  1. I'm a sad guinea today...I just found out the founder of The Art Spirit gallery, my favorite place, passed away on Dec. 31st from ALS. Guys, he was so awesome. He really liked my work & encouraged me to submit it... I'm really sad...

      The Art Spirit has BETH'S work, man. It is an iconic place, full of beauty and wonder. He will be so missed...

  2. Whewie, my paws are SOOORE today. So worth it, though; I made some adorable progress on Cap'n Cavy. His left leg is just about finished! Check out his SWEET lil' boot on my thread! Very proud. ♥

      Oh, great. You take care of those eyes, lady; they are most precious. Yeah, I'm pretty bummed out about my hands... I guess I had better stick to smaller scale pieces. 7" is too tall for Guinea's busted paws... :'(

  7. I allowed someone into my studio on Christmas day...I don't do that. But I'm thinking that its going to be OK if I 'open up' a little more. Still processing that thought.

  8. I had a relay fail after 72 firings. Sigh, I had put off getting spare parts to my next order.

      I have psoriatic arthritis and a dozen disc herniations in my spine, and well... I parted ways with me wheel. It was really depressing for me, and I grieved terribly. After pouting a bit, I got my tools 'n started handbuilding. It's sooo much kinder to my body, and lotsa fun! ♥

  11. I finished the building part of the toony-ish fox head and posted pics in my "w.i.p." thread, if you'd like a peek. ♥

  12. Getting back into pottery this coming week. I haven't touched clay in almost 2 months now.

  13. Wheek! Miss me? ♥ I got the clay bug again after months of pouting. :)

  14. Starting to get a feel for what a "rhythm" looks like in the balancing act of 'making and marketing'...'makes me appreciate much more those who do this full time in the clay world.

  16. My fella got me a rolling pin and a bag of natural sponges from the thrift store! ^_^ Gonna get on slab adventuressss... ♥

  17. It is glaze firing day...I seem to forget just how hot it can get in the kiln room when the outside/combustion air is coming in at 95F+. The pots are reducing and apparently so am I :)

  18. No one wants to buy a lottery ticket to have the privilege of cleaning out the cly trap in my studio sink...people just don't understand how much fun that is (spoken in my best Tom Sawyer voice) *snicker*

      Of course, it did! *eyeroll at power grid* We lost power for a couple hours during our heat wave about a week ago, too. Laaame...
