Goodbye muddy clothes... :-/

hand painted and glazed coasters

September has given way to October...
Summer has bid an official goodbye and Autumn is slowly dripping its rust, gold and red leaves all around us...
The air is a bit chilly now, and we are getting ready to snuggle under covers and have hot chocolate and warm soup...
I absolutely love this weather!
This is the time when you are not completely overwhelmed with woollens or sweltering in the summer heat!
Its nice and cool enough for you to get your stylish boots and coats out and feel like a million bucks!
Unfortunately I am feeling a bit low...
Because my love affair with pottery is over and done with...
My family is leaving in a few days and being alone with two kids- pottery is not something I can manage on my own with my kids' hectic schedule... (school, playschool, afterschool, karate etc)
And in India I dont know how it will be practically possible with my nomadic Army lifestyle!!
so as I bid adieu to my new love...
here is a look at all the things that I have been busy with in these last couple of months!

the poppy plate that I had shown in my earlier posts

two matching trinket/snack bowls

the rooster spoon rest

this is a frog mug that I have made for my elder son

absolutely love the shape and colors of this bowl!

A few of them are going to be put up for sale on my Etsy shop, so you can drop in and see them when you get  the time....
It is another matter if they are going to sell or not!  :-)
I do have a few more things that I have left unfinished at my pottery studio, (Brickhouse Ceramics) so I will be going there on and off to get them all finished and glazed... 
Maybe in a few days I will have some more new things to show you    :-)
but my heartfelt thanx to my fabulous instructor Doug (whose work and site you can see here)
he is an extremely patient instructor esp. for newcomers like us!
And Brickhouse Ceramics is by far the BEST studio in terms of thier rates and facilities and shelf space to store things(believe me, shelf space IS important)
its nice and airy and roomy so that you dont feel all hemmed in and the people there are fantastic and so darn talented that its an inspiration to work alongside of them!!
I have made so many new and adorable and helpful friends there in my two months that my one and a half years of loneliness in the U.S. has been forgotten!   :-)
So cheers to my new friends and my new found passion and my undying hope to carry on all that I have learnt here to greater heights when I go back home to India!
