I got a haircut this week…probably my last one for awhile, seeing as how my hairdresser works Tues. – Thurs. and I will be commuting to and from NY for my new job. I suppose I could try to find someone knew, but I love my hairdresser. She is the first and only one I have ever trusted and she does a fantastic job every single time! So, for now, I will let it grow until I can get to her again.

 

I worked on some fun DIY projects this weekend, including a Valentine’s Day shirt for my sister. I am really excited to share the other project with you – stay tuned for a tutorial this week!

 

My fortune from Chinese last night…It’s so true! But, fortune cookie, you’re a little late in telling me this because they’ve already begun developing!

 

I hope everyone has a great Monday! I am SO excited because tonight I’m seeing Ben Howard in NY with some friends! (If you’ve never listened to him before, please check him out. He is amazing.) I think it is going to be a fantastic show. He is so talented and I can’t wait to see and hear him live! I will let you all know how it is tomorrow 🙂

Wheel Throwing Update, Pt. 2

Last night was our last wheel throwing class. I can’t believe how quickly the past 7 weeks have gone by! I’m a bit disappointed its over because I feel like I was just getting the hang of throwing. Oh well…

 

Last night, all of the things we made were out of the kiln and ready to be glazed, so we spent the whole 2.5 hours glazing our pieces. I have to be honest, I hate glazing. It was the most frustrating class we’ve had. You have to dip your piece into the glaze rather than paint it on. You may be thinking, “how hard is it to dip a bowl into liquid?” Well, let me tell you, it is not as easy as you think! There are a number of complications that can arise, such as drips, missing small areas, and the glaze being too thick on your piece so that it just cracks off (yes, this happened on two of my pieces, one of which I completely washed off and brought home unglazed).

 

Anyways, the pieces were fired last night so they will be ready to pick up this weekend. In the meantime, here are a few photos of the unglazed pieces:
