I really feel like I am just talking to myself whenever I come
here to my blog. Ah well, I guess that is ok.

Big news this week is that I had surgery to remove a mass in my
intestine. All went well....But this recovery at home is SLOW and
painful. I got into the studio for one hour today and all I managed
to get done was pack a small Hosta Plate order to be shipped to England.

BUT...I am recovering and I am very relieved and lucky to have dodged a bullet.

Back to the ice pack.

Best to all.

It's Monday afternoon and I should be in the glaze room glazing but, I just spilled
a bucket of celadon glaze all over the floor!!! See the color on this Hosta Plate.

I decided to get out of there for a bit before starting over. The day seemed to be
jinxed as my husband had no hot water for his shower this morning when getting ready for work and then on the way to work he had a flat tire !!

All in the day of the life of a studio potter.

I came across this very old booth shot from when I was doing outdoor artfairs.
I have not done them for about 8 years while I've been teaching and attempting to sell my
work online instead. I'm starting to think I've narrowed my exposure too much
by avoiding doing shows. My work has in the mean time become much more time intensive and delicate. I'm just not sure that I can handle hauling it around again??? The ongoing dilema of how to get your work out there and still have
time to do your work ???


Was really disappointed that these Lily trio candleholders could not be made into molds. My gallery in L.A.
wanted to mass produce them and get them into Pottery Barn or Crate and Barrel.
How great that would have been ! Ah well... .onto the ongoing marketing tests.

I'm so excited....I'm going to be featured in a book titled

New Work....New Name. I could not think of a name for this new piece until
my sister Betty called it a "Sea Flower". Seems perfect to me. Thanks Betty !

Hawaii order

Lovely order from the Hawaiian Islands

Six of these Hosta Plates went to Hawaii to be given by Leslie to five of
her freinds at a reunion they are planning. The sixth piece goes to Leslie.

I lived in Hawaii for four years and was thrilled to send some of my work
back there. In fact my very first ceramic classes were in Hawaii.

Thanks Leslie. Your order was one of my favorits.

The career of flowers

"The career of flowers differs from ours only in inaudibleness.
I feel more reverence as I grow for these mute creatures whose
suspense or transport may surpass my own."

Emily Dickinson to her cousins
Louise and Frances Norcross,
ca. April 1873

Ah, to be able to think and speak such lovely thoughts.
This quote is from a truely beautiful book that I have just
discovered. "The Paper Garden" by Molly Peacock. In it she
writes about an artist who begins her life's work at 72.
see = http://www.molly@mollypeacock.org A book for any
lover of arts or botony.

When is a container not a container ??

New Work !! I have converted the Lotus Vases in to lidded containers at the request of Shibui Design in Los Angeles. These are potentially to by used as pet urns. I think they would be nice for hiding little treasures you want to save. You could unexpectedly come across whatever you hide in years to come.

If Today be Sweet

A poem for the day! I need to get my head out of the office and all of
the attempts at marketing my pottery in this new cyber world I find myself
floundering in! So I shall fall back onto these sweet words and give myself
a break...

Ah, fill the Cup:---what boots it to repeat
How Time is slipping underneath our Feet:
Why fret about them if TODAY be sweet!

Omar Khayyam

Poem Frost on the Window

I came across this beautiful poem today! It is exactly what I see on my bedroom window each morning!

Frost on the Window

They are the ghosts of the flowers,
the blossoms of fairer hours,
I see on the windowpane.

They died in woodland and heather,
But lo, in this wintery weather
their petals unfold again.

Mary Woodard
Prairie Pioneer
