Boxes

It is good to see Sheila throwing and altering her boxes again. It has probably been over 3 years since she made one. It was almost 3 years ago we started planning our move and packing boxes instead of her making them. To be honest it has been exhausting and getting life back into our work harder than I thought possible. If you pick something up, you have to put something down. We have picked up so many things in the past 3 years. Seeing pots from the wood kiln again has lit a bit of a fire under both of us.
The key hole is new for her boxes. People will think they are bird houses. Why not? We had a customer ask if she could cook a Cornish hen in one. Sheila has 11 green ware boxes ready for bisque and then wood fire. Please let there be a God! These are a labour of love.

I have one of Sheila's earlier boxes and I love it...to all the kiln gods..kiss them in the right places! And Tony, your job is to let me know when they are out of the kiln and ready for shipment. Bravo. Glad things are getting back to normal for the two of you. -- Mary Ann

Please let Sheila know I think her boxes are the best! She has the right combination of all things. Please post photos of them glazed. I know how much time she must have in them. They will do well in your kiln, they get TLC.
