Farm Baby!!!
June 28, 2011

Paula, who owns the farm I live on, and I went on a little field trip today. We went to a dairy farm…

and asked Farmer Cochran for a Jersey calf. May we have that one, Farmer Cochran?

Yes you may, replied Farmer Cochran.

Here she is in our barn. Our new farm baby. Her name is Buttercup and she will have a bell…

At The Farm and In The Studio

This is my garden seat…

I sit on it.

So that I can put on my garden boots…

and go check on my garden and…

the geese.

My first garden bounty supper…

My first garden bounty breakfast…

Made with fresh eggs from our chicken friends…

and garden bounty…

I do have time to make pots!

Here I have put dark slip on cups and have one brushed with the next coat of porcelain slip.

There…all done…

A few bowls to trim…

More slip to apply…

Bud vases to finish…

Getting ready for the 323Clay Sneak Peek! and Grand Opening!

Santa Fe!
June 14, 2011

I just returned from a week in Santa Fe. I am in a show there now, “Decorum” with Nick Bivins and Mike Jabbur…

No, actually I am the one in the middle.

Here are some shots of the show.
Nick slip casts forms and places them on hand crafted wooden trays…

I purchased this soapdish…

Mike’s bread plates…

Santa Fe Clay has a very spacious gallery…

Mike has been making some big stoneware jars…

Sweetie Nick gave Mike and I a tumbler. You can have one, too! Pick one out and call the gallery!

Red dots and red dots!…

This is Birdie Boone. She is taking Mike’s place as Studio Manager.

Mike chose Nick and I to show with him because he thought our work would look nice together.
Do ya think? …

That’s the show!

Santa Fe, Here I Am!
June 8, 2011

Yes, I am in Santa Fe. And you are not. Unless, of course, you are here. Maybe you are going to attend the workshop on Saturday…
I came out a few days early to enjoy the company of my friend, to make a new friend, and to enjoy the spectacular weather.

The drive out was spectacular, as you can see here…

When I travel, I shun typical tourist activities…

…as you can see here.

I did see the Rio Grande from afar…

Very far…

And I did see the Rio Grands from up close…

But not too close…

…I did not get wet.

Tomorrow, I will post pictures of my show with Mike Jabbur and Nick Bivins!
