casseroles and grant applications

Here are the casseroles that I threw the other day. I like the chunky handles, it suits the heavily grogged and speckled clay.

This is the fabulous book that I am reading. It is so fabulous that I brought it with me into the studio today. I am reading it while I am waiting for the clay to dry out enough to make handles for lids.

Here are the lids with their chunky handles. Some of them seem to be too small for the bottoms which is weird because I used my beautiful calipers to ensure a good fit. I am hoping that this is just because they are drying at different rates and that they will be a perfect fit when they are completely dry.

This is what I am going to be spending the rest of the afternoon doing. The CKCA grant applications are out and I have an idea. The application process is good for me as I have to really focus my thoughts and intentions and explain what I am planning to do. This provides me with a lot of clarity and although my ideas seem to change slightly during the creation process, I usually stay quite true to the initial concept. Wish me luck.

Good luck! Can't wait to hear what your idea is...

By the way, did I tell you that Camilla Gibb came to one of my book club meetings? I fell in love with her.
