Display at Potomac (MD) Library

This is the display of pottery I showed at the Potomac Branch of the Montgomery County Library, Potomac, Maryland. The display was available for library patrons to look at during the month of August. Not all the pieces I took and displayed came home . . . a nice thing. Hoping the vases and wares are enjoying their new homes.

Salt Firing

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.

Weekend Workshop with Tony Clennell

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.
