I have had the good intentions to post this weeks guest blogger (she has done her part...sorry Laura, I promise I will get to it) but I have been so darned busy getting things finished for the upcoming ACGA show that by the time I get home I am so tired I can barely see straight. I have not had a day off in a week and a half and the days have been very long... a twelve hour day yesterday and ohhhh, a short day today, only ten hours. Being an independent artist means I get to celebrate independence day by eating my lunch by the glowing kiln instead of by a glowing barbecue. It's okay, I am almost there (I whisper this to myself many times through out the day) and just look at the cacophony of color! Just to toot my own horn a little, this is about half of what will have for the sale. The vases go in the kiln tomorrow and some bigger "show" pieces also get fired tomorrow. My back aches and my shoes are covered with glaze, I am tired but feeling very satisfied.
