on my way

to Madrid! I will be out of touch for a couple of weeks. I am looking forward to my visit there with my sister and her daughter--one of my lovely and beloved nieces!

Expect to come home eager to be in the studio and on the blog.

Till then, adios!

not getting there

I am having trouble getting into the studio these days. Good thing I'm not trying to support myself off my pottery production. I have just a few pieces of earthenware that I am eager to fire--but not enough for a kiln load. I am distracted by the upcoming big events here: Kenny is having surgery--to implant a little baclofen pump which we hope help calm the tremors he is having in his legs and arms that really interferes with his functioning; and 3 days later I leave for a 2 week trip to Madrid, Spain with my sister to visit her daughter who lives there. Kenny will be in the rehab hospital while I'm gone--good planning, I hope!
A blogging friend, Linda Starr, is passing through San Antonio soon and we may load the kiln with her work and mine for the bisque firing. Her mobile studio adventure is quite impressive--and a bit scary, too.
If you have suggestions for my Madrid (and perhaps Lisbon) visit do let me know!
