A few new heart ornaments and gift tags - a sharpie works great to write a name or message on the back.

Those two-tone mums are little bursts of color!
A bowl of 'fresh' rings ...
I have new star ornaments available in white on white clay and in a new shiny turquoise glaze.
My new very dark-brown/black glaze - it's silky and semi-matte!

It's a mess! I'm working on several pieces at the same time, taking a bisque firing out of the kiln, making a new glaze - it doesn't look pretty! But by Mother's Day weekend the glaze firings will hopefully give me some good work and the studio will be ready.

Three clays - red, white and my own blue one - are blended together and hand thrown on a potter's wheel to create a unique pattern on this shallow bowl.
It feels as if you are gazing into space, or maybe into a chocolate/vanilla swirl - yum! With blueberries!
What will you put into it?

This is where I went today to drop off a selection of candle holders: Mandarin Valley Candle Shop at High Hand Nursery (http://highhand.com/) in Loomis. Check out their gorgeous candles at http://mandarinvalley.com/
The shop is in the fruit sheds, a place full of atmosphere. I'm excited to have my work there!

Here is the blended clay trimmed to bring the different colors out and waiting to dry. The lines can range from fine to wider - it depends on how often I wedged the clays together and also on the throwing. If I pull the clay up and push it down several times it gets more mixed together.
Then again, there is also an element of chance which is fun!
These are little candle 'caves' for votives.
The only 'flowers' blooming in front of the studio right now ...

If there were such a thing as a brown zebra and if zebras laid eggs, this is what they might look like. I'm mixing clays again for some candleholders.
Red and white and a thin blue line.
Here they are freshly thrown, messy and the lines are obscured. Trimming tomorrow will bring them out more clearly.
