Five on Friday- My Week

It’s been a busy week, I don’t know where the time goes but I don’t seem to have finished anything.

I’ve washed my brushes out ready to start painting a tile mural commission. Porcelain artists take a lot of care with their brushes as any dust in them can leave marks in a painting when it’s fired. I keep my brushes covered with a shower cap when not in use, or “Bonnet de douche”, as Del Boy would say!

I’ve bought a spiralizer; I did some potatoes to make waffles, then I remembered I got rid of the sandwich maker which had the waffle plates, so we had curly fries and poached eggs instead. Healthier egg and chips, with brown sauce, of course!

Are you a brown, or red sauce person?
I made some ceramic beads this week, they are in the kiln now and will be glaze fired next week, hopefully.

While I was working my garden visitors were keeping an eye on me.P1290118

The bird feeder is just outside the studio window so I will be watching and counting my visitors at the weekend and taking part in the RSPB Big Garden Bird Watch. Is anyone else joining in?P1290119If you would like to read some Five on Friday posts from other bloggers then head over to Love Made my Home , and join the fun.

    I love your beads. They will look gorgeous once they have been glazed. I like the sound of a spiralizer! Great bird pictures. I will have to get counting once I’m home. Have a good weekend. Barbara

    I would love to join the garden bird watch but Felix the next neighbours cat frightens all the birds away! I have been thinking of getting a spiralizer but I’m worried in case it will end up in the cupboard along with all my other gadgets. Your beads are lovely! oh and I’m a brown sauce girl myself. Have a great weekend. 🙂

  4. Oh my, I so need to investigate the rest of your blog, I love ceramics and all things pottery based. The beads look fabulous. The curly chips seem like a real hoot and so crispy tasty, my lot would love them x

    We bought a spiraliser just before Christmas and have used it a couple of times. We find it leaves quite a lot of bits left over but then we make soup with those. I will be doing the bird watch, we have done it for quite a few years now and I always enjoy it:)

  6. The beads look very interesting, I will enjoy seeing more of them! I can understand you keeping your brushes safely, tools of the trade are very important aren’t they. Thank you for joining Five On Friday, happy weekend! xx

    Love your bird photos. But I am so jealous of your kiln! I tried to launch a tile and other ceramic business at one point, but my biggest problem was the lack of a kiln, and I had to pay to have everything fired. It became too expensive to continue. If you’d like to see some of my work from “back then” check out the blog on my list called Blue Lotus Tile. I don’t contribute to it anymore, but keep it there as a testament to that side of my creativity. I’d love to see some of your work, so I will check out other posts.

    Interesting post, didn’t know that about your paint brushes, I fear we’re rather casual about ours.

    Love the sweet birds! Those curly fries look delicious! I’m not sure if I’m a red or brown sauce person…

    I must have a look at your older posts to see what you’ve made already. So exciting waiting to see how things are after firing! Beautiful bird photos .:-)

  11. Curly chips sound fab! And bonnet de douche Rodney, bonnet de douche! 🙂

    You have some interesting beads there. I love the photo’s of the birds, so attractive. And to answer your question, i don’t often have sauce at all but if i must it is usually red (tomato).
