Well....the studio has moved to Jackson, Ca.  The studio is up in the pine trees on almost 9 acres.  The move was pretty smooth but it will take me a while to get up and running enough for classes.   Fences are being built and class layout is being designed.   Hang in there.....classes will be here before you know it!  Namaste

Well...the Corona Virus has changed the world and my studio.  I've been closed since March but I plan on re-opening in June.  We all need to use our creative side.  I will keep everyone posted on my opening date.  I miss all my students.   I keep you all in my heart and prayers.  Namaste💕🙏🏻

2020 has arrived.... loudly and energetically!  The studio has been busy on both days that I'm open.  New students have brought in creativity and energy! The garden has a few varieties of lettuce sprouting up. Radishes and carrots too.  My greenhouse needs repair since we had such strong winds this holiday season.  I also have a panel on the glaze roof that has blown off. I've already had a couple of wine and wheel parties! This is a great way to start the New Year!   Sheba my youngest dog has taken up digging holes in the yard in search for gophers.  Katie my husky-German shepherd caught and ate a rabbit this morning.  I guess they are just acting like dogs! I'll have to get out and weed whack my Labyrinth before the grass grows too tall and I can't see the rock path.  I am grateful for all the rain Southetn California has received.  Keep being creative !  Namaste!🙏🏻

Fall has arrived suddenly!  A few of the leaves on the tree outside my kitchen window have started to turn colors.  I have glued on the magnets for the glaze tiles and only have a couple of tiles that need to be redone.   The studio is running so smoothly right now!

With this cooler weather I have been out cutting back the roses and other plants that have grown too big.  I will begin thinking of planting a few things in the greenhouse before too long!

The summer heat has slowed down the studio.  The evenings are getting darker and fall is on the way. 

I've been making new glaze tiles to display what each glaze looks like on white and dark clay.  Epoxy glue is needed in order to glue the magnets on the back of each tile in order to identify each glaze bucket.  

The gardens have provided me with saucer size tomatoes this season.  I will actually have to do some canning of tomatoes this summer!  The peaches are rippening and am thinking of making some jam!  Happy Summer Harvests!  

This fall I will have many beautiful pumpkins from the garden.  The seeds were from my son last year.  He always gets huge pumpkins to take photos of his adorable sons!  

Working on using a new clay body callled "Frost".  It absorbs water quickly and dries rapidly.  I have to work fast! It has a soft texture but feels like micro sand particles!  It's super white in color so I am excited to see how it fires and takes on glaze.
