Last Years Hedge Apples

Things have been slow in the studio for me these days.  I now have two part time jobs which is great.  I can pay the rent.   One job, a challenge, is an interim contract for the City of Kettering Rosewood Art Center.  I am doing their firings, making glazes and cleaning and organizing their studios.  All this keeps me happily occupied--yet my own work in clay has slowed.

The halves

Press molds
Well I have been in the studio for a bit this week.  I am trying out last years hedge apple molds at someone's request.  She would like a ceramic hedge apple--bright chartreuse and that sounds kind of fun--so here are a couple pictures of the start.  I have pressed 8 halves.  Tomorrow I will bring them together
