It's a rainy Tuesday. I'm here in my chair, catching up on many loose ends, and realizing that I have been so busy lately I haven't posted an update in a while. This is a good time of year for me. The school year is coming to a close, most of the "heavy lifting" (aka the aforementioned "busy-ness") has just come to an end, and I can anticipate a solid month of (mostly) uninterrupted studio time! I am also just at the beginning of the gardening season. The rain lightly spattering on the windows is a most welcome and refreshing sound as I anticipate turning over the soil, and the wonderful smell of fresh dirt on my hands.
In the meantime the artwork is moving along. All of the ceramic pieces have made it out of the firing sans cracks, and I have begun to experiment with the glazing. the initial experiment was not entirely successful, but I have some ideas which might prove quite lovely. That's the beauty of a failed experiment: when you got nothin', you got nothin' to lose!
In the meantime I am making bees from a little mold made from a dead bee I found. I don't know exactly what I am going to do with them yet, but they seem important.

A place for me to ramble on when I need to take a break.
