I love opening up the kiln on a glaze firing. This pendant's colors were so unexpected. The silvery sparkle where the glaze pooled is something I've never seen before. I hope I'll be able to replicate the results on something like a plate, but there are no guarantees.

Alex made this coffee mug for me to drink my coffee from each morning - unless he gets to it first! It is my new favorite coffee mug. It is big (about 20 ounces) and beautiful. Even better... it fits in the cup holders in the cars! And the glaze job, my part in this, is nearly as perfect as the form! Woo hoo!
The heat of summer makes autumn so enticing. Cool breezes, falling leaves, and a world bursting into technicolor are worth dreaming about. Remind yourself of autumn days with this lovely, side-drilled pendant, made be me and available here.

I just love my rocking bottle and the little handbuilt vase I paired it with. The rocking bottle is handbuilt with a thrown neck. Both pieces are glazed with a cobalt glaze that break to an olive green.

This past week and a little has seen the creation of the Etsy Mud Team, an online guild of potters selling on etsy. We are excited to be working with other potters in this venture. To celebrate our founding, we are having an inaugural sale!

In the past six months, I have bought a number of items from Muttsywonder on etsy that I really love. Her silk screened shirts are always perfect; I know because my whole family wears them! I even commissioned her to make me a cute tote bag with a trio of poppies on it. You can see what she has to say and get coupon codes on her blog or see her full line of work at www.harrilu.com.
