Back to Claying

I finally started to do some claying again, not much mind you but some. I have a sculpture in the oven right now, I want to do something exotic with her, not sure what though. It's a beautiful day although hot but it certainly is better weather than what we have been having.
I already have booked our holiday in January ,2009, in Cuba. It might be the last time we go , with the rising costs of gas, it puts the airport taxes up and by next year who knows how much it will be.
We are going to the city tomorrow to spend the weekend with G's family, hope the weather will be good for us

I went shopping yesterday to Michaels and bought a batch of clay , it was onsale for only $1.00,imagine. I guess I better get busy with dinner.

Back Again

I haven't been around much to do much posting, I have been so busy getting ready for my first large show and then recuperating from doing it. It was a cold and miserable weekend and the crowds were just not coming out. However I met a lot of nice people and learned a lot. I have another small show coming up in August and then nothing until October. I posted some pictures of my booth at the show.

I am a messy worker and my little studio was such a mess, I could'nt fine anything. I am just about finished rearranging my studio, so hypothetically speaking I should be able to find all my tools and such. However I have forgotten where I put everything. I guess I will have to get busy and do some claying so I will get used to it. I'm not sure what to do next , I havent thought that far ahead but I guess I should start. I think I would like to do something with translucent or some mokume gane, love that technique.
I have also been considering doing some demos but I have never done anything like that and I'm really nervous.
I better go and read my mail , have a great night.
