My studio is a complete disaster. I’m trying to get things under control, a bit at a time. The combination of too much stuff, dislike of cleaning and distractions whenever I start moving things around makes it very hard to get any actual organization going! 247 more words


Raku day

Weekly Specials...uh-oh!

I am definitely behind on my Weekly Special goals. I have finished several other items, but that’s not a good excuse. The whole point of the Weekly Specials is to always have something at hand to work on. 253 more words



It’s been a long time coming, but it’s finally finished—sleeve, label and all!

Surface Design

Ready to move ahead...

Latest group of Weekly Specials—finished. I’m ready to work on something different—a different style–different colors–different shapes…

These small works are so much fun to do. Lots of variety and done quickly, but even more variety is what I’m looking forward to now.
