We Are Pouring Again!


It has been hectic around the house and in the studio since we returned from vacation and we have done very little mold pouring. When you leave the slip tub, hose, and nozzle full of slip for over two weeks it dries out and takes a lot of work to get it flowing again. I have poured a few small molds with a pitcher but cannot do the large molds.

Please remind me if there is something I am supposed to pour for you. And get that Christmas list together so we can start pouring what you want to make. I think we are caught up on trees except for the Football tree — Laura, Mira, Notre Dame order, and two for Robin. Oh, and one large spruce tree for Linda.  Anyone else?

New Carousel Venture

carousel-necklaceI do not intend to go into the jewelry business. There are plenty of others who do that. But I bought an assortment of carousel and animal charms so that I can make carousel jewelry. Planning on necklaces, earrings, and charm bracelets with colorful beads. Maybe even some bookmarks and keychains. We have horses, unicorns, zebras, lions, tiger, buffalos, rabbits, elephants, turtles, and seahorses. If anyone is experienced I could use some input. Jim asked if I was planning on having jewelry-making workshops. Hmm! Let me get some made first and then if there is an interest we can do a workshop. (This picture is similar to one of the carousel charms that I purchased. I am hoping to sell the jewelry online.)
