This butterfly was in my front yard a couple of weeks ago. It's interesting to see how different the front of the wings look compared to the back.
I did a little hand building and have a few other pieces waiting to be wood-fired next month. It's been a long time since I've gotten anything finished since I'm saving up for wood-firing, so I caved in and had them fired in the electric kiln. The first pieces can be used for sushi or soap, but I don't eat sushi or use much bar soap so probably won't be keeping these.
Off to watch the Tour de France, the one sport that I enjoy watching. See ya!
Visit Yosemite or, oh heck, visit every national park in the U.S.
A really good pot is in the details. --Doug Casebeer at the Ceramics Workshop in Jamaica '10
There's only one way to grow while making art: take risks and allow yourself to make a lot of bad work, then look at it. I consider what is working well, what missed the mark or confused the reading, what needs to be adjusted on the next one. --Linda Arbuckle in The Penland Book of Ceramics
All great actions have been simple, and all great pictures are. --Ralph Waldo Emerson
