Back into the Studio 2015

The day after my big Holiday Sale, I broke my finger. I crushed the tip of my middle finger by rolling it into the slab roller. Yup! So I did what the doctor said and stayed out of the studio for six weeks. Getting ack into the studio felt great. My finger is still numb but I can manage. I have many special orders to fill from the Holiday Sale. So far so good. Let 2015 be extremely creative.

Sweetening the Pot with Mark Hewitt at LaMeridiana

Back to Italy! It was an amazing trip that consisted of beautiful cities, countrysides, great friends new and old, out of this world food, wine and beer. Oh and the Pots! Words can’t describe the excitment, intensity, fustration, camaraderie and just plain sheer enjoyment of working in clay for a couple of weeks.
