Loquat Tree

The loquat tree or Eriobotrya japonica is flowering right now. We have two trees right next to each other. The fruits are usually ripe by early spring. Squirrels go away!

Endeavour over HP

Thank goodness, the heat wave is over!  Welcome fall!  And just washed my car - which means only one thing of course - it rained today!

Oh, we also didn't get to post this major historical moment that happened a couple of weeks ago:

Endeavour Shuttle flyby...over Highland Park!  Oh man, so so cool.

Spring Roll Friday

Cynthia was asking me the other day if I knew how to make spring rolls. I've never tried, because why make it when your filpino mom makes it so much better. Anyhow, this how-to video looks promising.

Happy weekend everyone:)

New Inventory in Etsy shop

We are making some more mini vessels today.  These vessels are one of our popular items.  

It's hard to tell what people are going to end up liking. We think one thing and then we are totally surprised by what ends up happening. We love that unpredictability.

So while were a bit slow on the blog front, we were at least busy making pots! More stuff in our Etsy Shop! Check them out here.

Favorite Bowl

I love this bowl. It's the one I look in the cabinet for when I want a bowl of cereal, oatmeal, soup, rice, fruit, ice cream. And there's nothing really special with it but just a happy accident with a couple of glazes (glossy white and Vegas red and black oxide.  And it got glazed fired twice (because I didn't like it the first time).

It's an imperfect bowl just like its owner.
