Would you look at that! It's mid-October. And here I am running around like a squirrel gathering nuts before the snow falls! Instead of gathering nuts . . . I'm glazing and firing. Glazing and firing. Repeat. Mugs, after their 1st firing, waiting to be glazed. Glazed mugs drying. When I'm not glazing and firing,... Continue Reading →

The snow has melted. Temperatures on the rise. Dusted off my tool box. Unearthed my clay. Started some slab work. From a ball of clay to a slab of clay then onto the hump mold. Bowls made from a slab of clay air drying. Resting.

From what I can glean from mother in law's photos, Sweetie is about 12 or 13 years old. Very accustomed to living as sole house cat in charge.... Continue Reading →
After Miss Kitty passed away in October of 2020 at the young age of 20 something, I thought I was done with cats. We have had many cats through the years. Five over the past 30 years. I was done with cats and gave all of our cat things way. The cosmos laughed and laughed.... Continue Reading →
