I haven't been blogging, but I have been potting! Above is a wedding platter I was commissioned to make for a former student, who will be having not one, not two, but three wedding ceremonies, scattered throughout the end of summer. This is larger than I normally throw, requiring 25 pounds of clay and hopefully, if I did my math right, firing down to 18' in diameter. I have other orders to fulfill as well, notably one for the soon-to-open Center for Maine Craft, an exciting project of the Maine Crafts Association. The Center is currently under construction and is slated to opoen in November of this year.
Studio to-do list:
• Put handles on leatherhard mugs • Throw 2-quart casseroles • Sort inventory
My friend Carolyn was diagnosed with inoperable cancer last year. She has been unable to work due to her illness - she owns her own hair salon. If you can help - any amount helps! - I hope you'll consider it. Click the photo to get to her GoFundMe page. Thanks.
