Beware The Ides Of March

March 15, 2014 - One Response

March 15th. A stumbling block for Caesar, 44BC, and myself, 2006AD. I would not trade my plight for his, however.
One reason I did not follow the path of Julius was the fact that my friends folded 1000 paper cranes to ensure my recovery. It worked! I don’t know anything firsthand about that activity but I’ve been told that Laura D’Angelis was instrumental in the organization of the folding parties, making sure extras were folded for good measure. I was also told that my daughter, Whitney, folded many, many of the cranes.
I visited my brother, Randy, recently and we made a display box for the cranes. They had been hanging in my studio and getting quite dusty. While I unstrung them, cleaning each with a soft cloth, I thought of all the people who were so kind to me during that year. This is a thank you to all of you.

Did you fold a crane for me?

If so, consider yourself partly responsible for the fact that I am here to see this…

Thank you!

That’s right, it is time to glaze.
The vases in the back look small but they are actually not that small…

They are rather like this vase that is in the Rafter E Gallery but I will glaze them green. Bottom shelf, on the left…

Yes, I better get busy because the damp boxes are beginning to fill up with more pots that will need to be glazed soon! …

There are some brand spankin’ new forms tucked in there.
And… here is a picture of my grand spankin’ new…

A Christmas Goal

December 15, 2013 - Leave a Response

I am shipping a porcelain box across the country to someone who stated, “My goal this year has been to try to buy from locally owned businesses, charities, and artists.”
If you, too, see the value in this type of mindful purchasing, check out: www.kcsourcelink.com and/or www.guidestar.org

Also, of course I will suggest that you consider dropping in at Rafter E Studio. Last weekend was so very cold that our holiday tour sales were a bit low. (Big thanks to those of you who came out in that weather!) But this Saturday a few people, with the mindset of the customer quoted above, came to RE and the sales made up for the previous weekend.
It doesn’t take much to adjust the bottom line of a small business or charity.

Rafter E is open on Saturdays 12-5pm for stress free shopping. We also keep the gallery open during the week when we are working…which is most of the time. You are most welcome to email me to visit at a time that is convenient for you. We have items from $20 on up.
Happy Holidays!
