Bottle Project-Glazed

Bottles have been completed for some time, these are the 4 best bottles out of 10. The other 6 are on display at the JC in my town, I was awarded the President's award and best of class for ceramics at the last student show. These four will be entered in a local Fine Art Show in September and will also be part of a showcase that is about "Water on Earth" The series is called "Scents of the Sea" From the Top- Sea Clam, Anemone, Tube Worm and Sea Snail. I am marketing to all of those mermaids... These were fired to cone 10 in a highly reduced environment. The finish is a combination of red-iron-oxide and Celedon Glaze.

“Let’s Impeach the President”by Neil Young
Let’s impeach the president for lying

And leading our country into war

Abusing all the power that we gave him
And shipping all our money out the door

He’s the man who hired all the criminals
The White House shadows who hide behind closed doors
And bend the facts to fit with their new stories
Of why we have to send our men to war

Let’s impeach the president for spying
On citizens inside their own homes
Breaking every law in the country
By tapping our computers and telephones

What if Al Qaeda blew up the levees
Would New Orleans have been safer that way
Sheltered by our government’s protection
Or was someone just not home that day?

Let’s impeach the president
For hijacking our religion and using it to get elected
Dividing our country into colors
And still leaving black people neglected

Thank god he’s racking down on steroids
Since he sold his old baseball team
There’s lot of people looking at big trouble
But of course the president is clean

Thank God

The Kittens are growing

This is Peter (Silver), Dahlia(gold) and Prancer (Big Cat). Its been 10 weeks and all of the kits are getting along fine. Although Big Cat does appreciate when the babies get put away in their room for the night. Dahlia was supposed to go live with some very dear friends of ours, but I hate to admit it... I am a Kitten taker backer. How could you not fall in love with these cuties! We are the luckiest people in the world to get to take care of these very special guys and gal.

My Studio

This is my studio, If you look closely there is a baby kitten sleeping in the chair. I am working on some new ceramic pieces right now, using a really bitchin' wooden stamp for design and texture on the back of the pieces. I'll glaze/paint/glaze the surface with some of my fun bugs, turtles, sea-horses and of course kittens.
