pumpkin clay

Around this time of year, I start to think very pumpkin.

A favorite fall activity for me is to beg and borrow some red clay off of a studio mate and make a batch of them. I leave the clay unglazed for the pumpkin part, and add a bit of green for stems, glazing the interior of the containers to be better suited for candy corns.

Pictured is part of the 2005 batch (fall of 2006 fell during a pottery hiatus).

This year, I bought my own, and invited a batch of my favorite kiddos to play clay, then forgot to take their picture...but here are a few kid-free illustrations. Plus a few more pumpkins I've been working on.

Oh, cuteness! I really love pumpkins, don't you? They're so Fall-y. And I love fall and Halloween, so there you go. You do a great job.
