I pulled these out of the kiln this morning, anxious about how they'd look. I am so, so pleased with them. The idea of a series of birds' egg vases has been percolating in the back of my mind for several years. I've finally come up with a glaze combination and shape that I like.

One of them is a gift for my friend Lynsey's birthday (the one in the front right). Another is already sold. I'm about to go up to the studio to throw- you can bet I'll be making more of these.

This morning I woke up early and went on a quick run despite the cold. April has fled the mid-south and been replaced by a few days from February. It always amazes me how much more productive I am when I run in the morning. So far I've unloaded the kiln and photographed a bunch of things, made hummus, loaded the dishwasher, sold some pottery, and started a pot of spicy lemon-ginger-carrot lentil soup. All by 10 am. I hope my morning in the studio is as productive.

Have a good week, everyone!

****ETA- I've just listed these as a custom order in my Etsy shop. If you're local, contact me and I'll take care of you. Please note that this is ONLY because I have to charge TN sales tax, and Etsy will charge you shipping. We don't need to ship locally, right?******
