It is hard to believe I started to write a blog in 2006. So much has changed in my work and life. What a difference 6 years makes with growing children. When I started this they were 6 and 4. Still needing lots of care from mom. Now they are 12 and 9 and pretty self sufficient (in the house) and I have lots more studio time.
Jumping forward, this summer has continued to bring me lots of new discoveries of what I can manage as a artist. I have been applying and excepted at high end fine art shows. I have been able to keep up with orders and family. I think I can finally take some decent photos of my work. Now I am opening a new online shop and pulling all those social media threads together.
I like to report I am still happily working as a potter after six years and growing the whole time.

These pictures are from the last show of the year at the "Kids Work Children's Museum" in Frankfort Il. This show was kind of a celebration of the museums first weeks of being open. Downtown Frankfort hosts a "midnight madness" shopping spree and all of the stores stay open until Midnight.

The dinner guests were communally seated at tables of ten. I got to visit with two different tables that night. The attendees were of diverse occupational back grounds but shared a common interest in food. Some guests traveled just walking distance from their homes to attend the dinner, others flew in from the east coast. The pork ravioli's were plated on my brand spankin' new 8 by 8" dishes. This is a picture of the serving line up. All pictures of the plating's meant that I was IN THE WAY. At least all of the severs cut me a bit of a break when I said "please let me shoot this".
The night ended with lots of happy people looking for the next party. My dishes next scheduled appearance will be at the Faith's Farm dinner on October 18th with City Provisions firstname.lastname@example.org .
