Spot the Iguana

The school year has begun and it's Friday, a day off so I did my favorite thing. Got up out of bed, straight into the studio, a cup of coffee and out my window I see this lime green shape move through the areca palms. We have an iguana visitor in my yard. Can you spot him? About 1 foot long he's only in the top 2 photos near the orange berries.

Freestanding sculptures fresh out of the kiln

Unloaded a kiln today and here are the fruits of my labor. These little guys have packs on their backs and their little love arrows at the ready. They're free-standing and about 16 inches high. These might be on their way to a gallery in California.

New Salt and Peps on their way to Florida Craftsmen Gallery

I finally got off my lazy butt and photographed some of the new salt and peppers that have been laying in boxes in my hallway since unloading the kiln 2 weeks ago.  Shame shame... These kids will be on their way to Florida Craftsmen Gallery in St. Petersburg, Florida. Having fun with native motifs of course wings and dots too.

500 Figures in Clay: Volume 2

Good news, I received word today that my piece JJ is going to be appearing in 500 Figures in Clay: Volume 2. The word is it will be in bookstores in February 2014. I just sent a message to Jill (the lady who bought the figure appearing in the book - she's one of the J's in the title JJ) to give her the good news. Thank you Lark Publishers.

Working in the studio on Salt and Peppers

My inventory of salt and pepper shakers was nearly depleted. And now you know how I spent my weekend. I've got smaller and larger sets. I think 9 sets in total on my work table. Several of these will be winging their way to Florida Craftsmen Gallery as soon as they're fired.
