Forgot to post the finished results. I’ve got about 11 cords now. Should be enough for a long firing (12-14 days) and a short glaze firing (2-3 days) this coming summer.
launching a Holiday Sale proved to take up a few days of my attention upon getting back from Michigan. Long days and nights of shooting images. Editing (damn you dust particles on black vinyl photo background) A couple of opening day sales, hoping it takes off. Images and dimensions for pages. All available in the Online Purchasing area of my site.
What a little sweetie my dog Heidi continues to be. She is 13.5 years old and quite a bit slower but all lover, just like the day I got her. It’s been hard over the years to live elsewhere in the country while she’s been here at my family house in Michigan but she has kept my Mom company while I’m away. They are really good for one another. And she’s always been one to hang out while I’m splitting wood for the kiln.
Slowly but surely working my way through the rounds on a perfect, late autumn day, in Michigan.
Wood delivery for the kiln. If you need me, I’ll be in the driveway all week cutting, splitting, and stacking.
sketching at full speed and scale. throwing parts together and discerning more of the potential meanings later.

After a well received opening and show run, the time has come to take down my installation. I sat last night for a time in Present Tense, bookending the experience with a long moment of solitude, just as I had when the install was finished. Back then I wondered if it would work, how it would work? why did I make this? Is it any good? Did it need more? Less? Filled with self doubt and questioning. But slowly, time began to go by and patience set in and self doubt turned to wonder for others. What will they think? Feel? Wonder? Experience? Discover? With most intentions discarded early on, there was only being present in the space. And collectively we found that it was indeed working.

Let’s see if I can figure out this app for mobile blogging off my iPhone 6? Yes!!! Little victories everyday.
Otter Rock beach and surf break from yesterday.
Off we go with a brand new/updated site where you will have the ability to purchase works directly through the marketplace on SquareSpace. I ask for some patience as I am building and designing the particulars and placement of work over the next few weeks. Exciting times at hand as I enter the world of blogging about my studio practice!
