The fresh Kiln !!!!

Unbricked today, I give it a 8 out of 10.

Thursday, April 8, 2010


The wind has caused a delay in my kiln firing today. I run a downdraft style kiln with a huge chimney and any wind can cause serious atmospheric issues inside the kiln , so here I am online trying to get some promotions lined up for the etsy store.Currently I am relisting some old stuff with a 1 dollar shipping incentive. Check it out through the shop links to the left. Talk at ya later.

Getting Dirty

The spring air has arrived here in Michigan and I find that getting out into the yard has rejuvinated the winter worn body. As artists we tend to spend a lot of time in the studio, not a really "mobile" activity. Being a potter this is even more of a problem. What do I do all day, sit behind a wheel or occasionally stand there and glaze. In either case not much movement is invovled untill the summer shows kick in.
So, with spring arriving getting out in the yard has a most enjoyable quality to it. I get excercise, keep myself busy in a different way and get my hands into the fertile soil that will provide us with our veggies for next few months. This is not only good for the body, but is grand for the soul. Get outside and get dirty !

What is Food.

So, take all the ingredients in what you are eating and lay them on the table. If you can not identify them, then it is NOT FOOD.

WARNING General Rant on Dick Cheney to Follow.

I mean come on dude. Has this guy ever heard , go gently into that good night ? You have had your time and failed. Stop trying to justify your legacy by lying about how "soft" democrats are on terror. First troop levels in the real terrorist combat zone have increased since you where around. Second the bush administration tried terrorists in civilian courts and convicted them. Third you can not justify torture, even if you think you are Jack Bower (is that how you spell his name?) Anyway, go away man. I do believe you are one of those who said that critizing the president is unpatriotic. Sorry had to get that off my chest.

MIA again

Alright, it has been 3 months and figured I should get back in the blog swing. I have been busy in the studio throwing almost everyday and working out some new forms, when I have some good pics I will post them here for you all.

The winter has been long and there has been way to much snow late in the season for my tastes, but what are you going to do.

I am in the process of sorting out some pots leftover from our gallery show the last 2 months, Look for them in the etsy store over the next few weeks.

Summer shows are starting to come together and I will be posting them here as soon as there is enough of them to tantalize you.

Think warm thoughts, talk at ya later.
