On Display at Artisans

Cross Fire series 19" iridized soda lime glass bowl

After a few weeks of hard work it's nice to see my effort on display at Artisans at Rocky Hill. I am pleased with how the big bowl turned out. This series was just delivered to Artisans today and is already out on display. It makes for a very sparkly table.

Designer Boots


The San Antonio Calligraphy Guild is about to wrap up its' annual summer secrete pal exchange program. This year's theme was western inspired.  Here are examples of the collection of painted and decorated boots being collected from guild artists to be used to decorate the September Program where members will display the items the exchanged throughout the summer. This is always a fun event.

Getting Ready for a Visit to Artisans

I have been working on more peices in the cross fire series to take to Artisans this Saturday. I had done a couple of kiln loads of  plates but wanted to do something with just a little more presence, so I started work on this 20" bowl. Here it is just before its' first firing. It was cold worked last night and went back into the kiln to take shape.

I look forward to taking these peices up to Artisans this Saturday. As we approach the two year anniversary of the Bastrop fires, my heart continues to go out to hose impacted by that tragedy. Working on these peices I recall that September in 2011 when fires dotted across the Bastrop County. I am reminded of the impacts of severe drought, and am grateful for the little bit of rain that fell yesterday.
