Im back in the Studio

I have been on a few trips, We went to Reno then to Point Arena on the California Coast where we stayed at the Light house. We hiked on beaches and walked the beach where the San Andreas Fault goes back to the sea. I picked up some interesting beach sand and hoping to try it with some ash for a glaze. We bought some tiles at the Point Arena Tile Works, great place. We also found a new Pho Restaurant in Reno, we ate there 2 times , it is perfect Pho..
We went to out to see Paul Herman and also his pal Joe Winter. Nona bought a covered Raku container from Joe. His wife did the decorating and it super
We got back just in time to spend 2 more days on building the salt kiln shed. Then took of to go to Mobile for the Alabama Clay Conference. I threw pots in the Potters Council space and saw lots of old friends and met a bunch more. Also the was my 1st Mardi Gra , WOW !!!!!!!!!!!
Then went stay with Sara and Robert Mason at Gulf Breeze and went on boat ride and he built the boat. Also ate lots of shrimp. Went to Pass Christian and stayed at Lisa Watsons place and ate lots of oysters and beer. Also I got to see Brian Nettles set up. He has a brand new studio . It is well lit and I did a couple of demos , that wa fun. He also has a big wood fired kiln.
