I have a new red glaze that I LOVE! I've only tried it out on handbuilt pieces. I'll see what I think of it on some wheelthrown work later. My new year's resolution for the studio is to photograph my work in more favorable conditions. It's difficult for you to see what I see because of bad lighting and background. So there it is - a goal published in a public forum. I'll surely keep it now!

Here comes the Sun(flower)

Winter is just barely here and I'm thinking about sunflowers. Great big bright sunflowers. Brian planted a bunch 2 years ago and they wanted to take over the garden this summer. It was so fun to have them popping up all over the place. The birds and bees loved them. The kids loved them. I loved them. When I'm freezing cold - which I am often these days - I like to think warm thoughts. So here's a little reminder that even though winter has just gotten started, summer will make an appearance again.
