what's on the shelf......

Hello out there!!!
It has been so long since I last posted. And if there are still people out there that follow this blog thank you for being patient.......thank you bunches.
Life has been simply put-crazy.
We have had some family emergencies, but thankfully things are looking better each day that passes. We have been very blessed.
On a lighter note, we have also had some really crazy fun shows this spring. The collaborative Alien show with my great artist friend Paige Cox, traveled to Winston Salem and Greensboro. In September, the show will travel to Columbia, SC to Southern Pottery Gallery.
We also had the best "Keep It Local" home show so far. A big thank you to all of you who came out and helped make the show such a success!
With all of that said, I am happy to say that I am recommitting myself to blogging. I have truly missed this connection that the blogisphere allows and the friends I have found out there. And on that note here is what is on my greenware shelf waiting to be bisque fired this week:

pottery lingo:
green ware: formed pottery that is air dried but unfired and, thus, still raw clay.
bisque or bisqueware-is clay that has been hardened through a firing to a lower temperature somewhere around 1600 to 1800 degrees F. Bisque Firing is the first firing to harden the clay for glazing.
