Lee and I returned from the river (Grand Canyon 12 days) on Tuesday. I fired the wood kiln yesterday on about 4.5 hours sleep. There will be lots of new pots for the studio tour event. We will both be in our studios Saturday and hope to see you.

There is nothing like fresh clay, newly formed into a vessel and still sitting on the wheel waiting transfer to a board. When I fire I am looking for anything that helps save some of that beauty.
