Spring Training!

It's that time of year where I reclaim the earth one bucket at a time! I wedged 20.5 pounds of clay yesterday.  The balls of clay (see photo above) are ready to be thrown onto the wheel and molded into something spectacular! Sadly, though, I'm not in tip-top shape.

A Monday Morning Surprise

I woke up to a nice surprise this morning unlike other mornings that require removing an odd assortment carcasses and entrails from the house or back porch. Eeew!
