Too much time has passed since I’ve visited with you. That means things have been happening–which is great! I wrote my first grant on behalf of our new clay guild, Potters of the Wind Rivers (POWR) and we are bringing in Connie Norman from Cheyenne, WY to conduct a workshop. The response has been phenomenal. Check out Connie’s website. I’ve also linked her up on the left side of this page.
I’ve just finished firing the salt kiln in preparation for my participation in NicFest in Casper next weekend. Things came out pretty well. A few clunkers, but that is to be expected. I’ll be posting some pictures for you of the new work a little later.
I’ll be participating in the NicFest Art Fair for the first time next weekend. If you are anywhere near Casper, WY, please come by and say hello. I’ll link that up as well. It is a very fun venue. I’ve also been accepted into the Jackson Hole Art Fair in August, so I must keep hoppin’ in the studio! You’ll also find a link to their website.
Meanwhile, we have been battling flooding in our area. Late snowfall and high temperatures resulted in a dramatic runoff. We are, fortunately, on high ground, but many of our friends were in serious danger. We were able to help with sandbagging and evacuation, but I can’t help wondering, what will happen to all that sand when this is over? There must be a practical use for it. Hmmm . . . At any rate, it appears the worst of the danger is past, and everyone is relaxing a little.
