Altadenahiker's ceramic stylings


Did she carve it with her hiking boots you ask? I know it's awful! I know it looks like something the dog stepped in. But you should have seen the one I destroyed. That one was supposed to be two peacocks against fountain grass, but it looked like two ferrets copulating. With marital aids. Oh I don't know, maybe I should put the garret and beret up for sale Craig's List. LOOCEEE!

  1. Do you still have your x rated tile? When it comes to ceramics, I hold my breath at each step. Will it bisque fire without cracking, will it come through the final firing without cracking and the glazes! If you should have questions my blog has an e-mail link up.

    For now, I've got some more ceramic work on this page (shoes and rabbit)

  2. kb, you must be an artist of sum kind. Nice work.

    But, between you with de "copulating & marital aids", and PA with the "X-rated title"...well, I'd better be careful to protect my innocence. But it's ok as long as Ms Havisham's strict & proper tea party doesn't find out bout this!

  3. Oh, Palm Axis, you're pom wonderful. And I will take all your advice and continue to plug away. But what made me laugh was that, after last week, I actually told a friend I was planning a series of landscape tiles for my fireplace. I should have said I was planning a series of tiles that looked like the dog's dinner, that would crack when fired, and I'd superglue the pieces on brick. LO, offending tile has been destroyed so you young 'uns are safe.

  4. Karin, you are funny. I would never even attempt something like this and I think your tile is lovely.

    Oh yes, Palm. Love those shoes.

  5. I've been studying all your blogs for the past week trying to figure out how you do what you do. Is there something I should read that would clue me in? I've even enlisted one of the IT gurus who also left The Times recently. I gave him links to your sites, plus the Miss H one. Impressive.

  6. I just use the Blogger software. Nothing fancy. Palm and L.O. are fancy. And I have no idea how Miss Havisham does what she does, I think it's the tea she drinks.

  7. Remind me next time we have tea, and I hope it is soon, to chase Petrea all over the hilly hilly hillsides and down the swilly swirly paths.

  8. Miss Havisham, I'm following you around Altadenahiker's blog tonight. Let's all have tea at the Rose Tree Tea Cottage before it moves. You can chase me over the hilly hilly hillsides and down the swilly swirly paths of California Blvd.

    I'll send an email. (One of my famous attempts, let this one not fail.)

  10. If you were shoed off, it might be because you came up un-announced. If I just showed up at your front door you might shoe me off as well because you are in the middle of a lot of things and when someone just shows up it kind of makes it difficult to complete the tasks you laid out for your self that day.

    Perhaps, if enough of ya'll get together and let me know well in advance we can have a visitor's day or something. That way we can dispell all this cult stuff.

  11. Alan:

    I apologize for any offence. Really. I was writing impressions only.

    I would truly like to tell the actual story and from your viewpoint and memories -- would glady devote a post to that if it would be of interest to you. I know someone else posted a comment re: early days and memories, and she remembers that time very fondly.
