before and after





Glaze firing makes a difference.

I was awarded again! the You make my day award, by Rebecca, This chicken. Thank you so much! I will link to five blogs for different reasons:

Per Agélii really makes my everyday, being such a fun and helpful neighbor at Konstepidemin. He is slowly creating a football team of granite sculptures (with the symbolic qualities of different positions) and post them at Lagbygge. Now there are four.

Elsa Agelii (yes, they are related), textile artist who blogged from her embroidery project outside Jaisalmer, India, is back with a blog in English this time. That made my day.
Water in desert. Go welcome her!

Lylou made my day when she kindly mentioned me in an interview. Happy handbagging! as Lylou would say, shop here.

Blogs I've recently found, a celebration of all that can be found out there:
Wrong distance
Nature Morph
Asphalt and air

That's actually six. Now I'll go tell them they are awarded. And in my opinion, so are you!

hello!
I find it so fascinating how odd the blogs are--one of your links has a post and link to a blog I posted my very first comment on. I remembered it today, being almost scared and feeling stupid to type on a stranger's blog... that was about 5 months ago. There it was, all linked back towards me. loops of looping loops.

is this a labrynth?

Good morning all lovely bloggers, I'm glad awards are accepted, feels good to know you share so much inspiration !
Mansuetude, I remember the feeling. Amazing how it changed after some time :)

bibbi and mansuetude: I remeber that feeling too :-) very well! Like visiting somebody who didn´t invite me. I thought that all the people, who are leaving comments are close friends of the blog owner.

Thank you J, I was quite content opening the kiln :)

j's right... the colors textures and shapes are so alive! fruitful. I meant to ask you this--remember the stories shared about fire on my blog? Camilla asked if i feared fire, and its the opposite--i love it. I wondered about you, who works with fire, uses fire to do that magical act a kiln does to the chemical dusts of the glazes. Do you think you had any attraction to "fire" or kiln "firings" because of any of your "fire" experiences? Or is it just not connected.

I did two summers in a pottery studio and the kiln openings (and firings) were like large Christmas parties.
