Disaster!

One of my large rockbowl exploded during the bisquefire today! I was to fast to put it in the kiln... Should have let it dry for a couple of days more. Luckily the other pots, and the kiln seems to be okay!

Early spring!

My prunus kurilensis has spent the winter in the garage and suddenly it decided that spring is here. It started to bloom last friday so I put it out in the sun. Three days later there were beautiful cherryblossoms all over the tree! It blooms just for a short time, but it is so lovely and I like it a lot...
I think the tree itself starts to look ok, just have to build up some ramification.

Here you have some pictures.
