Great spangled fritillary and what came out of the kiln

This butterfly was in my front yard a couple of weeks ago. It's interesting to see how different the front of the wings look compared to the back.

I did a little hand building and have a few other pieces waiting to be wood-fired next month. It's been a long time since I've gotten anything finished since I'm saving up for wood-firing, so I caved in and had them fired in the electric kiln. The first pieces can be used for sushi or soap, but I don't eat sushi or use much bar soap so probably won't be keeping these.

Off to watch the Tour de France, the one sport that I enjoy watching. See ya!
