Last summer, before my sabbatical began, I built some pieces that never got finished. I built several pea pod forms at the Mini Maker Faire in Tieton. I did the pieces as a demonstration during the event, but never finished them because I got busy with my sabbatical work. They had one layer of underglazes applied when they were still wet. I finished applying the second and third coats this summer.
Most of the work done during my sabbatical incorporated bike parts or was designed as part of a wall installation. I only had a couple pieces that neither attached to the wall nor used actual bike parts. These pieces were not a priority for firing and finishing in the fall as the working deadline and my "Biomorph" show approached.
