What I'm working on in the Studio this week

                                          I am going to try an all white, plain embossed line of ware.
                                           these are the mug patterns I am trying.
                                         Small square and triangle dishes.
                                           Their little feet.
                                            Square soup bowls,
                                          And their little feet.
                                          Side view of the large rectangle servers.
                                          Insides of the servers. Below here are some long side servers,
                                          about 4" wide 10" long.
                                         This is what is left after the last lot was taken to the Art Gallery.

The Mug Roll

These are the mugs that I have on hand right now.
                                          This is what I am calling Antique Blue,  I was trying for the
                                           light green that I had been using but since I mixed that one haphazardly,
                         and hadn't taken notes,  and once it was all used up, I haven't been able to reproduce it .
                                          But, I have kept notes for this blue, which I like a lot.  I will
                                          continue to look for the green, my last test went brown, but
                                          I am closer.
                                         There are 2 of these left though I think I will go with the pattern
                                          on the next 2 brown ones for the shino series
                                           This is the pattern I will use for the bowls and plates in brown shino glaze.
                                          This is the copper green pattern,  I always need to have some green.
                                         I have 4 of these Bees&Birds&Flowers, they are a little
                                         shorter but wider.  they are only's, not going to repeat these.
                                           I have no idea if my finger tips give scale or not
                                           This is a new glaze that I am working on, a kind of turquiose.
                                           There are only 2 of these left.
                                          This is the Retro Red that I had tested.  there are 2 of these.
                                          This is the black and white, there are 3.  I used the same pattern
                                           as the turquiose. It is one of my favorite patterns.
