Off to a Good Start

I expect since I started this on Friday the 13th that it will be a very good year! And we have two more Fri the 13ths to come (April and July). I find them to be lucky days.

We spent several days in Asheville and had a great time, exhibited at The Best of  Our State on Friday and Sat and then were on our own on Sunday and Monday and then the gem show on Tuesday before we headed home. We had lots of fun, ate great meals and enjoyed ourselves.

Glazing three shelves of stones...some refires, some new
freshly fired
So now, this what is what I have been doing. Refires and new fires, getting ready to head into the new year, but with lot of new ideas and thoughts. Isn't that what we are supposed to be thinking and doing?

Cheers to a good year...I hope to find new ideas that will make my work new and vibrant and different.  Thank you to all my wonderful and lovely supporters. I hope we can grow together this year!
Kiln loaded with stones and refires, those elements are a bit unnvering but ther came through and the stones look great!
