Snow!


If this doesn't put people in the mood for Christmas shopping, nothing will! We've had out first big snowfall of the season. Big one. Lots of snow and still snowing. I have no idea how much, but it looks to be about a foot deep in the ruts my hubby left in the driveway when he left this morning. It's soooo pretty. I will admit to loving the snow, especially when it's undisturbed...no mucky dirty bits, just that lovely white blanket enveloping everything and the thick frosting like dollops hanging off the trees. I went out this morning to take the photo in my pj's. Just slipped on my hubbies running shoes and stood there taking the pictures. Not nearly as impressive as it is for real, but still pretty!

Seems fitting that I should post a few photos of my newly bisqued, carved porcelain pots. (Seeing how they're snow white!) They survived the bisque fire and truthfully, I have no idea what to expect when I glaze them. Maybe that's when they might crack, warp, possibly disintegrate? hahahah Either way, I LOVE them and can't wait to see them finished!







Busy morning for me, more pots to decorate! Time is ticking!

A great big happy birthday to Mud Colony, which I'm told turned one year as of yesterday! More and more wonderful potters are sharing their blog posts and photos. Great stuff! Why not pop over to take a peek....here!

  1. Lovely looking snow...so glad you shared it with us down here in the south. Hope our mountains get some this year, since last year there wasn't any.

  2. If they haven't cracked yet, I doubt they will. My Frost cracks usually show up while they are drying pre-bisque, and once in a while in the bisque. I'm no expert, but I hope that is encouraging. :) They are lovely!

  5. Thank you all! You've made me feel much more hopeful about the pots Amy and Linda. Mixing that new glaze today and should have them finished very soon! Can't wait!

  6. Stunning pots!! I like the glaze colors you picked and the shape of them.

    Snow... eek.... We do tend to get at least one snow fall before winter, I am guessing I have some coming my way soon.
