchtime soup recipe..
The images are fairly large so a click should show you the real picture!
Curried Pumpkin Soup
1/2 large butternut pumpkin saute in a little oil first
about 1.5 litres water
2 ts chicken stock powder
D spoon ginger
D spoon of curry powder I use madras
ground black pepper and salt to taste
Cook on down until veg are tender, taste test and season accordingly and remove from heat.. while that's cooling I cook up some flat rice noodles 4 mins should do it in boiling water..remove and wash in cold water..
Wiz down the soup with a hand held blender and add the noodles..
And as you can see everything is under plastic i have about 10 teapots on the go plus all these cups drying the handles off slowly and 2 commissions waiting mmm better get to it!!
I'm also waiting eagerly so hear if my package has arrived at the blog show, The Campbell Gallery NC....hmmm should be there Monday i hope :))
