something you don't see every day

my friend jan invited me to a pit firing next weekend. i've never done one before, but jan says you can get some great effects using dried cow pies in the fuel mix. i promised to pick some up at my sister's since she has cattle. but it's been raining like crazy here, so even the dry ones were wet. here they are on the hood of my car baking in the sun.

first bloom

is a the theme of a show and sale i'll be involved with at the end of april.
as part of the event, a group of artists are collaborating on a wall hanging made up of individual fabric squares put together like a quilt. some of the the squares will be used directly as a canvas for painting, silk screening or similar techniques, while others will have transparent "pockets" to hold 3d work. this 6"x6" tile is my contribution.
