What's going on?

Not much is going on. Just trying to stay warm. I'm really all done with this cold, gray weather. That's why I'm leaving tomorrow for a 10-day trip "home" to Uruguay. I feel better just googling the weather there... in the 80s and sunny: just what the doctor ordered!

I have been busy making lots of berry bowls and some yarn bowls, as usual. I'm also trying my hand at making essential oil diffusers. I tried 3 designs and will leave it up to the customer who asked me to make them to tell me which one works best. I really enjoy these collaborations with my customers!

I also tried my hand at making a house. Unfortunately it wasn't ready in time to enter it into the Etsy Mud Team Challenge, but I really had fun making it, although I don't know how it will look glazed. I think I'll be trying my hand at more of these in the future. BTW, voting in the challenge goes on until midnight on March 2, so go vote and get a 20% discount coupon for participating Etsy potters (including Glynt Pottery)!
The other I did was to, finally, test all my glazes against each other. I think I have 130-something test tiles. Now I have a sample of what every glaze look like underneath and on top of every other glaze. I don't know why I never did this before!
