as I wait for the past 2weeks of pots to dry and be bisque fired
I keep returning to this one
nice worn turquoise glaze with fluid and flowing movement
stark and simple but with tremendous nuance
continued steady progress... but will they sell?
that is the pressing question...

Ribbed Vase

a nice vase from the wood kiln with Ribs and Crust
10in.H x 3.75in.W


a salamander on the front porch
after a long day of soccer and driving

dusk last night...
the family has survived thus far
I try to let them know they are safe here
most especially at this time of year,
though there are few apples for them as the crop
was very poor
so many generations of this line have grown up here
it has been a pleasure to watch them...

the drive...

another beautiful fall day
the drive heading out...
gallery's open!

sources for surface qualities show up all the time
often from the most surprising places
this... the side of an evaporation pan
from on top of the studio wood stove
lots of cinnamon and vinegar...
time to consider some sedimentary layering perhaps?

crabapples in the morning...

thawing frost on crabapple this morning...

Like an echo
the drip-drop-drip of showers:
falling autumn leaves.
