It seemed like nothing much was happening around here. Except things were happening. Just not apparent until almost too late! Whew. (Burning brakes, burning electrical outlet, burning mad at a building inspector.) Now life is back to the normal... not much happening here.
Now I'm scratching away as fast as I can! Doing some free-hand sketching (doodling) on some porcelain jars. It has been hot here. It kept me busy spritzing all the fresh thrown porcelain pots and lids. Covering them up and turning them around as if incubating eggs. I prefer to sgraffito on a leather-hard surface. It takes a little time. Some of the jars are nearly bone dry now. I wanted to do a little carving along with the sgraffito, but I will just settle with scratching. The more I doodle the more I want to do more elaborate designs. I am thinking I need to throw a big jar! Maybe that's next? For now, I need to concentrate on getting these gem jars done. Quickly.
Apparently there is nothing that cannot happen today.
