Abstact palms

I have "misplaced" my camera. I have been looking for it for two weeks and I have finally given up. I borrowed one today to take this photo. These palms are part of my on going revisionist landscape series.

Pointing the way to Margaritaville

These cute little flip flops point the way to Margaritaville. Find them (in a week or two) at
Look at these cute little turtle shaped coasters. I'm trying to think of more shaped coasters I can do.

Stars on the water

This painting was started last fall and it has been sitting on the easel daring me to try and finish it. So I worked on it yesterday, thought it was finished, saw some things I didn't like and worked on it again today. Now I think it is finished, but I will look at it a couple of days before I'm sure. It is a large painting 30" x 40" and I am looking forward to taking it into the gallery.

Top shelf

These four pieces were on the top shelf of the last firing. They are two colanders and two batter bowls. The two pottery colanders I have in my kitchen always seem to be in use. I don't bake that often, but when I do I love! the batter bowl. The spout makes getting the batter into the pan much neater.
Batter bowls and colanders, $58.00 each

A Peek inside the kiln.

This is a glaze fire that I am unloading. The glaze fire is the second firing these pieces have been through. I had already unloaded the top shelf when I decided to take pictures of the pieces as they come out of the kiln. This is the second shelf down from the top.
Because that heron platter has glaze on the bottom I placed it on a special 3-prong stilt to keep it from sticking to the shelf. Since it is sort of floating above the shelf I could set some flat pieces under it.

This pineapple platter came out great. I'll give more details about it in the next post.

These flat pieces are sitting in special holders made for tiles. I have to wipe the glaze off the area that is touching the holder before I set them in the holder. I will show more pictures of these items with prices in the next post.
Everyone have a great day.

Now showing at

Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville Store and on-line store has added a Made in Key West Section. It features work by local artists. They get serveral items from me. Just out of the kiln and headed their way are these fish spoon rests and these small Key West flip flop ornaments. I think these are going to be on-line and in the store. It is always good to ride on Jimmy's coat tails. These items are also available in 7 Artists Key West gallery.
