Prayers & 3 kilns running …

And while I continue to take moments throughout the day to offer up prayers to the families and community in Connecticut, I go on about my business.  Did I give my kids extra hugs?  You bet!  We had our family time at the dinner table over home cooked Shrimp Alfredo and finished with our nightly …

12-12-12 …

Pretty cool! And – I’m in my studio, with my insomnia being soothed by the rhythmic sound of snoring studio-pooches (Maggie and Kat) while the kilns click in the background.  Doesn’t get much better … Spent some time with the plotter tonight … working through some additional ideas for recycled wine/liquor bottles (more to come, but – …

We interrupt this program …

For a few different reasons:  1) To wish my babies (the twins) a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!  15 years old today … Wow – time flies.  To celebrate, we’ll hit our favorite family restaurant tonight, and I will quietly endure their teenage pool party later this week … Love you guys!!!

But Maaa – I don’t wanna ….

I’m on such a productive roll in the studio – I don’t wanna go back to work, darn it! [Arms crossed with pouty face!] I have pictures:  Finally got some badge reel photos taking in prep for listing in the shops:     I have the coffin loaded (and RUNNING!) for new bowls (slumping): I …

Arrrrgh … Houston!

We have (another) problem … While grinding away at my ornament pieces – my grinder died.  Well – not died, exactly – but it’s terminally ill.  Work slowed way down in the studio after that … So, I did some painting.  Had an experiment flop.  Played with photo manipulation.  Loaded the production kiln with the …

Studio News …

I’ve gotten a few pendants and badge reels pulled together … just quick projects.  And I continue to re-photo some ‘older’ pieces – as I realize now just how horrible the lighting was in some of my initial listings …        It keeps me busy and close to Olivia – who is going …
