Selling The Green Bean!
August 26, 2014

I planned on keeping my Ford Escort for a long time to come. I like it so much, I was even going to have it painted next year. But my friend was selling his Rav and I couldn’t pass it up. I can load it up for some of my art shows and not have to rent a van.

So, for sale: one Green Bean…

1999 Ford Escort
165,583 miles
Manual transmission
Very good condition
$1400

One owner (me:)
I have taken very good care of the Green Bean. I have a great mechanic and it has always received top quality maintenance.
Just had it tuned up and it gets 34 mpg on the highway.
Everything works! It really is a great little car.
Keeping it at my studio and will put it on Craig’s List soon.

Before And After
August 23, 2014

When I first started making pots at Red Star in the year 2000, I made the bowl on the left. It was the best bowl I was able to make at the time. The other bowl was made recently. I’ve learned a lot!
The bowl on the left will be on the $5 table tomorrow during our sale. The bowl on the right…will not.
Stop and see us at Rafter E!

American iPottery
August 14, 2014

Years ago, before Kate Nielsen began building my first website, she asked me what I wanted. I replied, “I want my pots to spin!” She chuckled then created a very good website sans spinning pottery. The technology just wasn’t there. But now…guess what?

I am included in the new, just out ebook, “American iPottery”,  An image of my pitcher was selected for a chapter page and guess what? Yes! Developed for the iPad, this is an interactive book. Just use your finger to move pots around. See the front side! See the top! See the back side and see the bottom!

If you love ceramics, you will love “American iPottery”. Available from your iTunes store for just $14.99. You can unload the first chapter for free! Purchase to see over 200 galleries of some of the best potters working now in the field of ceramics. This will be a great resource for potters and those who appreciate pottery for years to come.

Don’t forget to check out the chapter lead for my pitcher. Just bring up your iTunes store and search American iPottery. Well, I hope my pitcher is there…I don’t have an iPad but think I should get one soon!

Take a look at the poster for the exhibition showcasing all the pottery that has been included in this new ebook. It opens August 26 in Rockville, Maryland on the campus of Montgomery College. Just click on this: Flyer for Am. iPottery
