A day well spent

I went with a few friends to a Jen Allen workshop at Concord University in Athens, WV

The day started on the right note with a beautiful sunrise that made my heart sing.       
 The workshop was very informative and she was very pleasant and open. She answered all questions and shared her recipes and tricks of the trade.

Here are some of her pieces in progress at different stages of being slipped, carved, trimmed and handles applied.

And applying the colored engobes and accent glazes with a syringe bottle after which she will wax the decorations to keep the glaze from settling on them then dip the whole thing in her beautiful Celadons and others.

 And the finished, intricate, layered and functional product.
