studio visit

a corner of my studio in the bayview

Have I mentioned lately how much I love my new studio space? It is so wonderful to be there and the only thing that could make it more perfect would be warm running water and it be out my back door...but I am not complaining. The light alone can't be beat.

books & tools

I have been feeling a little guilty about my neglect of this blog lately though guilt really isn't the right word for it. I am just distracted by other things and I do have to confess I have been a little enamoured with this lately. It seems to be more representative of my mood. Quiet and contemplative. Never the less I do have things that I must tell you about. So scoot on up a bit closer and have a quick listen.

First of all I have been featured in yet another magazine, Mary Engelbreits Home Companion. They even printed a quote from me. Wow what a thrill to see my words in print like that! I have been very fortunate with so much press lately. It is really lovely to be noticed and I do have this satisfying feeling watching the pile of books and magazines stack up that include a bit about me and/or my work. I never in a million years dreamed such would be so.
So thank you kind press people.
I send you a million kisses! (whether or not you want them).

work in progress

Meanwhile I am busy with so many new things. I am working on developing some small vases. My mold guy, handsome Hector, is coming to visit my studio this week and hopefully he will be making some new molds for me very soon. Also I am working on some new pieces (see above photo and no they are not large phalluses...they are upside down vessels) for an upcoming show called Line & Color that I will be participating in Atlanta, Georgia hosted by MudFire in April. I also just got an invitation to participate in an NCECA exhibit hosted by Santa Fe Clay called La Mesa that features 150 place settings. I will be one of many ceramists making a table settings for this show. So much already and its only three weeks into January.
