Waiting to be Glazed


This is what is waiting for me this afternoon. A few more dips and I'm set to load the kiln this evening. I made a hard decision to cancel my show in Raleigh this weekend due to state of my grandmother. I couldn't focus on getting much done these last few weeks so all you great folks going to Larkspur this year. I'll miss you but will be there hopefully to regain my post next summer!
Yesterday was spent at Clayworks and today I'm catching up on my Art History folks, running kids to some well check-ups, end of the year parties and doctoring a poor cat who injured her paw. And yes...it is my cat Paws! I'm going to run back and pick her up at the cat doctor after picking up my other "kiddies".
I took my camera to class yesterday but I was so engrossed in my demo's that I only got two students at the end of class to for some photo's. Only one more class to go and then I will be saying goodbye to teaching clay for awhile along with all the fine folks I've met at Clayworks.
Here is John very proud of his Cake-plate. He's showing off the top with this great Shino combo he did.

Below is Pat Warren. She has taken several classes with me and I just love her. She's working on a chocolate pot this session which I think is pretty cool. Next week I'm going to try and make a really good effort to get more photo's of my last class.

Oh Jen! I'm so sorry to hear that you're not able to do Larkspur- I know that's your favorite show. I've been thinking about you and your family....

Hey, I was hoping to see you this weekend, I'm going to try to come out and visit Teresa for her first show there. Best wishes for your family, I've been there, not much fun is it!? I have a funny tile I made you but I keep forgetting to get it in the bisque. I had planned to bring it to Raleigh so just as well I guess. I'll mail it one of these days when I finally get it done.
