say hello

Hello! It's been such a whirlwind of making the past 2 weeks I can't believe how time has flown by! I'm just popping in to invite you to come out for the Art Star Craft Bazaar. This is my 3rd year doing the show and I couldn't be more pleased to be included yet again!! The Art Star gals put on such a good event and this year there is awesome live music from a few very well chosen local bands. It's sure to be quite the indie arts fest! Click on the image above for location details. I hope to see you there, I'm booth #8 if you'd like to say hello.
xoxo, Linda

baltimore's so nice

Baltimore's so nice I'm going there twice!
I was just accepted into the Charm City Craft Mafia's summer show - Pile of Craft!! Thanks CCCM!!! I'm looking forward to a great show, I can't wait to see who else was accepted!

And twice?! Oh yes indeedy! We'll head back in July to sweat it out at DIY@Artscape for 3 days. And for you Baltimore travelers, please let me know if you have a hotel recommendation with free wifi!
So it's a big old studio day for me, there's glazing to do and alot of it! And since I always forget to followup here with information from previous posts, my new glaze is working out very well. I'll be able to do a final fire with it by sunday!! I tested it a zillion times to be sure. And our anniversary was lovely! My present for the Mr. was a wee digital camera so he can take it on motorcycle rides! And he got me a box of goodies that I'll have to snap a picture of. My favorite though is a handmade antique locket, now to figure out what to put in it!
Happy Friday!! And Happy Mother's Day to all the momma readers!

a working holiday

Six years ago today the mr. and I got married, awww, so nice! We'll do some celebrating tonite : ) I got him a little present I think he'll really like!

Since he had to work today, I'm working too, I have 38 bottle vases to etch and carve. And what is hopefully the last test fire of a new glaze is happening right now! I think I might love the new glaze, I'll know for sure tomorrow! Ah, the excitement of formulating. For any potters that are reading, my old glaze was sitting weird on certain colors, it's a new batch of clay. Same clay, different batch, ugh!!!!

Check out my site for my show schedule, I'll be doing the Art Star show again, and trying something new, DIY@Artscape in Baltimore. You can follow along here as I get ready.

Have a happy day! Linda

Some might think I'm crazy but I've decided to revise my website again. This time I am working on a look book like feel. This is such a fun project, and the timing is perfect to get me outside to enjoy the nice weather. It is also an escape from some of the not so fun studio issues I've been having. It seems like each spring I run into some sort of technical problem and show season starts in just a few weeks. To tackle the problem I have my wee test kiln working overtime, so maybe this weekend I can get back to the firing of the big stuff. I'm having a bloring(an issue too boring to blog about) glaze problem. I'll snap a pic in the studio tomorrow - it's nuts in there right now, platters both round and rectangular are quite abundant. And vases, oh the vases to hold all those beautiful spring blossoms!

Happy May!!!
