Somebody wants the little one to come out and play!

UPDATE: the little one is growing fast, starting to see the fluffy feet now. Despite the “help” from Baxter though i probably shouldn’t have started the game “help me feed the chook chooks baby” 😉

Chook family?

With any luck there will be a little one running around soon. Chook is trying once again to be a surrogate mum, a couple of hours ago the clucky one got off the nest for dinner (thats her in the background) i could hear clicking and just a small crack in the shell? so maybe?!

She did it! I woke up to this little one this morning 🙂

Too much for me and the chooks

Thankfully it is not cold but it is raining, good for the seedlings but not the greatest for me and the chooks!

The poor things have decided to gaurd the nest they made under the rose bush again, rain or not. I also gave away the rooster so the eggs won’t even be fertile, the silly chooks.

I had planned on today being “moving day” for them as i only have the gate left to put on their new home and run, i just didn’t want to get drenched myself. “One more night to go chooks”

And for me the muggy rain means a lot of moisture is still in the air, so the clay projects from the class are very slow at drying.  The water can’t evaporate into wet air, mid summer is another story with trying to slow it down.

Glazing Fun

Checking the glaze thickness before I start out.

 

Here is one of the large chooks going through its transformation.

Glazing the wheel thrown bowls, pierced pedestal bowl and hand formed plates.

Watermarks? What do you think?

Why, you may be wondering?

I stumbled across a website the other day that was selling my pottery blog photos as posters OMG, needless to say it freaked me out so I put a copyright banner on the side and playing around with some new ideas.

The chook was a DIY one that looks a bit naff so maybe the second one. What do you think about them? Do they help? What do you do?

A little bit done on the nesting box and top storey, while they played.

Update: Trying to pick myself up and re-focus and what do I see? A little bit of a chook comb poking into the right hand side of the picture above…the chook was checking up on my progress 🙂
