This is a coffee pot that I made last semester. I used my red stoneware Death Valley clay and painted white porcelain slip on it for decoration. I listed it on Etsy… https://www.etsy.com/listing/106183472/coffee-pot-with-cute-carved-trees
It’s a hazed-over day, and I don’t have the energy to pack. Yes, I am excited that they day is finally here that I could just pack up all of my things and be moved into my apartment by Tuesday, but there is so much to pack. I found out that I will have my very own WALK IN CLOSET! That makes me happy. Also, 3-4 cupboards to myself to store my personal pots, and I only have to share the entire fridge and freezer with one roommate instead of five. I have a good feeling about the place, even if it does turn out to be a dump. I will figure out how to make it nice… pictures on the wall, maybe an extra table, and I could maybe even figure out one of those wall frame things to hold mugs and spices 🙂 that would be nice to have all of my favorite mugs right in front of me and ready to grab. I do that here, but I just end up setting all of them on the counter in a crowded mess. I don’t know why they never make it into the cupboard again after I wash them– wait, I know. It’s because there’s no room for my stuff at all. Ha, my new place is gonna be an improvement.
I’m not promising myself anything I don’t have control over– I can’t say that my roommate will be totally awesome, and I can’t say that I will find some great guy by going to a cafe regularly, but I can hope for the best 🙂 The only thing I can know will be better for sure is that I can walk to the studio any time I feel like it, and I won’t have to work retail during the school year– save for the chili bowl sale (and there will be many other helping hands). I can’t wait to finally fire all of the pots I have been making this summer… I probably even have enough to fill a bisque all by myself right now. The last time I did that was the beginning of the semester in January, when I had to bisque 50 bowls because I was intent on firing them all in the same kiln a few days later and nobody else even had work to bisque yet. I filled it up just perfectly, so I didn’t put anyone else’s pots in it, and I didn’t have extras that wouldn’t fit.
Back to campus I go! 😀
