A hand-thrown mug that I bought in Omaha is going back into active duty. I haven't used it for a while but I like drinking coffee from it. The potter's name are only initials for now as I don't remember the name. We use to visit Omaha to see their art museum every few years and which there we visited a shop that had many artists' works. I have about four pieces of this woman's pottery. I would hope that someday that maybe I could get back to a potter's wheel and make some of my own.
While photographing the mug I realized that the mug was in the hub of where it is all happening. I bought weather stripping for my door that I had squared to the door opening. The new weather stripping worked perfectly when I replace the old stuff. The mug is sitting in the framing area where I am trying to finish up this job with a shadow boxed item.
I live, learn and now hate this job but it will look good when I am done. I need to fasten the top piece with nails, sparingly, to the base to make it more secure. Then I will fill the holes with a matching filler. I will share the finished work as I get closer to the end. My substitute teaching job of ten weeks got into the wary of me working on this. I want finish it soon and get it out of the house.
I hope everyone will have a great Sunday. Thank you for checking in on my spot today.
