  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...

      So sorry to hear this...sounds like you and the artworld have lost an important light.

      You can be sad but also thankful that he is no longer trapped in his body. I have had nine relative die of ALS and we are always grateful when they have been set free.

      Denice ... nine? Ohhhh. :*( It's a prison at the end. I can't imagine. My grandmother had dementia and my mom basically lost her ten years before she died. But at least my grandma had no idea.

  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. ♥

      I know how you feel I finished glazing a seed pot today that has a butterfly design on it. I started having trouble with my eyes the other day. I am hoping that this bout of optic neuritis doesn't last long.

      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... :'(

  3. You guys are gonna freak when you see my next sculpture WIP... ;)

  4. I FINALLY uploaded the glazed and finished fox head to the gallery! :) Sorry it took so long; I habs no internets...boohoo...

  9. New cute avatar, heehee!

  10. So, my fella is awesome. He found a grippy turnstyle thingy at a thrift store and got it for me. It has little padded prongs to grip cup-like objects for decorating, so I don't have to hold it while I underglaze! ^_^

      I went to a workshop with Akira who does all his production ware in slabs. Talking about amazing work. Don't discount slabware.

      hey slab pots are great. go for it.

      BTW, I saw some real Cavy's at the zoo the other day. Thought of you

    4. Cavy Fire Studios

      Cavy Fire Studios

      Heehee! Cavies are the bestest! ^_^ As for slabs...I was thinkin' tryptich wall art. Pres gave me the idea to do wall hangings. :) Now, to figure out a backing for hanging...hmm. ♥

  12. So, guess who literally found almost $100.00 worth of underglaze at a thrift store in a bag marked $5.00? And then won a $1.00 discount off of it? YEP; THIS guinea pig!! ^_^

      Dayum girl! Which thrift shop was this? I'd love to make a find like that!!! <3 Nice score!

      It was way up in Newport. :) David and I were in the mood to travel, so we went up north through Newport, then Sandpoint, then to CDA, then home. :) We found such treasures!!

  13. Thinking about starting private lessons from inside my home. My health is crashing fast, and pottery is getting harder every day, but I have a lot of knowledge to share. :) I think I could take a couple students under my wing.

      do you get periods of remission?

    3. AndreaB

      AndreaB

      I'm so sorry to hear about your health. It's hard to cope with a body that's not up to the strain but a mind that wants to push you to do more than you are up to.

    4. Cavy Fire Studios

      Cavy Fire Studios

      I wish I'd go into remission! :'( That would be a godsend! Stupid immune system, anyway... *grumble grumble*

  14. It's 1:00am, and I just finished glazing. Time for this tired creaky rodent to paaaass out!!

      I don't think my clock has a '1am' :)

      I literally passed out with the phone still in my paw. Soooo sore today, haha... gotta babysit Fred now. :)

  15. A couple of yahoos were racing on the highway at 2:30am, crashed, and knocked out the power in three small towns. My Fred was firing when the power was cut, hnnngh... He got back online, though. :)

      Bummer. That happens often in our little backwater county. Our infrastructure is so mickeymouse.

      My 7k generator natural gas keeps me working thru outages -that said its not enough to fire an electric kiln with my other loads

  16. I'm one tired guinea pig. Made seven yarn bowls and two medium-large food bowls, trimmed and pencil sketched. Gonna be kyoot! WIP pics to come. :) I sure miss my 30-piece a sitting days, though...

      Whooo! :) Good for you! I made three vases yesterday (needed to bring leatherhard vases to a workshop tomorrow) and it knocked me out.

  17. The first day of the Barcelona Potters' Council event is my 35th birthday. NOT. FAIR. :'(

      Try not to hide how you really feel about wedging. Best to just let it out.

  19. I just learned from one of my longtime clients that a bun of hers I made a portrait of passed last night. It always hits deep, hearing that. Through my art, I feel like I know them in spirit. :'( I guess I'm weird...

      I stepped outside this morning to find a warm 34 degrees. We have one car that's good on ice and a truck for snow and flooding.

      Omg it's 35F and it feels soooo WEIRD!! We haven't been this warm in ages! Now we have frozen rain, though...goodie. D: Give me two feet of snow over that Devil Snot any day!

  21. It dropped down to 0F/-17,8c here last night. I wanna fire Fred...but, will my cooling pottery be safe in such frigid temperatures? D:

      I know that Fred is insulated, but one of the windows is broken out, so it's 0F in the garage. It got down to -4F last night... Thankfully, this cold snap is abating. I'm just gonna wait!!

    4. Cavy Fire Studios

      Cavy Fire Studios

      Yep, I'm safe. I'm a big fat rodent with plenty of insulation and lots of layers!! ^_^

  22. Working on a super cute wide-rimmed shallow bowl for my fella as a late Xmas pressie. Gonna be adorable!! ^_^

  23. Yay! Duck and owl posted in the gallery! Had to edit the pics a bit, heehee. :)
