All Fired Up

Today’s the day …

Broke down and cleared the Christmas clutter today.  Usually I get right to it on New Year's Day but for some reason I couldn't make myself do it.   I went crazy this year and actually put up 4 (yes, really, 4) trees of various sizes around the...

The newbies are stepping up!

What a week!  It's the second week of my six week class ... and these newbies have been prolific!  You should see the work I have on the shelves -- just waiting to dry out and get into the kiln.  We've been working on bowls -- first pinch pots and then...

It begins today!

Boy, that didn't take long!  The first class starts today ... have some things to clear away in the studio before they get here (have some big bowls to do, finishing up a block of a new colored clay!), have to find some good music for everyone to work to, and...

Here we are!

Yes, we made it.  Still haven't found some of the things that were packed ... but we are here.  Wondered for a while whether we'd make it, but thank God for good movers, fast friends and my relations!  It took all of that to get us here ...   ...

It’s here already!

I know, who would believe it?  The Studio Moving Sale is on tomorrow (Saturday, May 19th, noon - 4:00 pm) ... what a rush it has been to get everything ready!  We're down to the wire here.  The move is in 2 and a half weeks.  We are up to our asses...
