crazy loco....

wow--I don't know what has gotten into me--I've done one batch of regular production, and now I'm getting all inspired and feeling very creative. I haven't made a doumbek drum in two years!

Of course I had to go make the mother of all drums! This baby is over 18 inches tall! I envision her (definitely a 'she') with a some beads on the leather strap, and a henna mandala on the head. (Glazing will present it's own dilemma, but I'm thinking something neutral...)
And nor have I made a lotus bowl in many, many months....

I was getting discouraged with both endeavors in the past and my time was consumed with orders...but somehow made room for some inspiration to peek thru after the mayhem of moving.

Feels good.

It's your new space. It must be filled with inspiration.

I love the doumbek drum! Wow, I don't think I have ever seen one thrown before. How was your move?

Both are beautiful. I've never even heard of a doumbek drum but I like it!

So lovely - the pieces, and that you've been feeling inspired to create them! A new space... literally and figuratively, how exciting :)

These are absolutely gorgeous! Oh, how I miss the feel of wet clay on my hands... ::swoon::
