Vero Beach and more

Vero Beach is a lovely community and the Riverside Children's Theater is an amazing facility. The atmosphere was very festive. The Christmas trees they had on display were beautiful and I met some wonderful women. Here is a photo of my display. It looks very dramatic with the dark background.

I've spent the last two days bringing work into the gallery and redoing my displays. The shelves are nice and full. But I can't wait to get back into the studio. I would like to get some painting done this next week.
I hope every one has a wonderful Thanksgiving. I know I have a lot for which to be thankful.

More Bowls

This large coconut bowl is 14" across and has a blue green back side. It has a star pattern back as do all the bowls. Coconut bowl, $135.

This bowl has a red leaf and flower pattern. I really like the back, that dark red is called "red wagon" and really rich looking. This bowl is 13" across. Red leaf bowl $125.

I call this pattern "wild papaya". I have wild papayas in my yard, the leaves don't look exactly like that, but you get the idea. This bowl is 13" across. All of these bowls are 5 to 6" deep. Wild papaya bowl $125.
As I write this I am waiting to hear from my electrician. My kiln has a problem AGAIN! I pulled the wiring box apart and I can see it won't be a hard repair, but I don't have the skills or tools to do it. So if I can get it repaired today I will almost be on schedule for my Vero Beach show. If not, I'll go to the show with what I have. I do have some metal Christmas ornaments that need painting, so I could do those and take those along.
I want to thank the people who are subscribing to the blog via e-mail.

For the last 18 months I have had supply problems getting the clay I like. I was having friends bring it to me from St. Pete and the Jacksonville area. So, I never knew when I would get clay next. Therefore, I was very stingy how I used the clay and was only making smaller items. But recently a new clay supplier appeared in Miami that carries the clay I like and I can get it trucked down to me. It's costly, but not as costly as trucking it from Jacksonville. The day after I got the clay I sat at my wheel and threw 8 large bowls. I am in the process of decorating and firing them now.
Bowl number one is finished in a pineapple - papaya motif.

Here is a side view.
Pineapple - papaya bowl $125.00
