  1. 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! ^_^

  2. Packing for Barcelona leaving tomorrow. Bringing a foil saggar fired pot for a show at Etorn in September.

      Take the time to ride the teleferrico over the harbor and stop in at Cocoa Sampka for an afternoon snack. It's a wonderful city!

  6. My house/studio was burned to the ground in the Valley Fire that started very close to my home. Our street was the first to go and my area is totally destroyed. 75% of the homes in my little town are gone. I had over 300 pots ready for fairs and of course, all the pottery we use daily. I’m devastated. I’m hoping I’ll be able to recover some pots that didn’t break/melt, and maybe my kilns? Wheel? The evacuation order hasn’t been lifted yet. With the shards I’ll make a big mosaic wall when we...

  7. So, guess who got her pottery juried into a gallery for an animal charity event? This rodent! 20% goes to charity and the rest is for me. SO PROUD. ^_^
