Bike Plates

Biking is a popular activity in the Kootenays and I’ve had fun using “stamps” to make bike plates.

Firing the Kiln

I love my new kiln,  but because it is larger than my old one it takes me longer to fill it especially for a bisque firing. It’s now loaded and I hope to fire it this week. There are 4 more very full shelves below this one.  IMG_1146

Bowl with Spreader

I’m always on the look out for wooden spreaders, honey dippers and spoons to use as accessories with my pots. I was excited when I found this wooden spreader in the book store in Rossland yesterday. It’s made by a crafter in Castlegar.

Bowls, Bowls, and More Bowls

I am quite pleased with how these bowls turned out.  I have been experimenting with different glazing styles and am very pleased with the colorful design of this first bowl.
