Just after my kiln broke I left town to go visit family. I had a great time, but now that I am back I am working double time to catch up. My co-op gallery has been very busy and I am doing my best to keep the shelves stocked. The photo above shows some items that came out of the last good firing. The good news on the kiln is that the part is on the way and should be here Friday.
HOWEVER, there always seems to be "however", starting tomorrow I am going to be in a 4 day Robert Burridge workshop at The Studios of Key West. I took a workshop from him several years ago and I am very excited about this one. There is going to be a plein air emphasis in this workshop that should be amazing. But since the workshop is 9 to 4 each day the kiln repair may have to wait until next Monday.
Even though I haven't been firing I have been making some new items. Last month's portrait workshop got me interested in the human form and I have made some small trays with female figures and faces in black and white only. And I am working on a new small wall turtle similar to the wall fish I make. Next time I post about clay I hope to have some photos of them to show you.
