I have been working away at my pottery sheep this past week. As you can see - the flock is slowly growing. If you click on the image - it will enlarge it.
I now have 3 small sheep done - and 2 larger sheep. The larger sheep, will be available with - or without your flock name added. As you can see in the picture below, I can shear the wool on the side of the sheep - and add a name. This one is for my good friend Cate (but if you know her, don't tell her - it's a surprise).
The first 3 small sheep have now been bisque fired, and are ready to be glazed. I will have to make a trip to Waterloo, Ontario next weekend to pick up some glazes. I will probably paint them up next week, and then get everything ready for a glaze firing. This is a time consuming process, as we never fire the kiln until it is full - with the cost of energy these days - just can't afford it.
I have 2 more of the larger sheep to complete for pre-existing orders this next week. I also have 6 small sheep to complete for other local orders.
This next few weeks, I will work on making several more of the small sheep - and then I will start taking orders for specific colours. I will have to work out the details for these orders.
I may just make several sheep - and then post them and sell as is, or take specific orders, and
you have to wait while it's being completed. Many little details to work out.
Also - Nancy Krohn (Bluff Country Shetlands), has graciously offered to post a link on her page, to my sales page - thank you Nancy.
Well - I'd better get back to it.
