Hey everyone, how are you on this yet again rainy morning. Has anyone built that ark yet? We're gonna need it soon....
A bird has built a beautiful nest in my studio. I haven't finished closing in the roof yet, had to make some pottery, and so this little bird has found it's way in. The nest is really a work of art, the leaves and sticks sort of cascade over my books. Guess I will have some babies soon, not such an empty nest after all! Meredith, it's going to be pretty weird if it's that blue bird that has hopped around here since Lee left!
When the over the pond visitors were here they came with gifts. Hollis sent this very pretty wall vase with Doug for my studio. I haven't decided yet what it will be used for, but I am liking my brushes in it right now. It may be for flowers, I could make a habit of bringing in fresh flowers to the studio, that would be nice. Hanna and Ang left me small gifts too, but I haven't photographed them yet, we'll save that for another post. I'm busy busy right now getting work priced and packed for the NC Craft gallery show that opens this coming Sunday. Wouldn't you know the reception will be Mother's Day weekend. I sent out a group email and got many many replies "I'll be out of town".
Maybe someone will come for the reception, it will be the Friday artwalk and hopefully people will be out for the wine and food. No worries, the show will be all month and I find it very hard to stand in front of my work and talk about it, so awkward. I do like meeting the folks that buy my work, but when they gush over it, I get skwirmy. It's very nice to hear and appreciated, but it's weird for me. Anyway, if you can make it to the reception, I would love to see you!
Well, I'm off to fire my kiln for a final load. How is it I have known about this show for a year and I am firing a kiln 4 days before the work is due? We all do this don't we?
