summer daze


I think I can stand upright again. My legs ached for a couple of days after the sale from standing in one spot for two days. Sales are great but as many of you know they are exhausting on many levels. The show however was a great success and I couldn't be happier. I had exciting flurries of customers and visitors at my table throughout the weekend and many of my pieces walked away in other people's hands and off to their new homes. Most exciting was selling this piece, the largest item I have ever made. It is going to live in a beautiful home in Napa Valley.


The Association of Clay Glass Artists sales are always a joy to do. The customers are knowledgeable and very interested in ceramics and glass so it a pleasure to talk to people about my work (and be a clay geek) and feel understood.

This weekend I teach my workshop, Printmakers Clay Tiles, at Heath Ceramics . It looks like the class is full but if you are a last minute kind of person I think they may let a few extra folks in so don't be shy about trying to get in if you are interested in taking it. I am looking very forward to the workshop and can't wait to meet some of you readers who I know are taking the class. I have a couple of guest blogs lined up and will get back into the swing of posting them after this weekend. I also have a very special house guest (my sweetie) at the moment so I may be a little distracted for the next couple of weeks. Thank you all for your well wishes for a great sale. They all worked and boy was it nice to come home and read them at the end of my long days at the studio. Thank you, Thank you!!

Congratulations on the sale - it sounds like all your hard work paid off. If I didn't live in the other side of the world I'd have been there, and ditto for your workshop, too! Cheers, lottie

Wonderful! Your huge "Three swallows and a rose" is just too beautiful for words. I'm so glad all the hard work and aching back has paid off.
