Empty bowls

Bubble bowl


We are busy throwing pots at the Barn for our local Empty Bowls Event. We are contributing 600 bowls and have about 250 done. Here is the first load out of the kiln. I blew bubbles in the glaze to make the bubble bowl.

Walking in Bear Meadow

When I was in Pennsylvania we went to Bear Meadow to pick wild blueberries.


Picking in the bog

We found blackberries too

Soon it will be time to pick these elderberries

We came upon this doe

We went to Whipple's Dam to hang out on the beach and paddle around in a canoe.

Sir Walter Raleigh


Here is a plate I carved from a picture of Sir Walter Raleigh's ship. I think it was called the Falcon.

Behold the snake charmer! This is based on a sideshow banner by Fred G. Johnson from the 60's.

My niece came to see me and we made some pots. She made this great face mug and called it Treebeard the Ent. It turned out beautifully. I decided I needed some bowls so I made these. The glazes turned out great!
