A new pear, a new gallery

I'm liking this pear, one of the few survivors, I dropped two and broke them, broke the stem off of one and the Raku glaze on one wasn't good at all..... these things are about as bad as my stars as far as survival goes! I have stopped making the stems clay, they are way too fragile, I am using other materials now and I think it's even better.
Other news:
Somehow I have found myself on the steering committee for the new Saxapahaw gallery. There is a new membership meeting this Wednesday night if you are interested in joining.The meeting is at 7pm next to the General Store in Saxapahaw. The gallery will be open at 5:30pm if you want to visit first. The new pub is open too, so you could have dinner before the show....

this is a snazzy pear, I am really liking the mixed media approach to the stem.

Absolutely fabulous pear & that stem is just perfect! Sorry you lost so many though . . . ah the life of clay.
The new gallery sounds exciting! Fun to be at the start-up.
