i am at the local co-op gallery, where i am a member. we each work two shifts a month, and mine always sneak up on me. i am very used to not working on a set schedule, and i don't ever want to go back. one of the biggest joys of working for myself is that i am not ware really what day it is...i remember summers in my youth like this... just the feeling of each day being strung into each night. the farmers market is on saturday, so i am keep somewhat in check, but in general the day is just the day, and not a particular name like tuesday...time seems to go by at a faster pace this way. i have been running about one kiln a week which is great. if i can keep this pace up i will be able to appraoch some new galleries. i have my mind set on new morning gallery in asheville, and seven sisiters in black mountain, stitch in north hampton..the possiblities are many. the goal is to switch from doing alot of craft shows..to only couple that i really enjoy doing, and sell most of my work through high-end galleries. here are two large pieces that are in the bisque kiln right now. they are two and half feet tall and functional. i have shown some detail shots...i really like working on this scale, i hope to go larger, hope fully i will get the energy focused to build a groundhog kiln....my friend from philly(hi beth) is calling..peace....on another note..my pictures seem to be posting out of order??/ does anyone know why this is happening?..
