Busy in a hot studio

I haven't been very good about keeping up with my blog but I have been busy in a very hot studio.  Temps this month have been in the 90's.

Last week I finished an order for appetizer trays and mugs for a ladies golf tournament.  They will be given as gifts instead of the usual golf related merchandise.  I think this  was a great idea.
I also have been working on the order for Our State Store.  The ordered 30 custom appetizer trays and 30 butter dishes.  The order is not due until August but I am going on vacation back home to Montana for two weeks in July and in early August my son goes to App State with hopes of becoming a History Professor some day.  I will finish the order tomorrow morning when I glaze the third and last batch for the order.
A few weeks ago I taught the pitcher class at Ciel.  Today I unloaded the kiln and you can see the masterpieces shown above.  Upon request I will be teaching a butter dish class in September.  The date and time hasn't been determined yet but should be on the Ciel website soon.

This week I also got this vase out of the kiln.  I was pleased with how it turned out.

Southern Arts Society hosts the Earth and Fire Festival starting tomorrow night.  I have put some really nice items in the show which lasts until July 24th.

On July 9th - 30th five of my cups will be shown at the Drink Up Show sponsored by the Cleveland Arts Council.

Next Friday is the reception for the Collaboratus show at Ciel.  The piece Tina and I worked on (see last post) has come out of the kiln and looks great.  We decided to call it Midnight Flight.  I am really excited to see what collaborations the other artists have been working on.

Lastly I thought I would share a photo of my booth at the Brookgreen Garden Art show from earlier this month.
