I really like the deep red color of this clay - it's called Navajo Wheel, a cone 6 clay from IMCO.
Weigh the clay - I didn't use to do this, but it makes getting similar sizes so much easier.
A future wine bottle coaster...
This is going to be a lotus bowl once I carve it.
Letting them dry to leather-hard.
And now for a break in the shade!

First Saturday Open Studio today, 10-4 pm, 225 Foresthill Avenue, Auburn - fun to finally work with the doors open!
Summer is here, our strawberry guava is blooming! I've never had one, hope they are yummy.
That's our upper vegetable/berry/flower garden; growing because it's warm!
Bush beans, Zephyr straight-neck squash, and Gold Rush summer squash - and a huge volunteer sunflower.
I like the sunflower peeking through the clematis arch - the lonely guardian of the berry patch.
Maybe we'll get some blueberries this year in the blue pot.
Ready for the next weeding expedition, this is a great tool! We can pretty easily uproot the occasional Bermuda grass with it.
That mammoth sunflower is vying for the highest spot in the garden!
Love the lush wild look in the back.
This pretty metal fish from Argentina swims across our patio wall.
