Glaze flow detail to die for.... 🀩 Two of the set of 3 bowls who were in one of my earlier posts. Hopefully I'll get chance to photograph them all next week 😊

Who loves candles? πŸ™‹β€β™€οΈ I do especially as the winter nights draw in. They give such a feeling of warmth. This pair of tealight holders are now finished and available so if you'd like them then please give me a shout..... πŸ”₯πŸ”₯

#traumatuesday is that a thing? Well I've just learnt another lesson. When throwing lovely thin walled bowls be really careful when dip glazing using tongues. Don't lift out too aggressively when it's heavy and full of glaze because the wall can't take the pressure πŸ€¦β€β™€οΈπŸ€¦β€β™€οΈ oh well. I'm going to be trying a slightly different firing schedule so this will be a test item. Then again it's a perfectly even shape to rest your spoon or chopsticks or even knitting needles in πŸ€” a #newdesign perhaps? 🀣

You may have noticed in one of my earlier posts some wierd looking bowls going into the kiln. Well this is the end result. After a lot of cursing, swearing and fiddling I completed these 2 custom 'eat-slow' dog bowls. I will admit that they're not perfect but the second one is better than the first so if I have the pleasure (?!!) of being asked to do another then the evolution should continue. I'm waiting to get feedback on whether they do the job. This product testing will be invaluable if I find myself getting another request down the line so I'm waiting with baited breath if my design works 😊

Happy Monday! Another tumbler here for you on #mugshotmonday. I absolutely love all these fall photos, so you are going to be seeing a lot of them, and based on the stories survey, everyone here seems to like them too! I'm still figuring out how I want to take more photos so that I can show off the pots from all dimensions. When I get that figured out, I'll share them!

How do you prevent yourself from setting expectations too high? It's something that we face on a daily basis especially if you're a golfer like me! It's especially true when you play with clay. Some pieces put your hopes and expectations higher than others. The trepidation and excitement that you open the kiln with and then the crushing disappointment or happy dance that follows. This is one of the things that I love and hate about pottery. Often it's the items that you expect less from that fill you with joy. I really hope that when I next open the kiln it will be this set of bowls, that I have high hopes for, that make me do a happy dance. Wish me luck and may the kiln gods be kind. Watch this space 🀞🀞

The nights are drawing in. The weather is rubbish. What does that mean? A treat from @wildgraceflowers Drawn curtains. Lit candles and general hibernation 😁

My spoon, teabag, whatever rests are complete 😊 whilst I enjoy trying to make beautiful functional pieces, I also enjoy having some fun with them too. If my sense of humour isn't aligned with yours then remember that I can put your own words on 😁

On Tuesday I delivered a pottery order to Arowhon Pines, by canoe and with my Mom in the bow. This may have been most memorable delivery to date! Wednesday wasn't quite as fun, changing kiln elements, but it feels good to have that chore done.

Finally a sun bowl!! 🌞 And honestly, this one feels a little bit special! Because it took a while to get one finished. The ones before always broke - one on the way to the firing and another two while trimming. . . . . . . . #keepgoing #shinoglaze #glaze #pottery #ceramics #handmade #wheelthrown #nevergiveup #contemporaryceramics #functionalceramics #claylove #clay #stoneware #potteryoninstagram #instapottery #pottersonig #pottersoninstagram #ceramicstudio #modernceramics #ceramicsart #ceramicartist #carinareverie

This is not an elaborate flower arrangement, and these mums are not exotic beauties, but they brighten my room and lift my mood. They are kind of like comfort food for your eyes. πŸ™‚

Friday night and my kiln is on for a bisque fire. Certainly an eclectic mix in there with a number of items being custom orders. Mainly pumpkins & dog bowls including a design that I've never tried before. I'll hopefully be able to show you something different soon as I'm aiming to get busy and have a couple of ideas to try 😁 I'd be delighted to hear yours.....

I'm currently away from the studio but when I return these little beauties should be dry and ready to go into the kiln for their first firing. One thing I have learned is how items that you've made with one job in mind are seen by someone else for something different. At my recent craft fair I not only had a lady purchase a spoon rest for her used teabags but another lady wanted one to mix her spices on and then easily pour out. So to try and make these spoon rests as dynamic as possible I thought I'd try another slogan. I've no doubt the possibilities are endless! 😁

For the first time in a very long time Nick and I were able to go work on clay things together in the studio! It was so refreshing to get back to it, and throw together while chatting. However, it means I'm tired as hell today, and I want as much coffee as I can get! This mug is a perfect way to do so, since it hold 18 fluid ounces and has super cute bluebell flowers on it! Hopefully your Wednesday is as full of caffeine and kitty cuddles as mine is!

One of the reasons I enjoy pottery so much is because it gives me an opportunity to make and give something personal to people that I love or to produce something so that others can do the same. I did this spoon rest/tea bag holder for my partners sister who got married a couple of weeks ago. So good to see it in use 😊 Congratulations Bex and Will it was an amazing day πŸ’•

A keepcup similar to this one got me into making ceramics! πŸ’›βœ¨ I found it in a cafe while traveling and knew that I had to make my own.

Wonderful to meet Sandy Brown and see her vibrant work first hand.What an inspiration, a concophony of colour and pattern and freedom in such expressive work of quite some size. All created In her gas kiln built to accommodate her love for large pieces, ceramics often constructed in pieces later assembled. #pottery_lovers #potteryclasses #potteryoninstagram #potteryartist #peoplewhopotter #ceramiclife #ceramicoftheday #clayprojects #claycraft #clayiscool #ceramicsofinstagram #ceramicstudio

Oh dear I'm not sure what this says about my mood. Whilst making holes in tealight holders I had an urge to carve out BAH HUMBUG. I'm now intrigued to see how it turns out and if it works. Does this appeal? If you had a choice what would you have carved out?

Once upon a time, I hated throwing rings. They annoyed me. They looked like imperfections or rough mistakes. Fortunately, I've learned to embrace their hand crafted beauty; to see them not as marks of damage, but marks of life. They say, "A living, breathing being made touched this. It didn't come from a machine or a factory or a mold. It was squeezed and shaped by someone who is themselves little more than a lump of clay and a bit of the breath of God." Which is pretty cool. #throwingmarks #wetclay #thrownbyhand #throwingrings #potteryoninstagram #handsofthepotter #beautymark #afternoonlight

One of the few things I love about the nights drawing in is the excuse to light candles. When I did that this evening I realised how organic my mantelpiece is looking. All handmade items by myself, crafters in Gambia and my wonderful little owls by the super talented @simongriffithssculpture

Dusty is certainly turning into a studio cat. Whilst I'm waiting impatiently for the kiln to cool she's taking the opportunity to find a cosy warm sleeping spot. I think I prefer her approach but it would probably be a bit uncomfortable for me under there πŸ˜‚Where do your furry companions like to hang out?

Tomorrow marks another year! Actually quite a few years! I will have made forty trips 'round the sun. And I'm not upset about it. My life has been abundantly blessed, (pressed down, shaken together, running over). I know I quote that last part a lot. It was one if my Paw's favorite verses, and he used to quote it all the time. Maybe all those times he said it we're actually speaking blessings over my life. That's how it feels these days, these sweet, rich days. To celebrate, I'm doing a super quick giveaway! So here it is! This chocolate pumpkin mug is up for grabs! To enter, comment below on this Instagram post and tag someone else who would like this mug! That's it! I'll draw tomorrow at 5:00pm EST. Also, just for extra, I'm running a short birthday sale in my Etsy shop. Free shipping when you spend $40.00 or more.
