I'm still struggling to find my focus since the wave of visitors and events that have filled the last month. It finally caught up to me yesterday and I didn't quite make it through to the end of our reception in the gallery last night. I then went home and slept for 11 hours! None of this is convenient since I'm going to fire in about a week and a half. One more event this afternoon and I can then aim ALL my energies on this 'endgame'. I did bring out the big torch, inspired by Doug, and made a couple of bigger pots. Having focused on birds this time around, I'm not certain that I have enough pots to fill it. I always need something to worry about!

|Candlesticks in progress...playing with stacking forms. I want to make these 6 feet high one day. Well, maybe 5 feet.|
|We fired some of Hannah and Doug's pots, using a clear glaze (thanks, Ron) . I didn't want to try and replicate their warm rich amber glaze and these are rather stark and handsome in all their glorious whiteness.|
