On the wheel again, oh it's good to be back on the wheel again....

Yesterday I put a car fan belt on the Pacifica and tightened it down.  Today I gave it a good road test to see what it had under that wheel head.  I was afraid it would take some time to produce anything worthwhile since I haven't been on the wheel since last December, but I guess it's like riding a bike.  I will trim the pieces I did during lunch, sometime tomorrow.  Wish me luck with that.

It is a little worn, but you should have seen it BEFORE I cleaned it up!

Did these three pieces as practice during my 30 minute lunch.  I will trim them up tomorrow - hopefully at lunch time.

I want to thank Charles at Hughes Pottery for the excellent mug for my desk at school, and to Zygote for the nice coaster/ teabag holder/ lid, that I use to keep the kids from dropping loose clay from their hands into my mug!  It works great for keeping my drinks cold, and the lid keeps those sodas from going flat so fast!

The color schemes are different, but who cares - as long as it works, right?

Stay tuned for more wares!
