Beware The Ides Of March
March 15, 2014

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!

What Time Is It?

What will I be doing tomorrow?


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…


Granddaughter! (She’s a little surprised, too.)
