If raining I will move show to following weekend. (Oct 5-7).
As usual inventory is high and prices are low.
Since I last posted I’ve done three more firings and I have over 500.00 pots.
For my amusement.
I believe in producing what the people desire and I use my surroundings to draw inspiration. Humans, birds, mammals, not many marsupials, plants, fungus amungus, rocks and minerals, water and fire. That just about covers it… Oh yes, the divine as well.
I feel crafting in my blood. Having an Italian heritage, the crafts are a part of my being…..
( Excuse me but there goes another motorcycle! What a bunch of ass holes. I ride my bicycle around town more than those gear-heads and I don’t need a loud muffler! I’ll start seeing them when I stop hearing them. I’ll bet they were the kids with cards between there spokes. Bunch of re@$ards.)
….My ancestors were producing ceramics at the Giuliani statuary in Italy and later started the St.Paul Statuary in St paul, where else?
Playin’ in clay, for me, started on Beech St ., St. Paul, MN. behind the neighbors garage, wow! I doesn’t seem that long ago. Oh wait, I’m 60 so that would mean my first recollection of clay would have been 55 years B.P.
I would create the most spherical mud ball, ever. I recall throwing them against the neighbors garage an watching them explode. I guess that’s when the neighbor came out and instructed me to go home. Alone, behind a neighbors garage, across the street mind you.
I will continue MY story later, as time permits.
(good night for now)
Ok, back to my self.
People are always welcome to call for appointment anytime.
