HobbyPotter ep1.2 Way Back to Productive Pottery - Cleaning & Glazing (by hobbypotter)

Making the decision to become productive again was 1/2 the battle and it felt easy making the pottery studio useful again!

I spent quite a bit of time shipping the remaining cups this week and loved hearing how much people loved receiving them. There are still free cups available (all you need to do is pay for shipping) If you would like a cup here are the details :http://hobbypotter.com/sale.htm.  

Spent a good 5 hours specifically cleaning the studio and once everything was in its place the itch was back to making things (Okay…honestly as soon as I was done I threw a nice 3 pound bowl on the wheel..hee, hee, I just couldn’t wait! )! 

Now that it’s clean I’ll spend the next week coming up with a game plan…a  ”Why” I’m doing what I’m doing, then start putting that plan into action and get some clay pieces cranked out. Bit by bit I’ll get into a system that works with the rest of my life :) No more random happenstance, throwing sporatically. I want to learn, grow an improve with clay! 

NEXT WEEK! - THE PLAN & BACK ON THE WHEEL! 

Warm Regards to all!

NEW Ceramic Project -Kate’s Butterfly! - A.R.K - Art Restores Kids (by hobbypotter)

Back from an illness break to work on this wonderful new project..so excited!!!! The Stanislaus Family Justice Center had a call to artists for their A.R.K (Art Restores Kids) program. Artists are to chose pieces of artwork make by children in their therapy workshops to donate and create an inspirational piece which will help raise funds for these wonderful programs. 

I selected 2 drawings Kate-9 “Butterfly Project” & Liam 7 - “Monster in Me” which I felt moved by. This video introduces both projects, but only shows the making of “Kate’s Butterfly”. 

I’ll keep you posted on the auction / sales info! 

I hope you enjoy and thanks for watching!!
