Al Fresco / Ce Soir

Starting to make some organic shapes...

When I arrived home after the usual staff meeting, it was toasty hot in my shed/studio. So, I decided to work al fresco on the patio. I found these large jars from a container sale. They are Hungarian, and each jar has a beguiling number eight molded into the bottom. I'm working on some organic shapes that will fill the containers. Work was very stressful today. Sitting in the backyard, after a dog walk, making giant beads, was just the ticket. I still have many more shapes in my mind, that I want to add to the jars.

I also bagged up some dried clay chips. We are going to work on our first clay slab project on Friday. Hopefully, I can just store the slip, and use it all year. It is going to be fantastic to work in a room with a sink! Now, off to grade papers. Oh, an employee who is tardy almost every day (I am almost an hour early each morning), said to me in a snarky voice, as I was heading out to my car, "It must be nice to be done for the day." Unbelievable… Spelling tests and math quizzes await!
