I've been in a bit of a blogging funk of late.  Which is fine I guess.  I am finally getting into the groove in the studio so that will give me material to post.  Today was productive in that I finished up most of the pots from earlier in the week and got some big bowls and plates made.

My next event is Treasures of the Earth, which opens at the Cleveland County Arts Council on Feb. 4th.  I've gotten most of the pots made for that now, just have to get them fired.

I have a bisque cooling as I write this.  I have some new amber tests in there.  The amber glaze has taken a backseat for about 8 months now.  I am trying some variations with gradual increases in the iron oxide percentage to find a light amber and a dark amber.  (Hum that makes me think of beer, too bad there are none in the house).

I had fun doing these finger wipes today.  They were inspired by a pitcher that Doug showed from the Bideford firing.

My pal Tom Gray did a write up on doing trunk shows for me.  I'm going to get it posted soon and that will wrap up the posts I've been doing on selling.

Okay well that's it for now. I'm off to dinner soon with my beautiful wife.
