I am embarrassed. I have not updated my site for 10 weeks. That is way toooo long. My apologies. I do have a number of excuses though! But first let me show you a few photos of spring inspiration that will show up on pots somewhere down the line.
I have yet to make a pine cone themed pot. WAIT! That is not true! The - THE- very first pot I made was a pinecone themed piece. I still have it somewhere. I will have to dig around to find it. Hopefully I will do that before the next update.
I can do beautiful things with my greens and purples. (You will see that further down the page.) This will show up on a pot.
Aliums are always a favorite.
What an extraordinary flower!
It has been a busy spring. One major event was my son, Chris', high school graduation. Chris is a math and science kid and will be studing aeroengineering at SLU/Parks College.
If you have been following this site for the last five years, you will recognize Aaron here. We was helping me out in the studio for about two years . He is up in Chicago setting up his own studio and stopped by to see me recently. I miss him. I wish he was in town. The lady is Lisa and they look pretty serious.
OK, his is one of my excuses. My computer crashed and burned. I think I have back ups of everything, but I have yet to straighten everything out. The photos I had prepped for an update were lost so only these fairly recent ones are avaialbe. April and May's photos are lost.
Ok on to a few photos. Here is a sweet little pot that sold for a lousy 45 bucks on ebay.
And this one only received bids up to 105 bucks. I don't mind selling them "cheap", but I can't give them away.
This piece is "shivering", that is where the glaze does not "fit" properly and flakes off the pot. I keep glazing and refiring hoping on day I will inadvertently relieve the stree of the glaze fit.
Two that are waiting to be glazed.
Here is one of the most important pieces I have made recently. It is one of my Venom Pots" and I put a lot of color on and in this 14" tall baby.
Finally, two unusual photos. This is Charlie Duke, one of the Apollo astronauts that walked on the moon back in 1972. I collect Apollo stuff and have some photos that I have been sending to the astronauts and asking them to sign. Mr. Duke was most generous with his time. He did something up on the moon that has always intriged me. He took a photo of his family along, set the photo on the moon's surface and took a picture of it laying there next to a few of his foot prints. I asked Charlie if he would sign the photos and then write on them why he did what he did. I also asked if he might have his family members sign the photos. Lo and behold, he and his wife signed the pictures and he wrote the story of his motivation as well. What a nice guy. I still owe him.
And this is Alan Bean doing the same. Alan Bean has always been a picture painter and continues to be prolific. You should google his name and look at his paintings. Beautiful things.
