I haven’t done much hand building in the pottery studio before, but out of frustration with the wheel I made these vases just before Christmas.
I picked up the frog stamp at a craft fair in December. It was made by Laurie Kanester. I bought a couple of rubber stamps from her and have been using them regularly in the studio.
It was a great weekend here on the west coast, we were lucky enough to have an open schedule and calm waters. Saturday, we headed over to Pender Island, staying at Poets Cove. It felt like we had the resort to ourselves. For $30 a night we enjoyed the gym, pool, hot tub and restaurant, and we had the boat to gently rock us to sleep. Here’s some photographs from the weekend.
