All my new little owls

I've finished the ornaments!
Super happy with them. I love how spooky and glazed-over they look in the right light. Now all I need to do is package them and ship them off to Art Star. Hope that everyone is doing well! I know there are a few shows that happened recently are about to happen (namely Renegade Chicago and Crafty Bastards in DC). Wish we could have participated this year, but our plate is just too full. Hope that the weather is fantastic next weekend for Crafty Bastards!

Well, it was what seemed like a long time without 'big kiln', but the new kiln arrived and I promptly broke it in:
She works great! I've been working like crazy, stocking up for the busy season and all the shows that go along with it. In addition, I've been making ornaments for the annual show at Art Star. The girls there are so sweet, and I was finally able to meet them this summer (it only took 4 years). Here are my owls in progress...
Top row are the bodies of the birds, and middle row are the head-feathers. Wings are on the bottom, all waiting to be ground down.
Shown above are all the little 'body parts'. I'm very pleased with them so far. Will show a photo of the final works soon. I love doing the ornaments--each one is different and it gives me a chance to take a break from the production line that the rest of my work sometimes feels like. It's like a breath of fresh air, just like this most recent wave of delightful Fall weather in New England.

Oh, sadness!

My kiln just died today. The "big" one--the one on the left.
I've had this kiln for 8 years now, and it's been with me through 5 moves across the country, from SF to MT to LA to now Boston. I knew she wouldn't last forever, but I'm a bit sad to see her go. I've been meaning to get a new one anyway, I just wasn't expecting it to happen so suddenly.

R.I.P., big kiln! It was a good run.
