On my last Grand Canyon trip I injured my left ring finger. This finger is not super essential to throwing pottery but having it in a splint for eight weeks sure can be a drag. What follows is the beginning of the first body of work I have made since March of this year. ˆ’ll be throwing for two more weeks and firing in time for Spring City Arts studio tour on September 12.

Steve Olpin came by and we visited while I made soup bowl. Steve wandered into my life in the 1980’s and eventually made “The Potter’s Meal”.

While Juniper’s mother was out visiting with Lee she and I went hiking up Canal Canyon. Jun is Gabe’s sister. W had a great time. She brought cookies, pop and an apple which we shared. We took a trail she had never been on before so she was pretty keen to show it to her mom. On the trail we visited Craig’s grave. He was “Uncle Craig” to her.

Of course the doggie boys came along. They would not stand still.
