After Pizza Pottery

combed slip

The family and I went down to the local pizza joint, Pizzart, and joined in the pizza fun with the rest of Evelyn and Lillian's classmates. Pizzart's owners Chad Mohr and Jen Rambo were donating a percentage of last night's sales to the school, which is suffering financially in these recent times. Each Wednesday this month will be Spruce Pine Montessori night! Here's a link to donate if you would like to help out. No amount is too small! Maybe we'll see you next Wednesday night?

Well, after some pizza, I made my way up the hill through the crunchy refrozen mush of our yard and worked on more stencil deco and dipped some pots and then wedged about 100 lbs. of clay for tomorrow. Here are some pictures of tonight's fun.

inspired by some patterns posted at
Ben's pottery blog the other day. thanks Ben!

ready for my next twelve plates

I received a bunch of pictures of today's pottery challenge and will try to get them up in the a.m. after I help out with the morning snack at the school. There's still time to send in pictures of your bountiful productive day. Just email a jpeg to michael[at]klinepottery[dot]com.

Thanks for reading!
