Wishing Everyone A Joyous Holiday!

I've been thinking about my Blog the past few weeks, but haven't had the time to post! I made and fired two loads of ceramics in the past month .... at least 100 pieces! I have a large gas kiln outside and it's quite manageable now since I bought lighter shelves last year. The shelves are 12" x 24". So I use the old heavy shelves for the two bottom layers and have no problem lifting the new shelves up high (head high). What did I do with all the extra old shelves? My son built a pizza oven and we decided the heavy 1" thick shelves would be great for the walls! He recently finished it and says it works great. I'm looking forward to buying some pizza dough from Trader Joe's, along with toppings, and heading over ....

Also, I spent the past couple weeks working with gourds. I went crazy for a while ordering them ... Now it's time to do something with them. I photographed and posted three today on

Have a wonderful holiday, everyone!
