I ended up making a teapot, a small wall piece and a basket bud vase. As I've said before, often when I'm teaching/demonstrating I feel the need to entertain as well as educate (which is not always needed or necessary or even appropriate). Luckily, this time, I don't think I embarrassed myself or scared any small children.

Even though this image is a little fuzzy, this was my recent favorite as it came out of the kiln. It looks like a night scene, with glowing street lights:
This is the train crossing on Sugar Creek Rd., close to the dead end of Davison St.
A detail of the image above:
A similar scene as the first one, but with a completely different color scheme. I've really enjoyed working with new colors and experimenting with line in the borders:
As I've recently discovered/realized that I am indeed a girl (as opposed to the 9 year-old boy that lives inside me....that I often give too much voice to!) I have started to really really like putting pink on this pots. So pink it is!!!!
Come out to Charlotte Foust's studio this Friday or Saturday if you can make it. Like I said before, my dreamy husband is going to be playing some music to create the proper ambiance for the evening, and there will be champange and goodies too. Sounds like a perfect time to check out some art!

The loaded kiln just before firing..Toasty pots ready to come out of the kiln...
Our firemaster, Greg!
Art and Chuck waiting to remove their pieces...
More students hanging out, waiting while the kiln is firing...
I head up to Cornelius tomorrow to teach a handbuilding workshop at the Creative Arts Exchange. I'm looking forward to this short two day class and meeting new students at a new studio.
This weekend is the Art Collective show at Charlotte Foust's studio on Park Rd. in Charlotte. There will be a really nice variety of work for sale- paintings, collages, jewelery, and of course, pottery. I'll have some new work there (hopefully I will post some images of some new trays I just finished) and my husband, Brian will be playing the music for the opening!
Thanks to those of you who came out last weekend for the Clayworks sale! It was nutty crowded! I'm sorry to those of you that I didn't get much of a chance to talk to- I was running the register and was pretty much busy the entire night!
