And even more pots

After this post I'm going to post about family stuff for awhile. I just unloaded the kiln and am so happy with what I took out. I don't have time to photograph it before spring break which technically started 1 hour and 50 minutes ago, not that I'm counting. The yard is calling me in a big way. My beds never got completely cleaned out in the fall so this spring they definitely need attention. I am slowing coming to realize that I don't make time for pots and flower beds every day or even every week.   So I'll probably not work in the studio much until after the garden is harvested in October. Yikes. So much is going to happen between now and then! It's a whirlwind of activity around here. And I love it!

This post features some handbuilt plates, tea bowls, and spoon rests.
The plates are new for me. This project was featured in a pottery magazine I read and 
I really loved how they were put together. I'm glad I made some.

Small (1/2-3/4 cup) bowls. These are awesome for dipping sauces, candies, ice cream, etc. So far the bowls in my kitchen that are this size have done a great job keeping some foods separate during dinner. Not everyone likes to have their foods touch each other.

Yay for spoon rests! I have a stack on my stove that spend half their time in the dishwasher because I use them so much.
