Watch the Sidebar !!!

Think i've got it this time.
Took me all day to accomplish.

Darn if i couldn't have thrown several dozen pots in the amount of time it took me to set up this secondary display site.
It's all said
And done
And we can get on with more important stuff
Right ????
Darn right !!!

Clicking on the image in the sidebar ( Mediterranean Sundance) will bring you to another page which includes a description of sorts, a blurb or two, and more photos.
Footnote:  Additions will be added to the sidebar as they become available.  Please check back often as new items will be posted regularly.

Check it out and let me know what you think !

Proceeding Slowly

This has been a confusing morning and i'm just not sure of the next step. Can't believe that i've forgotten all my javascript and html yet when i considered writing a widget for the sidebar, found the procedure daunting.

What i would like to do is: xx develop separate blog pages to post pictures and descriptions of pieces as they are ready for sale.
As of this moment, with my head trying to work thru a flu fog, that hasn't happened.

What i think i'll do is create another blogger related blog used solely to highlight new available pieces and put the picture-link in the sidebar.

Earlier today, thought i had a solution similar to this worked out on Flickr only to discover that flickr prohibits anything related to sales on their site . . . . So it's back to the drawing board.

Trouble is: i can't think of a good name for another blogspot !!!

With any luck a'tall, there will be new developments by tomorrow . . . .

Catching Up

First things first: Happy Valentine's Day everyone !
Beautiful day here. Clear. Sunny. Pristine snow on the mountain tops. Lacy, iced tree branches glitter with prismatic colors as the sunshine adds radiance to their dazzling, sparkling surfaces.

Next item to address: Have approx. one more week of firing. Will then be caught up with the backlog of bisqued pots awaiting glaze and their journey thru the crucible to make their entry into the world as -- finished pots.

Routine here for the last several months has been: rise and shine, run out to the garage and offload the previous day's fired pieces, reload the kiln and torch the burners, feed the little Yorkie her breakfast, glaze pots for the next day's firing !

All that will change presently and we'll focus on photographing this body of work. (Pictures posted soon !!!)
Then, of course, we'll focus on marketing . . . .

In the meantime: Happy Valentine's Day

Some Results

Trust me ! It's been an uphill struggle, but i think we're close to the top !!!
Scuze my long abscence please.
My computer's been acting up . . . .
Have been firing every day . . . .
Glazing every day . . . .
Trying out new color combos . . . .
Here are some pretty poor photos and a really beautiful pot . . . .
( Should redo the photos but need to run check on the kiln, so here they are with all their warts.) Sides that - it's a bit challenging to photograph mostly black pots !
Have a greatest day
