  1. Waiting for my kiln to cool down. It's like torture.

  2. studio maintenance in the works. Building 3 raku kilns in the next few days. I have a workshop on South Padre Island and need to replace my old worn out rusted barrel. Also trying a smaller version with steel facing that I have had for years 20" wide. I have had this idea for several years just didn't want to do it. Today is beautiful, sunny and 61 F.

  3. Wet sponged all shelves and ware boards in studio now yesterday. Slowly cleaning the studio up

  5. Just did an initial mix of my dry Laguna glazes. I've been buying premixed all this time. I feel kind of like I'm making a cake from boxed mix after buying them at bakeries all my life. ;) One day I'll make one from scratch.

  6. Ah the joys of spraying glazes in a winter storm outside in 36 degree weather. What a life! Ceramics!

  8. A fireplace makes a pretty comfortable place to brush underglaze details...particularly when it is chilly in the studio :)

  9. 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...

  12. Semester classes begin tomorrow...I'm calling myself a student rather than instructor...let's see how that works out :)

  13. Picked up my compressor and sprayers today. Going to hook it all up tomorrow and start practicing. Really excited about the ability to control my glaze application a lot more than dipping and brushing.

  14. Getting back into the swing of things, finally! Did a bunch of small treat trays, using my new slab roller-felt good to do "something--anything" LOL.

  16. What is the difference between arrogance and confidence? Arrogance requires a voice, confidence is assured even when silent.

  17. I am gearing for 2016. excited about new ideas and direction.

  18. Moving studios at the moment. Let's hope the new one isn't as noisy as the last.

  19. About to get off my butt and do a sagger firing!

  20. Firing over 200 test tiles in the next few days over 4 glaze firings. Normal Slow Glaze ^6, Slow Glaze ^5+1Hour Hold, Slow Glaze ^6 + slow cool, Slow Glaze ^6 super slow cool. Want to see all the variants of the same glazes and how they behave differently. Should be interesting.

  21. My family loves me! My one present this year was a barely used 10 cu ft electric kiln!!
