First glazed pottery!

 I am so excited to have some glazed and ready to use pottery that I made myself! I love every single piece too. Each one is so different and has their own special look and use.

This is my scrambled egg bowl, just right for 2 eggs. And the color is Robin's Egg Blue. Can't really tell, but it is a bluish green color.




                                                 Here are the 3 pieces I glazed in this color.






Then I cannot remember what color these are. Some kind of green. I love the scalloped edges of the 2 bowls. I think Coryn,. my middle grand daughter, might get the bowl on the left. She really liked it.







The 2 little bowls in front are Oatmeal and then again, can't remember what color the other 2 are. I wish I had put handles on them to make mugs.







These look so much better glazed and all shiny, don't they?

I still have several mugs and 2 plates and more bowls to glaze. I went yesterday but had to leave to go pick up grands for music lessons. I want to have some time so I can concentrate and do more creative glazing. Maybe tomorrow.

And I have 3 bowls ready to get fired that I've made here. I will probably work on some more later today. I am working on tilling some flower garden spaces for the bees. And the market too. But right in front of the hives is where I'm working this morning. I'm going back out to rake up all the grassy things I just tilled up. Then I'll til some more, then wait a few days and then plant the flower seeds. I also want to plant more buckwheat for the bees too.

What's happening in your gardens these days?

Not much happening here in Michigan except for blooming bulbs and forsythia. But I just checked the asparagus bed I planted at my kids' house and there are tiny sprouts just emerging. I've never grown asparagus before so I'm excited they made it thru the winter. Can't cut any of it this first year so will have to be patient.

That's something I've always wanted to planted but still haven't. I love it fresh. I'm sure you"re way behind us here in Ga. But it will get there soon.

I love your egg bowl. I love robins egg blue, and I also love the edging on your two other bowls! So very pretty and I bet you could sell those like crazy at your stand.

I've always wanted to learn to make pottery, but will have to wait till all my other projects settle down.

Thank you. I have way too many things going on right now and then signed up for a sewing class. I don't know what's wrong with me. But all these things I can do here at home. It's just the traveling to the classes. I hope you get to take a pottery class. It's SO fun and worth it.
