Studio messes

@cheerfullymade has asked that we post photos of our studio messes. My work is all in the kiln now and most of my tools are clean (they rust if they don’t get cleaned immediately after usage) so here’s yesterday’s setup for glazing. I know it’s not the worst mess around, but what can I say? Mess in a ceramics studio = dust = health hazard.

Glazing, glazing and more glazing.

Glazing, glazing and more glazing. I have about 75 pieces dip, clean up and place in kiln before tonight! Yesterday I really thought I was ahead, so I made a few tests and now I’m late. Oops. But don’t worry people, all these pieces are going to be ready for Etsy: Made in Canada (Ottawa) this week-end.

Shopping in Verdun

Here I am on my day off, leisurely shopping in Verdun and still checking out pottery like an obsessive person! These two mugs are very similar in shape but the top one (by @not_madeinchina ) is nice and smooth with an interesting surface while the other one (mass produced) is gritty and must be incredibly annoying to handle and wash. Good design makes a huge difference.
