Little challenges are fun. And sometimes the challenges I work on in my studio are really, really little. This fresh round of Mini Pots was unloaded from the kiln this weekend and are headed to their (temporary) home at The Beehive this week. If you live in or near Atlanta, Georgia visit The Beehive to adopt your own little Mini!
Each teensy Mini Pot weighs just a few ounces and is thrown on the wheel from a ball of clay smaller than a ping pong ball. I love making these little guys! Working this small on the wheel is always a challenge for me. My fingers which normally feel pretty tiny when I am working on large bowls and platters, suddenly feel like big ol' sausages when I am trying to throw a thin, delicate little Mini Pot.
I listed several of these miniatures a few months back, and they were quite popular in My Etsy Shop I then got busy (obsessed) with lots and lots of bowls and all but forgot about these sweet little things! But, now they are back on my production list. You can expect to be seeing lots more of these adorable little vases very soon!
