New Shuttles with Pic Tips

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
I am making new shuttles with pic tips for those who prefer that kind of shuttle.
These ones have impressed tatting designs too! These shuttles still have to go through two firings before they are finished. In these photos they are in what we potters call the "greenware" state. They are very fragile at this point.

I threw in a clover shuttle to get some perspective on size. The smaller the shuttle the more difficult they are for me to make. Keep in mind that the the clay shuttles will shrink even more during the firings.
I have several deadlines coming up in the tatting and potting world, and since I have been sick with flu-like symptoms I am starting to fall behind. I can feel the panic creeping up my throat.
So I best get back to work.

Ooooh, love the new ones - can't WAIT to see them finished. Here's a challenge for you - can you make an Aero lookalike!!!!

Very cool! Love seeing the "green ware". Looking forward to seeing the finished purse too. I'm even bolder than Jane, turtle beads please.

VERY COOL! Love the impressed designs. I have to agree with Jane......how about an English Aero bobbin style shuttle. THAT would be something!

Mark, aka Tatman (not ducking under his keyboard in the case shuttles might fly by and I can catch one LOL!)
