Mixing glazes and firing kilns.

Things are moving right along in the studio with a few bumps here and there. Most of the mugs for the mug sale are photographed and posted in the shop. They’ll go on sale on Sunday, January 25th at Noon eastern time. Depending on how this next firing goes, there may be a few more […]

Busy busy

Turns out vacations are a good thing. Or what passes for a vacation in my world. I like to work. Driving to southern Utah for the Greyhound Gang‘s Greyhound Gathering, setting up my booth, peddling my wares and volunteering where I can seems to be the best vacation for me. This trip is the F5 […]

From the land of sleet and snow

From the land of sleet and snow

Had enough of the cold? Yes, me too. It occurred to me as I was clipping the Greyhound’s toenails that I have clipped the hound’s nails many times this winter. And that frequency of dog toenail clipping is directly proportional to how long the winter feels. Poor dogs. Long toenails equal not enough walks and […]

Stocking the shop.

Of course I’m going to have to make them available sometime… I guess now is that time. Mug time. I’ve been photographing and measuring, then adding them to my online shop. They’ll go live on Sunday, February 17 at 5PM CST. Looking over them all… and there are more that I didn’t photograph yet… I […]

Helping the hounds

Several years ago, Claudia Presto of the Greyhound Gang, asked me ┬áto create a special piece that could be gifted in remembrance of a greyhound. The winged hound image came out of those discussions. Here is the result – this year in blue green or cream with blue undertones. Available at the Greyhound Gang’s website […]

I killed my flickr account last month. Forgetting that the images on this site were linked from my flickr account, I couldn’t see a downside. Now the archives of this blog are broken. Time to fix. Where to start? I think I’ll do a month every week… I’ve added the latest kiln load to my […]

Square.

Posted

I abandoned my traditional merchant account (i.e. the thing that allows me to process credit cards) and went with Square for events. Here’s why. The merchant account, through my bank, was killing me with fees. I don’t do events every month. Most of my online payments are made via paypal. My bank charged a monthly […]

Hello, World!

Posted

Been a long time, eh? Here’s the short of it: had an open schedule, then a full schedule. Trip to Helena, Montana for Archie Bray Foundation’s 60th anniversary celebration/symposium then preparation and trip to Dewey Beach, Delaware for Greyhounds Reach the Beach 2011. All good and much to write about. So, for those who’ve asked, […]

The process and the pricing

Posted

Does this photo make you as happy as it makes me? The Greyhounds love to run. I love to watch them. And now it is February – one day closer to spring and melt and mud. I can hardly wait. But enough with the weather report. My email inbox is full with inquiries about prices […]
