Here's the fruit of the kiln from Monday's bisque firing. I used underglazes on some of the pieces. I've got a lot of glazing to do.
I cut some lilacs from a tree out front of Chris and Sara's new apartment. I'd been jonesing for some lilacs and the minute I saw their tree, knew I'd found a way to satisfy my craving. I love lilacs! We planted a couple of bushes last summer but only one flowered and I wasn't sure if I should cut the flowers yet as the bushes are still so small. However, when I got home today I noticed one of the major branches of the bush had broken off - probably during the hail storm we'd had earlier, so I finished the break and cut the flowers and added them to my bouquet I'd gotten last night. Our lilacs are a much brighter purple than the typical lilacs. They are so beautiful and they smell so great when you walk into the house!
