  1. Okay, THIS one is my fave. I love the blue float glaze with the soft pink of the roses!
  2. Those roses look beautiful. They add a real variety to the rest of the flower series. Plus, red is my favorite color! Win! <3
  3. 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.

  4. UHHHHH... Dang, son! You`re a cutie-patootie!
  5. 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... :'(

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

  7. Aww, thanks guys! ♥ I really appreciate all the love!
  8. I FINALLY uploaded the glazed and finished fox head to the gallery! :) Sorry it took so long; I habs no internets...boohoo...

    This will probably be filled in pretty slowly, but I'm starting my new clay journey with handbuilt sculptures. :)
  10. From the album: 2017 Stuff

    The final result of my first animal head sculpture. I'm quite pleased with how this turned out--as you can imagine, I was sweating when this piece was in the kiln!! My fella, its intended and current owner, was extremely happy when he got it for Christmas. <3 Sculpted from Clay Art Center (of Tacoma)'s Xtra White lowfire earthenware, painted with Amaco, Mayco, Duncan, and Clay Art Center underglaze, fired to ^03.

  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. ♥

  17. Omg I LOVE THESE! They are so wonky and fun and awesome!
  18. 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! ^_^

      We've been together a year and a half, and no way his butt is takin' off on me. ^_^ He's an artist, too! ♥

      In a couple of more weeks; wife and I are coming up on 35 years.Just to remind you- it can be done!

  19. These are great! Their minimalist decoration is really beautiful. Kinda reminds me of ink wash and watercolor.
  20. That's it...no more wedging for me. Time to bust out a rolling pin and start slabbin'.
