More summery-ness

Betsy's bed is just too tempting in full sun in the early afternoon. Just look at the color of that sky!

I'm rather smitten with this new bronzey glaze; it's just plain manganese at cone 6.
It's no good for functional ware, but so pretty with textures and how it catches the light..
I made a bunch of these little hand-built planters.
 I haven't made flowerpots in years and years.
I planted slips from my succulent collection in a few of them.
I'm experimenting with pastel colors a bit too.
 Could a penchant for pattern be hereditary?
Yup, I think so.
