A BLOG-Anniversary — Plate / Bowl / Chocolate Cupcakes:
It’s March!! It’s actually March!! And I’ve not posted in quite a while. I’ve been on hiatus? Unexpected hiatus.
Briefly — There were a few medical emergencies in my Husband’s family. Everyone is now recovering quite nicely. But for a while, we were needed for assistance, and support, and sometimes, more assistance. We’re so grateful that we could help out — And yes, we still have Riley-the-Dog, who belongs to Husband’s Mom.
And now — Back to Blogging…. I normally celebrate my Blog-Anniversary every January — But here it is, already MARCH. So it’s really time I celebrated SEVEN years of Blogging!! I’m finally, finally, finally ready to CELEBRATE, and offer a fun Pottery-GiveAway!!
To celebrate, I’ve baked a tasty batch of my Chocolate Cream-Cheese Wacky Cupcakes — Yummy, tasty, chocolatey (with NO frosting required)! And I’m presenting my delicious Cupcakes on some recently fired Plates and Bowls. Through all of this ‘unexpected hiatus’ I’ve managed to try out several new Glazes….
For quite a while, I’ve been wanting to find some ‘white’ glazes that please me. I feel like transitioning beyond so much soda firing (with color and design and pizzazz) to something more quiet. So far, I’m playing with a silky white glaze, that works well over a black slip — For some textured interest and geometric statements. Below — A new Rimmed Plate (full of Wacky Cupcakes), and a stack of Bowls.
