Little Acorns

Where did the week go? I know part of mine went to making a few tiny little acorn beads and what seems like hundreds of other pieces over the past couple of days. Sometimes the work just flows that way and it feels good to just go with it. These little guys are getting glazed tomorrow and popped in the kiln over night. I've got a bazillion glaze samples going in there too. I love seeing new glazes. A whole world of potential gets opened up.

This is the moon last night as it peeked through the clouds and the branches of the pecan tree. I just happened to catch it as I went out to load the bisque kiln. Any sooner or later and I would have missed it. It surprised  me with it's bright intensity and made me smile.

I'm off to finish up todays work and fire a few more pieces for tomorrow's glaze kiln. Happy weekend everyone!
