I am excited to say that one of my silver clay pieces has been published in “The Art & Design of Metal Clay Jewelry, and more 2009″ by Holly Gage.  It is a calendar, and is available for purchase through Holly’s site:

My piece, “Large Pearl in Vessel” appears in September, 2009.

With the holidays fast approaching, I’d like to let folks know I’m having two jewelry show/sales.  One is tomorrow, November 16th, at 7405 E Kenyon Ave, Denver, CO.  Easy to find, just south of the new Whole Foods at Tiffany Plaza.  The other is my Open House, December 6 & 7.  More details to follow on that one.  

These rocks are the coolest thing since the Peace Sign, the two on the left came from Martin’s Beach, south of San Francisco.  The other two from my back yard here in the Colorado Rockies. (sorry, the two on the left have been sold.)  Anyway, all you cool, tuff people out there, peace!

My last batch of bronze clay is amazingly diverse–all the colors!!  I filled the metal box with quite a few pieces, and then, it was so full of charcoal, the lid wouldn’t quite fit to make a seal.  I fired this batch, ramping at 500 degrees an hour, to 1550 degrees, then held for 3 hours.  Wow!

We had our Colorado Potters Show & Sale this past weekend.  We had steady sales & good turn out, despite all the bad press about our economy.  I had no expectations of selling lots of work, and actually did surprisingly well.  I sold all but 2 of my platters, all but two olive pitt dishes.  And quite a few small pieces.
