Place a cocktail straw in your mouth, close your lips, hold your nose and breathe

This platter (when finished) will be in a silent auction for Pacific Crush, a fundraising cycling event on California's central coast. Funds go to educational-outreach services in Kern County to help people dealing with the threats of uncontrolled asthma and COPD.

Quick and easy description of what if feels like to have asthma:
Place a cocktail straw in your mouth, close your lips, hold your nose and breathe.

Check out Pacific Crush for a wonderful three-day adventure of bicycling and wine tasting!

What do Nick Joerling, Seth Godin, Alyson Stanfield and Carolyn Edlund have in common?


Friday, July 4, 2014

They are among the many voices in my head, and I mention them all in my interview on The Potter's Cast, a weekly show about contemporary potters in the United States.

Paul Blais and I did the interview over Skype and he made it so much fun. You can click on the link to listen, or take the plunge and subscribe on iTunes. It's free and he seems to be doing at least one interview a week.

My gratitude to:

Nick Joerling for his inspiration... and the coffee mug I use every morning.

Seth Godin for so clearly stating the obvious (that only becomes obvious after he says it).

Alyson Stanfield for her Art Biz Incubator.

Carolyn Edlund for helping me map out a trail and stay on it.

I'm interviewed on The Potters Cast!

An aspiration come true

Yes, my work is now at Chambers Gallery, one of the finest fine craft galleries in California. It's a small space filled with wonderful pieces, some made by very "big" names in the fine craft world. I've been visiting for years, and it's such an honor to see my own work among the gems curated by Chambers Gallery owner Gayle Sewell.

This collection of handmade, hand-etched vessels just delivered to Chambers Gallery:

First pieces are emerging from the "Word Vessel" series of work for my show in September. The plan is to post a new piece every Friday. I wonder what next Friday's word will be?
Just say Yes!

Labor of love

What's better than another plaque for your trophy wall?  A mug for your desk!

When the Rotary year ended this month, two of the area clubs thanked their leaders by awarding each of them with a custom mug.

It was an honor and a privilege to do these, truly a labor of love in appreciation for all the work these folks do to help their communities.
