Fun Picture

I was digging through old images here today and came across this little gem. The photo is of some of my brothers and sisters, and of course me. In all your days have you ever seen such peace loving bunch of kids?

From the front row: Virginia and Mike, second row: John, Art, Bob, and the back row is Kelly and me. I really dig Kelly's hair! If you wonder why I make such crazy little creatures, I think this is why. Think of the little hats on my creatures and then look at Kelly! Isn't that a kick? (I love you Kelz)

So to my barely younger sister Kelly, thanks for the inspiration.

New Web Site Layout

Today my newly redesigned website was uploaded. I had been adding to the old website for quite awhile and I felt it was getting cluttered. It's been streamlined and hopefully easier to navigate.

Most of the artwork shown on the site has already sold, which is a very good thing. The piece that accompanies this entry is a new wall hanging. I am continually creating more. In fact, I am getting ready to load a bisque kiln tomorrow. I have 5 pieces in that kiln that are going to be high fired in a wood kiln. I can wait to see the results. It's been a long time since I have participated in a salt, soda or wood firing. If you are interested in finding out about soda/wood firing please visit: Live Oak Pottery.

Delivered Work

This past weekend was a busy one. First, I celebrated my birthday on Labor Day (how appropriate, since birthdays are labor days for our moms).

Then I delivered a car load of new artwork to Florida Craftsmen Gallery. This piece is called Beach Baby. The heart on her tummy is a drawer so you can stash jewelry or other mementos inside her.

I also had an opening last Friday night at Clay Glass Metal Stone Gallery in Lake Worth, Florida. The turn out was great. I saw a lot of students from PBCC. To all who made it a successful night, thank you.

New Work: Freestanding Vixie Chix

Thought I would upload an image of my newest Vixie Chicks. They are fresh out of the kiln and are ready to be adopted. They are small, standing about only 4 inches high so they don't take up too much space. Guaranteed to make you smile. I called this picture Chorus Line. Or maybe I should have called it police line up. You can buy them at Clay Glass Metal Stone Gallery in Lake Worth, Florida and Florida Craftsmen Gallery in St. Petersburg Florida.
