There’s a lot going on this friday: work in progress, colorweek…I’ll post my color pictures later today, maybe even tomorrow. They are all from a walk we went on last night. There was red everywhere…but this picture is from a little clay time at home this morning. Stoneware buttons are coming, slowly…
In the end, it was only Emma who finished something. I gave her some clay to work with and she fashioned several different things–a turtle, a rock, and finally settled on a bird’s nest with "four eggs that the mommy lied" (that’s how she says it, everything "lies babies" around here.) Now the nest is out drying in the sun. I think I’ll fire it and glaze it for her. She also took this picture for me, even turned on the camera, put it in macro and turned off the flash, with only a little guidance from me. I don’t think my mom can even do that yet with her digital camera! sorry, mom.
Happy Birthday to my Dad…I’m off to work on some consumable gifts for tonight’s big affair…Love you, Daddy.

Great photo Emma!
Have a happy weekend!
Looks like a good day! Must be so nice to have your hands in clay again.
How exciting to be getting your hands into some clay again. Congratulations on gettting into the workshop! I’m sooo excited to see the new things you’ll be making, and to get a few buttons from your shop, too! Have a great evening!
I love hearing about you and Emma working with clay together, and I can relate to the “Emma’s” being the only ones who get things done when working with their moms! Can’t wait to see your new things, I know I need some of your buttons!
i am so happy for you being able to get more and more hands-on-clay time. i had to go on hiatus when i was pregnant with our twins and now they keep me so busy i haven’t been back to my co-op studio in almost 2 years. someday, though. you’ve given me hope!! in the meantime, there are many other craft that can be done closer to home and in intervals, eh.
and i so hope to buy one of those cuffs!!!!
