Participated in a salt firing with Marianne Cordyack and others at her studio in Shannondale, West VA, this weekend. Glazed and loaded on Saturday; fired on Sunday -- about 13 hours and change. We will be opening the kiln this coming Saturday afternoon. Hopefully, lots of goodies.

Just finished up a weekend throwing workshop with Tony Clennell. I can only imagine how much one could learn during a 7-week semester course with Tony up at Sheridan College in Canada. We worked on sectional throwing to make big pots -- jugs, casseroles, salad bowls. Came home with two pieces: a vase and a partially completed casserole. Multiple tries at the lid were unsuccessful and finally ran out of time and clay. Learned a lot, will have to see how I bring it into my work.

A selection of Kohiki vases, ikebana vases, pillow vases, stone textured vases, and leaves are available at The American Horticultural Society's Garden Shop. AHS is located just off the George Washington Parkway at 7931 East Boulevard Drive, Alexandria, VA. The Garden Shop is a wonderful place to pick up a gift item for gardeners. And, take some time to stroll the grounds of AHS which is located on the site of George Washington's historic River Farm.
