I couldn’t resist trying to capture the ‘green-ness’ out at the studio. This is remarkable in August. In spite of some crazy heat and humidity, we have had sufficient rain to keep the grass from turning brown. It makes it a tiny bit more bearable to be spending the summer here.
|from my notebook of ‘lists, etc.’|
I carved some new stamps, small ones for small pots. I am always mystified that so many potters mark their work in ways that are difficult to read…or impossible to read…or they use some random symbol…or an illegible signature. I have used a tiny sprig for my own stamp for a long time, but I have changed it over the years and I’ve tried to keep track of those changes and when they changed. I made a special stamp for the year 2000 and since then I have returned to lower case letters…I carved djf into the very first pot that I made. I was reading e.e. cummings back in those days! I have different sizes to go with the scale of the pots.
I have this tiny side yard and for reasons unknown, corn sprouted in the midst of grass, heat pumps and lumber. I think that I remember my friend growing corn here more than a dozen years ago…could it be self sowing after all these years?!
