It's show time!

Along with my bowl orders I am preparing for an upcoming show. Thank goodness I am finally feeling more inspired!

For this show I am working on some wall pieces and larger house forms. My ideas for this work have to do with renewal, growth, beginnings, etc.. Obviously all relating to my new life and finding "me" again.

I am also teaching at Clayworks and have another great group of students. This session we are making hand-built items for the table- salt & pepper shakers, covered butter dishes, cream & sugar sets, center pieces and a casserole. I decided it was time for some fresh stamps below are a few of the new designs.

What's up...

I have been struggling to get back into the "making mode" since the holidays. Just not really in the mood. I don't know why,  just feeling very LAZY!!! Maybe it was that big push to get everything done before Christmas, whatever the reason I need to get over it and get productive.

I did spend some time cleaning the studio and organizing which it was in dire need so I am happy to have a clean place to work.  Pictured are last weeks accomplishments. I made a good number of wobbly bowls and I have been commissioned to make some trays for awards and of course the never ending construction of the houses.
