Yesterday was another Raku day and was it hot! And I mean the weather as well as the kiln!
Summer and her friend Leanne came over for a couple of days of art. On Sunday evening they got themselves outfitted from my drawer of second hand clothes and went potting in the studio. On Monday morning they had to decide whether to sew or pot first. They opted for sewing and all went well until Leanne cut her finger with the rotary cutter. Three hours and three stitches later they were back at sewing (I handled the rotary cutter for Leanne this time).
Here is Leanne with her bag and Summer in the background trying to finish the cushion for her mother's birthday. She did get it finished before she had to leave but I forgot to take a photo. It was white and burgundy nine patches with burgundy sashing.
It turns out that you can still do pottery with stitches if you wait one day and then wear a rubber glove.
