I'm back.

Well, I am back. I took a bit of a break on here. I had to. My reoccurring back and sciatica issues have made this last batch of work a tough one. My schedule was pretty much work, take ibuprofen, lay down flat, work, more ibuprofen, lay down flat, work, more ibuprofen...ugh. But I've got just a few more things to glaze and then it's firing time.

Then, of course, it's back to making more work. Christmas is coming and panic has already set in. I've already made about 70 snowflake ornaments and it's going to be in the high 80's today. Does anyone else see something wrong with that?

So, I've posted a few pitchers in the shop. I think they might be my favorite thing to make. I have a couple of pitcher and cups sets going in the kiln as well as a few one off mugs just for fun.

Time to take some ibuprofen and finish glazing...

How nice.

I'm always so tickled when I get a message from some wonderful blogger informing me that they have featured my work...even more tickled when it's a whole posting about my work. So a big THANK YOU to Tonia who featured me on her wonderful blog, Loco-Notions. Click here to check it out. She's found some great artists and lots of really creative and innovative designers.
No work pictures today, so I leave you with Dudley. This is from his vacation with our friend, Andrea, who he stayed with while we were in Mexico.

Back to reality.

Well, sorta. After a long break from work...I'm back! Camping was fun and Mexico was wonderful. Super hot, of course, but we had a great time and the wedding was so very nice.It was a lot nicer out than it looks in the photos. Fortunately the sun wasn't blaring down on us during the ceremony...we fair skinned folk just can't handle it. We went through A LOT of sunscreen.
Now it's back to work. I shipped out all my orders placed while I was gone and went through WAY too many messages. I wasn't able to check my email or Etsy for over a week and it was sooooo weird. I'll be back in the studio, making work, tomorrow. For now, here's some links to some blog press!
First, a nice mention in fookadesigns blog. Be sure to check out Shannon's Etsy shop. She's a wonderful designer!
Second is a mention in the fantastic blog Design Crisis. A post with all things yellow. I've been slowly working on getting our bedroom all yellow, black and white...oh and gray of course...I LOVE yellow and gray.
So thanks to everyone who has featured my work. My little square dishes are becoming famous! They're sitting in the studio blushing...they're so modest.
