As the smoke clears


During the blogging blackout I worked on many smaller sculptures. These are pieces roughly 8 inches in length and entirely handmade. I fired them in my kiln then wrapped them in various combustibles and set them on fire along with sawdust and other goodies. Their surface is a result of the smoke and combustibles. No […]

Yummmm…. Coffee. I am hopelessly addicted. I try to keep the addiction at bay – only drink coffee in the morning, drink it by the cup and not by the pot. Sigh. So I want my morning coffee to be an Experience. Part of my Morning Coffee Experience is reaching into the cupboard and pulling […]

Giving away.

Back from Kanab


Kanab, Utah is the site of the Greyhound Gang‘s annual Greyhound Gathering. Whew, boy! It’s a blast. This year Mom and I drove to the gathering, sans dogs (sniff!). What a wonderful time. The Gathering was great. Trip with Mom was nice too. I can’t tell you how cool it is to talk with everyone […]

Going postal.


How cool is this! Several weeks ago, a volunteer from Virginia Greyhound Adoption asked about using a photo they’d seen on this blog. Sounded like a cool idea – magnetic mailbox cover – sold to benefit Greyhound adoption! Get yours here.

Midnight Sun Beading


I posted these photos on facebook last week but I wanted to highlight Renee’s fabulous work here on the blog too. Renee is Midnight Sun Beading. She does these incredible dog jewelry pieces. It’s all bead, hand woven. While it looks similar to a collar, it’s purely decorative. I met Renee at the American Whippet […]

I’m not going to panic.


Eeek! Have you looked at the calendar? The Greyhound Gathering in Kanab, Utah is 8 weeks away. Ulp. I haven’t started. I do have a plan. That plan does not included panic at this time. But I’ve scheduled in room for it, if necessary!

Etsy and my embarrassing dog.


Adding new work to my etsy store. Boxes, feet sculptures, tiles, etc. And the sterling silver pendant is there too. And now for a silly dog story. Annie is a funny dog. She’s clever. She’s not afraid of anything… well, small dogs, she’s not crazy about, but she’s never met a stranger she didn’t like. […]

On the third of October, the Significant Other and I packed up the Element and headed to Dewey Beach, Delaware to Greyhounds Reach the Beach. This is North Dakota. Heading east on Interstate 94 – the beginning of the 1819 miles trip (one way). This is our route. View Larger Map I think this was […]
