Three days of snowy blowy blizzards left us with a gorgeous winter wonderland.  With nowhere to go, we spent some good time in the studio exploring our new stamps a little further.  I threw a number of bowls with "rolled" rims ( a new form for me). At night I would lie in bed thinking about what new glazes I want to mix up and test to go on these sweet new pieces. And although I don't quite remember them, I'm sure my dreams of late have been filled with bowls and stamps and stamps and bowls! (I'm hooked I tell ya!!). We have a couple more days of work to do to fill up the kiln for a bisque firing, and then we'll be able to glaze these babies up!
