My carving is quick and loose while the clay is still soft. No mathematical precision here, these pieces are about me enjoying the material. 💗

I just delivered work to @artsondouglas for the New Artists Exhibition (opening February 2nd). If you are in Central Florida, please visit this Gallery! In fact, take a day off and spend it in New Smyrna Beach. You are going to love it - great shops and restaurants, beautiful beaches and fantastic people!

Flower bricks are my favorite.

First carved bowl of the year 💗 I've been making a lot lately, but I haven't been posting. In a weird beginning of the year funk that has me feeling reclusive and out of sorts.

Mugs 58-70, tbh (to be handled) tomorrow. Yeah, they'll need bottoms, too. If you're into that sort of thing.

My goal is to make 120 mugs this month in preparation for upcoming shows. Feeling good about getting 70 going this week, trying not to look at the rest of the list yet.

My new work cycles usually begin with mug making. I'll make loads, smashing the ones that aren't up to snuff as I get back in the groove. .

Oh hey 2019: Let's all try to do more of what brings us joy, less of what harms our world, lighten up about the things that are temporary and get serious about the things that are lasting.

And love a little bit more. ♡
It's too late at night for me to work but here I am, in the studio - with New Year's champagne - choosing lino cuts for future mugs. I love the beginning of the year - so many days ahead, the fresh calendar, all the possibilities and chances. .
So, I'll ask the question I ask myself every year, a line from Granddaddy's "The Group Who Couldn't Say"...... "Are you happy what you're doing?"

"Quick" clean up of a few mugs and then I have to tackle a mountain of laundry before we head out of town.

Purple! Maybe I'm in love, maybe it looks like grape bubble gum. Sometimes it takes me a while to decipher the difference 🤦‍♀️

#handletunnel with some freshly handled mugs. These guys still have to be cleaned up and refined after they sit and rest for a few hours. Any one else calculate the rest time of the clay into their making? Make slabs, rest. Assemble cylinders, rest. Add bottoms, rest. Add handles, rest. Refine and slooooow dry. Porcelain is fussy and can't handle being over-handled. .

Making mugs, pretending the holidays are done. Is it just me or is December way too long? It feels like at least December 57th.

Also, check out my old lady hands! Aging is weird. .
