Last Minute Throwing

As I prepare for the Yuletide Craft Fair next Saturday, I am working on some last-minute preparations.  I am continually firing the kiln, but have also done some throwing!  It sounds crazy to still be throwing for the fair and it feels even crazier to be doing it!  I am not throwing a ton, just a few items:  bowls, nativity candle pots, cream and sugar sets, collecting dishes and pedestals.  Most of everything is drying out right now to be bisque fired and then glazed.  I just need to keep plugging away so I will be ready for the big day.

These nativity candle pots are quite a bit larger than the candle pots I have done in the past so that the nativity scene could wrap around the pot.  This idea actually came from a custom order.  Someone wanted one of these made and I couldn’t believe I hadn’t thought of that idea yet.  So, I made hers and then made a few extras!

I am excited for these bowls.  Large open bowls show crystals so well.  I like to flip them upside down so that the bottoms of the bowls can dry out evenly.  Today I am trimming the cream and sugars, adding handles to them, throwing pedestals and collecting dishes.  Almost there.
