These pieces have been made and are now drying on my kitchen counter. In the winter, many times I bring my finished work into the kitchen for several day of drying before the first firing (bisque firing). I will glaze these pieces after they are bisque and then raku fire them. It is always a guessing game in the winter for a firing day. I like it to be in the mid 50's and those days are few and far between. I will post pictures of these pieces when they are finally fired. I will also post my spring schedule soon.

These are two new pieces that are part of a gallery show in Winston-Salem at the Gallery of the Arts. It is a show that features work that is 10" x 10", and under $100.00. The first piece is a Locked Box. If you lift the piece on the front the box will open. The second piece is a new concept, Raku Canyon. I love the southwest landscape and have done many painting from that area. I have never created the love of those rocks and canyons in clay. Why not?
