Sneak Preview

I'm just about ready for the big show this weekend. Art City Austin is Saturday 4/24 & Sunday 4/25. I just need to clean up a few things and pack up some pots. I'll be setting up tomorrow night and ready for a beautiful weekend in Downtown Austin.

Here are a few sneak preview pics of the new decal wares. My email newsletter went out today. If you didn't get it, sign up on the right hand side of the blog or on my website. That way you won't miss out on any future announcements.

I'm in Booth 304 this weekend near the corner of Guadalupe and Cesar Chavez.
See you there!

Glazing with Yeasayer

Sunday night I went to see Yeasayer at La Zona Rosa. I've been listening to them a lot since I saw them at a music festival in town last year. The show was fantastic and it's been a constant channel on Pandora Radio for me. Check out the song below and then listen to it some more.

I'm finishing up my glazing today.

I'll be firing Ryan's soda-kiln tomorrow so most of the work is just getting a liner glaze for this round. Some of the work will have some line decorations on it...maybe....the rest will get decals applied after the firing.

Art City Ad

I haven't been excited for a Craft Show in a long time I'm looking forward to this one. Maybe it's all the great food I'll get to eat while downtown.

I've been playing around with some simple forms for this firing. As I said earlier, I'll be firing them in my friend Ryan's soda kiln which will give the bare porcelain a nice sheen and a nice medium for the decal application.

I fired a bisque yesterday and have another bisque-load drying. I'll make another bunch Monday & Tuesday of next week, then the making is done and it's glazing and firing time. Art City Austin is going to sneak up quick and since I need some time for applying & firing the decals I actually need to be ready ahead of time....yeah right.

New AOTP Website!

I finally got the AOTP Website up and running. Please check it out here and let me know what you think. I have a few more pages to build but we were ready to get something new up there.

I used Wordpress to build it and even though I'm still figuring out some of it's quirks, I like it and am thinking of switching this blog and my site over to WP.

Other than the website build, I've been busy getting ready for Art City Austin. I'll be firing Ryan's kiln in about a week and a half. I'm pretty excited about my new work. It's all porcelain, lots of fluting, some squaring and in the end it will have lots of decals.

I wish I was at NCECA...never thought I'd say that again but for some reason it seems full of energy this year. Maybe it's because of Michael Connelly's pre-conference got things rolling.
