November

As usual, life moves pretty fast. I am nearing the end of my 3rd semester of grad school and I don't even know how it happened. My work is making slow progression, and hopefully in a new exciting direction.

I am going to be showing some of my new work at the Circa Gallery December 15th as part of an exciting ceramic event, Winter Ware: A Pottery Dessert Formal. If you are in Minneapolis you should stop in and check it out.

Progress Report:

I have finally adapted to my life here in the twin cities and just in time for summer. I recently started bike commuting to school, which I surprisingly love. I also am going to try my hand at gardening. I will surly be posting about that in the future and hopefully with good news of a bountiful harvest, "fingers crossed".

Here are a few images of cups I pulled out of the kiln a few weeks ago.





More images of new post are posted on my flickr, so be sure to check that out.

Where is all my time going?


Or be all three I say.

My first year of grad school has sped by and is nearly over! Only two more years to go and I know they will go by in no time. But as end of this term nears so does the start of summer which is already temping me with warm weather and the smells of plants and earth waking up from the snowy Minnesota winter.

So sitting in my studio glazing pots is becoming a bit painful as all I want to do is go out, bask in the sun, and enjoy myself. But not yet, ahhh the agony. However I am excited to see the fruits of my labor out of the kiln next week.

Eye candy was supplied by sophiemunns.tumblr.com, thank you Seed Capsules



I heart rocks, big time




I really don't know what this is, but the colors are amazing

New Chapters

Nothing beats the feeling of a fresh start to the New Year. Yes that’s right, I’m back on the blog wagon, in fact I have a wagon train of things I'm getting back on board with and I couldn’t be more excited.

Things I love:

This is one of my new books, which is fabulous and is going to take permanent residence in my studio as reference material. There are some of the most gorgeous illustrated educational charts for botany and zoology I have seen in this bad boy, so you should take a look.

What can I say, Alyson Fox is a genius.

Ceramic eye candy, a must.

Studio fright, I’ve got a small case of it. I walk into the studio and my ideas freeze, which has got to come to an end right away. Tomorrow I am giving myself a set goal for the day and see how it fairs. I think part of the problem is I just don’t want to start the not so fun work of making molds and testing slips.
