cactus, coffee mugs and an indian wedding

Wednesday's photo is of the most beautiful flowering cactus growing in front of a local building. The garden is full of succelents and cacti and they are in full bloom. Very beautiful.

I don't know what this is called, anyone?

Today I played busy catch-up, try to get ahead of the game. I unloaded my bisque kiln, waxed all the pot bottoms, wedged up and threw some new mug forms and a few water pitcher orders. I reclaimed some clay, trimmed the large bowls, checked email, blogs, posted to my blog, checked facebook (wee addiction), made a bunch of phone calls, re-organized my studio calendar, and watered all of my gardens.

The studio will be closed for the next two days as my friend is getting married and this means much visiting and dancing and drinking of red wine. And really, really great indian food. I will post photos next week, hopefully my sari will stay put (I am cheating with safety pins). Enjoy the weekend.

Love, love, love it! Porcelain, right? I wish you taught classes here in New Orleans. That would be fab!!

You know, your work looks so efficient (I'm working on that). When your pots are leatherhard, you don't have any trimming to do, do you?

Would you do a demonstration video and post it? Whenever you have time. (I did see that long list of your daily duties.)

Hi Michele,

I wish I taught class in New Orleans as well. I may be out in April, I will look you up.

I am going to be in the studio today and I will post about my process, theory and practice regarding throwing and trimming and who knows what else.
