Yes I am still carving stuff every once in a while :P I still have to paint some of the other vases. Below are the bowls I made for my grandma before being fired. I forgot to take a photo of them finished before I gave them to her, but frankly I like them better before... They didnt turn out bad, but the yellow of the petals was so pale that it really needed an outline. I suspected this before I fired, but I had just spent 6 hours painting pots, and I really needed to start the firing, so I did not outline them. They are visable, but looked more striking at this stage.
One of the other rushed Christmas projects were these little cups a coworker ordered. These were also painted with underglazes and fired in the electric kiln. I kind of enjoyed painting on the b-mix, I think they turned out pretty well!
Christmas kitties! Cinnamon and Sam sleeping in front of the tree :)
In case you were interested in the other forms of art I dabble in, here is an acrylic painting I did for a couple who I dog sit for. Their oldest dog, Maggie, passed away in December, so I made this for them. Its been forever since I've painted anything, so I was pretty pleased with out nice this turned out. I was mostly concerned with ending up with something that was recognizable as Maggie :)
