october first


Yay, it's October! I love October...Actually I think a lot of people love October. The weather is usually somewhere near perfect, it is in between summer and winter, all of summer's bounty is coming forth, it is a time when I am busy with studio projects and it's the month of my birthday (hint, today). I am slowly getting back into the flow of things. I have a lot of catching up to do after being gone for the past year. Gonna get back into the studio this week. I have new molds to make. I had to leave a lot of them behind in New York because the were too darn heavy and weighted my Jetta down making it look like a low rider without being able to do the tricks low riders can do. When the car bottomed out going over a small bump I knew it wouldn't be a good idea to bring the molds with me. It is a drag to have to make them all over again but that's life. I got home safely with my car intact and that's what counts, right! Besides, it's October and all is good. OH and how could I forget, another good thing to be happy about in October; my dear, dear friend, who has inspired, encouraged and supported me for the past twenty two, count 'em, twenty two years, has just started her own web log. What does she talk about? Something near and dear to my heart, ceramics... Her own lovely and amazing work. Check it out here. Welcome Josie!

Happy Birthday! Guess what? If I had been born 36 minutes later, October 1st would be my birthday too.

Today we had eggplant parmesian and garden-fresh cabbage off of your plates.

welcome back to your home. i think. it does suck to leave things behind. i am not good at it.

i have a few glaze questions to pick your brain about (not your secrets, although i have a few ideas on how you do it.) a project i want to do and i am not sure if it is possible at all. but anyway...

and a swap, i hope!
