whew – last week was a hot one. I was out-of-town visiting my parents who thankfully have central air and power… I was hoping to use my time to write some longer posts while the kids were occupied but I blinked and the week was over. It’s too darn hot to do much outside or fire kilns soooo I took up a knitting project. I am not sure what inspired me to make a 100% wool hat in 100 degree weather but it gave my hands something to do. Perhaps my inspiration came from my first batch of clay buttons… I made them with larger holes for chunky yarn. This is a little tab hat that is secured with a button, I need at least one hat to try them out on!
After touring the ann arbor art fair, I’m eager to commit to my first show or two… the process is so daunting. I saw lots of potters and one bookmaker but nobody making clay journals. I like that – authenticity. I also picked up this little book at Borders (the day before they started liquidating bummer). I have read quite a few articles online but it is so helpful to read in a cohesive order.
