A surprise with my soap!

Well, the Green Swamp road is down to one lane at the bottom of the hill with the water creeping over the sides. I have seen so many birds this week, robins, Sandhill cranes, swans,Canadian geese, it seems to have happened all at once! Soon I will be spending my days outside in the garden along with my studio work!

I got the nicest surprise in my most recent order from Britewerkz  

I am addicted to handmade soaps, and Brite makes the mildest soaps with the most wonderful scents. I was thrilled when my order arrived packed in these cool round sponges.  I have been having fun altering these sponges for use in my glaze and underglaze applications.   I used scissors and an exacto knife to cut the shapes.  They work great left whole as just sponges too.  I can't wait to try these in the studio tomorrow!


  1. I love what you did with the sponges. What is it about potter's that we can always find clay uses for most anything. I agree about being out in the garden, too!

  2. Julie, I don't know why but I do find clay uses for just about everything. Paul likes the sponges that come in the orton cone boxes for clean up jobs!
