Saturday afternoon slip trailing and painting bowls with Elizabeth keeping me company. We cheered on @biancaandreescu_  who won the US Open! Congratulations Bianca! (And yes, I have a TV in my studio. 😉) #shethenorth #wethenorth #tennis #ohcanada #whatagame #catsofinstagram #studioassistant #porcelain #pottery#sliptrailing #painting #decorating #manitobacraft #canadianceramics #craft #bowls #nothingisordinary
A freshly thrown serving platter. I have an order for one 16” one, so threw it to 19” to compensate for shrinkage and made three to compensate for all that can go wrong.  #pottery #porcelain #wheelthrown #wip #workinprogress #atthewheel #functionalpottery #craft #craftsmanship #contemporaryceramics #manitobacraft #inthestudio #canadianceramics #madeinwinnipeg #platter #serving #simplicity #nothingisordinary

Elizabeth and Gabriel wish everyone a happy “World Cat Day”! We had a wonderful week with my cousin Sophie who was visiting from Normandy. She took this lovely shot from the outside of my glass screen door when we arrived home after a day at the beach. She also informed me today what day it is. Elizabeth and Gabriel say Merci beaucoup Tante Sophie! 😻😻 #cats #catsofinstagram #kittens #sodarncute #familyreunion #grateful #nothingisordinary
Posted @withrepost • @stonewaregallery Potters spend a lot of time looking into bowls, while throwing, decorating and using.  Here are the interiors of a pair from @valeriemetcalfepottery  #porcelain #painted #goldlustre #bowls #manitobacraft #nothingisordinary
Pattern revealed in some of the Ramen bowls. I always make extras for special orders. The customer took a little extra too.  #pottery #porcelain #ceramics #canadianceramics #craft #craftsmanship #pattern #sliptrailing #tuckersclay #manitobacraft #painting #contemporaryceramics #bowls #ramenbowls #madeinwinnipeg #nothingisordinary #wheelthrown #relieved

Some of the bowls from the previous post are a special order  in the style of some small ones I made a while ago. These are slip-trailed with #aftosablackwaxresist and then painted. Some of the parts need waxing before glazing. I hope I can remember what they are. 🤔🤷‍♀️ #bowls #porcelain #sliptrailing #handpainted #craft #craftsmanship #ramenbowls #ceramics #canadianceramics #manitobacraft #workinprogress #wip #madeinwinnipeg #instapottery #natureinspires #nothingisordinary
Summer classes at The Stoneware Studio began yesterday.  I always forget how intense this time of year gets with 10 new students in each of the 4 classes, but it’s rewarding introducing them to the joys and sorrows of ceramics.  #potteryclass #throwing #patience #teaching #busytimes #manitobacraft #stonewarestudio
Just when I have some time to try and catch up with everyone my Instagram feed is not working properly and is refusing to load about half of the images. Is this a problem everywhere? In the meantime Gabriel and I say hello from the porch. And yes those are tiny paw prints 🐾 under the windowsill from a dearly departed who ran across the freshly painted floor many years ago. 💘 #myoldhouse #summerontheporch #kittens #cats #catsofinstagram #simplepleasures #aquiettime #nothingisordinary #dearfriends
I received an order for some pieces in a glaze combination I hadn’t used in a while. It was nice to revisit it and use it in some different shapes too. So for #teapottuesday on Wednesday here is one from the series. Scroll to see the whole #teaset if you like.  #teapots #teasets #porcelain #manitobacraft #wheelthrown #functionalceramics #craft #craftsmanship #canadianceramics #handpainted #tuckersclay #instapottery #natureinspires @stonewaregallery #liddedvessel #nothingisordinary
Turquoise pitcher with saucer.  I rarely have my finished pieces at home as I fire over at our joint Gallery and Studio @stonewaregallery . I love the informality and composition of the pictures of so many potters’ works I admire that are taken in their homes. Perhaps I need to find a different approach myself?  #pottery #porcelain #pitcher #simplicity #craft #craftsmanship #ceramics #canadianceramics #manitobacraft #tuckersclay #functionalpottery #wheelthrown #insta_pottery #photography #nothingisordinary
