I was offered my first commission from a friend yesterday and I politely turned it down. I then said I would be happy to let her come to our studio and show her how she can learn how to do it herself. She wants an animal shaped pincushion, I think I can show her how to do that.
Visited the Japanese sponsored pottery with climbing kiln today in Cambodia -threw a pot there as well

Got a three shelf storage and counter top done today. It is starting to get cleaner and more organized every day. I can start making things soon. Got Clay!
got the last pegboard up. Mounted my extruder. Dropped off boxes, plastic and metal at recycling. had some water leak into the kiln shed floor. Snow mounds are still melting a lot. I think I will solve that problems as soon as it warms up.
Working on a dog themed show for April at our cooperative gallery. Dogs on my mind!
got my last heater installed. My studio feels great. No noise, drafts, just warm air. Clay won't freeze unless I lose power. And I have a kerosene heater to back it up.
