busy with Pottery
Been so busy this week!
My supply of round vases finally run out, and though I'm really sad that there are non left, I was really happy to do some more research \ shopping last weekend, and found some beautiful sake bottles \ vases in a cool restaurant supply shop in Bowery street. The store was so cool, I wanted to buy everything, but eventually I just got the vases.
Then a couple of days afterwards, an order came for 11 of those vases! so I did have to go again and get another one! how cool is that?! So, then I couldn't resist and I also got some sake cups and Japanese style tea cups.
But that was not the end...
Sadly, 4 of the old vases that were ordered broke in shipping, and I had to find other round vases, looking everywhere, the only place I could find something vaguely similar was IKEA. Ned and I took the bike to the new branch in Red Hook, Brooklyn.
I got 4 vases as replacement and then another 10 cups and one large vase (and a planter, but that's for the house).
Ever since, I've been trapped in the studio painting birds, insects and animals like crazy.
So - already done:
11 vases for a whole sell order
4 replacement vases for the one that got broken
1 Sake bottle and cups set with swans
4 cups \ planters \ vases with birds
I can just go on and on with painting those, it's so much fun! However, I need to get some stuff ready for Ned's mom trunk show and so, it's time for some sewing...
