I’ve rested and travelled and learned and read and shopped and am now excitedly back in clay mode. My Minnesota visit with my daughter gave me time to shop the antique malls for new lace doilies to press into new platters and trays and bowls and new shapes. Currently taking a surface decorating class at South County Art Association (thank you, Anna) which will give me time to rethink and to refine current designs. And as the muddy fields dry, the fire pit calls! Spring 2016 brings new enthusiasm, new ideas, and a happy mojo to my work. Currently loading a bisque kiln filled with lace doily imprinted clay–trays, bowls, oblongs, ovals–experimenting with all shapes and sizes. I’ll have lots to share!
