Dinnerware and weeds.

I was once told that dinnerware doesn’t do well in woodfired kilns. I guess I forgot that. I finished trimming thirty six dinner plated today. I’ll make the salad plates and soup bowls starting tomorrow. They felt good. I like very much the repetitiveness of the process.

These plates were woodfired last year. I rather like the way the woodkiln finishes them. THe current bunch will be out of the kiln in time for our September 13 open house sale.
Lee and I spent some time weeding in the garden late this evening. It was really nice.

    I just found your blog-nice pots-even though just a picture I found myself wanting to pick them up and hold them.

    Dear Joe,

    I just had dinner two nights ago with Terry and Brooke Williams we send their love and blessings.

    We are delighted to see that you’ve made plates! We will be there for the open house show Sept. 13 and want 8:) Great excitement. We love the bowls and mugs and tea cups more and more each day. What a thrilling thought to complete the collection with your magical plates.

    Best to you and your family,

    Sarah
