We’ve had some beautiful spring days here in the North Country, but today it is was snowing again. It reminds me of a Mother’s day a long time ago when we had to brush snow away to get at the daffodils.

John is throwing vessels with the last of the winter clay and will be firing a large bisque kiln load next week and probably two back-to-back glazed firings pretty soon.   I’m making glass beads and working on an instructional video for the web site. This will show how I decorate a vase in our Sunset pattern.  It will be riveting stuff, sure to produce some yawns, but I think other artists will enjoy it.  It will be cool to have a YouTube channel.

Up river from here about two miles is a good friend and talented craftsperson Susan Kenyon. She makes fantastic chain bracelets that we’re featuring in our Thousand Island Sun ad next week. I’ll pick a few out and put them up on the site. They are very reasonably priced and feel great on.  Bisque vases waiting for some glaze and a final firing.
