I spent the morning outside doing some gardening and playing with Dudley. Then I "refreshed" some of my glazes and started unloading the kiln. I guess it's dinner and then glazing for me tonight. I haven't had cable for about 7 years now. I was never really a TV person. Sure, I love my Seinfeld and Simpsons, but I have the DVDs. When we are at parties or out at one of Jon's shows and someone mentions just about anything pop culture it's a big "huh?" from us. So we don't know much about what's on TV but we borrowed the first season of Dexter from a friend and watched 4 episodes last night. Now all I want to do is NOT glaze and watch the DVDs all night...a big reason to NOT have cable.
At least I got some new work posted. Like the next bird dish...in pink!

After packing and shipping all morning, I'm going to post this guy in my shop...My new green is on this one, although you can't really see what it really looks like on the gray porcelain. It's glossy like the rest of my glazes, which is a quality I was going for. My "old" green has a bit of a satiny, faintly bumpy texture which was fine when I had other glazes that had that finish, but now I don't. The green is in a similar family as my other green but it has a bit more lime and a little less avocado....but over my gray porcelain, the new green looks VERY retro avocado.
Okay, off to post and work.

I couldn't get a good shot of it for some reason...maybe my total lack of photography skills had something to do with that. Anyway, this is my new blue. I still don't know what to call it. It looks different on the gray porcelain than on the white, much richer. I still might lighten it up a bit. I think I want a paler version.
Okay, I'm off to relax. My upper body is killing me from my bench presses yesterday. I hope it's better tomorrow for all the throwing I'm going to do...

This one is sold, but I will be posting more of these bird bowls this week so be on the lookout. My other bird bowls...dishes really...came out just like I had hoped. I'll post some pics tomorrow. I'm soooo happy with them.
I also got a lovely message from Sydnei, from SimplySentimental, this morning to inform me that she featured my green chick on her blog today. Thanks Sydnei! She also included something from Modern June, who's oilcloth aprons and tablecloths are perfectly practical and totally cute.
