Hey Y'all

Hey y'all, I for some truly unknown reason have taken upon myself to start this here blog. I think browsing Ron Philbeck's, Jen Mecca's, and Amy Sander's blogs kind of planted a seed for me to start thinking about articulating some of the reasons why I am a potter and also explain what I am trying to do and get some feedback from all of you blog trotters. It may end up being mostly a journal for me, a record of daily studio happenings, thoughts, frustrations and a quick way to get images out in the world. So here goes, and forgive me for any violations of blog ettiquette.

I biked over to the studio today, beautiful high 60's sunny weather, and worked on getting a bunch of bud vases together for my upcoming sales. I made it in the door around 1pm and after 4 hours of throwing, listening to NPR, and having lunch, I ended up with 40 thrown bud vases. Now, I am always much more productive in my planning of the day than in my actual production, but I have almost come to accept the fact that I am a slow worker and tend to expect a lot more of myself than I actual achieve. Nevertheless, 4 hours and 40 bud vases later I head home for some Nolan time while Kara has an evening out.

Enough for now, more later on.
