Some work, finally!

Yesterday was huge for me.  Literally.  A good friend asked for a ginormous mug.  Bigger than any I'd ever done.  Now, to me, a mug is 1 1/2 to 2 lbs of clay, which is beer stein-size to me.  So here it is, with other stuff.

More like large vase size!  But I bet she'll love it!  The one on the right is a beer stein, and in the middle was my first attempt at a really big mug.  The monster on the left is 8" tall.  Oy VEY!!

I'm starting to accumulate greenware, hoping to fire soon.  
Here's a couple more pics of stuff waiting to get fired.  

Probably by the end of the week I'll have enough for a full load, or even early next week...depending on how the weather holds.  We've had really nice weather lately, it's a pain when the rain or wind (or both) start up.  Ick, ick, ick!

I have made the big buckets of coffee too, and wonder what the person is like after all that caffeine :)
