(pots by Gary Rith, and laundry!)
It has been so hot and dry for over a week, I'm amazed. People in Florida, Texas, Arizona may not be surprised, but 80s in upper New York in April? For the rest of the month? Definately the hottest April on record.
It is sometimes fun, as a potter, to throw something on the wheel and also finish it that day. (here you see teapot parts and then the wild finished teapot, then some bowls, plus the laundry!) Usually you throw it today, and trim it tomorrow, but if I set the fresh items on the back deck, wash the dishes, clean the litter box, check email, voila!
The wind and sun this week has been drying tings outsde so fast I can finish them the same afternoon.
