Done

Even with a short power outage just when I was ready to start a bisque firing, I managed to get a couple rhubarb leaf platters complete for the upcoming Rhubarb Festival in Lanesboro Minnesota.  

Normally, it takes me several weeks to see the end results of projects I’ve started, but this time it worked out really well that I had nearly a kiln load of stuff already complete and could just sneak these platters into that load and get them done in just one week.  

The festival is tomorrow and hopefully, these platters will find new homes then.  But I’ll definitely be making more.  In addition to the green they are glazed in, I painted a stripe of raspberry glaze into the vein indentations to give them a little different color.  Was hoping for a little of the red color to show, but it’s more a darker blue/green.  Still worked out nicely.

Have a great weekend all.

Under Pressure

Next week, I’m participating in Rhubarb Festival in Lanesboro Minnesota mostly to promote the upcoming Lanesboro Area Art Trail.  One of the requriements of being a vendor at Rhubarb Festival is that your product be in some way related to rhubarb.  Hmmm… 

I have a green glaze that is similar in color to rhubarb, my bowls work excellent to hold cut up rhubarb and my tall vases work great as a display for rhubarb stems & leaves.  But that didn’t seem like enough of a tie to rhubarb to me, so today I’m working on some serving plates that are definitely rhubarb themed.  

Now to get them made, dried, fired and glazed by next weekend.  It’s definitely possible.     

Have a great weekend all.
