There comes a time in every man's life when things change, sometimes for the better ,sometimes for the worse.. While we try to look to the light sometimes all we see is darkness as it creeps like a fog through our lives. That feeling of dread has been haunting me for weeks and it has finally come into the studio. Everywhere I look, it stains my view and I doubt I will ever be totally free of it. I'm talking about red clay of course. I had been throwing Aurora all winter with it's easy clean up and unstained fingers but I sell a lot of red clay pots fired to cone 6 with a gorgeous green glaze and the shows are coming. Most potters throw one clay but some of us are cursed with a love of both. The red clay gets all over everything and is much harder to clean up so it looks like a couple of months of everything being red before a late spring scrubbing and a return to cleanliness.
On a totally different track, I'm waiting by the mailbox for my Dan Finnegan movie to arrive. They are only $ 12.50 and are sure to be up for Oscars next year. You can find out more if you go to his blog ( in my list at the right) and go back a couple of posts. Thanks for stopping by but next time bring coffee.
