New 3D pillow tile by Patricia Griffin
A quick snapshot of a new pillow tile on the wall of my studio gallery in Cambria. These make me smile.

In the works... March is blooming!


Wednesday, March 19, 2014

March is a twirl of making in the studio, punctuated by hikes and events celebrating the beginning of spring on the central coast of California.

Here's what I've been up to...

Progress photos on a new pitcher form and design:

Just starting to layout the design and etch poppies.

Adding black borders and starting to carve the checker pattern.

One side pretty much done... Now to do the other!
Hike in Big Sur... That's the wonderful Pacific Ocean in the background:
March hike to the top of a fire road at Big Sur... Wonderful view of the Pacific.
At the Sea Glass Festival in the little beach town of Cayucus, about 15 minutes from my studio. This little mermaid just put "mermaid tears" on my cheeks for a $1 donation. How cute is that???? (My friend took the picture and then we noticed the "NO PHOTOGRAPHY" sign right in back of us. Oh well.)
This little mermaid just put some "mermaid tears" (little fake stick-on gems) on my cheeks for a buck. Best buck ever spent! I wore 'em all day, even in my studio, so I could show my husband that evening. He was charmed. :)

Party Time!

My workshop to the advanced ceramics students at Allan Hancock College started off with a party. The class showed up with a fancy birthday cake for their beloved instructor Bob Nichols. Such fun to be there for the celebration!

Getting giddy about this collection

I've been designing a new collection of pieces, all in the "woodcut" style etching. Here are some work-in-progress shots for a large vase in the underway.

Saint Valentine was a martyr

But that kind of love is so passé, right?
Let's love ourselves this Valentine's Day!

The Magnificent Trio: Leaving the studio and heavy-laden with pots!

How fun to get a studio visit from my good friends Susan Trihey, Sally Connell and Joan Swenson. We became friends years ago while working at a daily newspaper. These three are among the sharpest women I know, and we've had so much fun together through the years. Good times!

Don't call 'em cute

Well, OK, if you must.
Sometimes you just need a teeny little bowl... especially if it's cute.
