For fun I thought I'd switch up the stripes on my vase in the last firing, just to see what I thought. It might be something I work with a few of my glazes- I also thought I might work on some colour pairing instead of the white. That's the one thing that's great about my glazing method- I'm never limited to things being one way, even though I admit that once I find a way and a combination that works, it can take me a while before I'll be willing to try something new. After pulling out hundreds of these vases from the kiln this summer I've been ready for something 'fresh' to lay my eyes on!
We are heading out of town for a wedding this weekend. It's up in the mountains, about an 8 hour drive from Vancouver. We won't be taking the boys (thank you Grandparents!!), but Dean is involved in the wedding so it will be busy but possibly a good little break for both of us. I'm hoping to get some much needed rest so I can start feeling like I have the energy to get back to finishing all the work I've started all summer. What a good feeling it will be when it's all finished!
