Back in the clay groove

It was very nice to get back in the studio and get things going. The weather for the open house was very English--drizzling rain and a bit on the cold side. Suited me fine, having been in Florida where the temperature was in the high seventies and humidity setting in for a 9 month stay. I met some lively new folks, which is always nice! Thanks for coming out.
I have been working on finishing gallery orders and then still have some individual commissions to complete for May.
Got a lovely new book by Emmanuel Cooper, "Ten Thousand Years of Ceramics" or "Ten Thousand Years of Pottery"--can't remember exact title. Anyhoo, it contains all the cultural pots I am interested in: Persian, Micene, South American, Chinese, Korean, Japanese, etc. I had a hard time choosing, as I had a book gift card from my birthday back in January. I must have spent about 3 hours online trying to decide! But it was worth the wait. Check it out if you get a chance.
