Birdsong can conquer the gloom of shorter winter days-- in case you don't have any birds singing in your yard here is a link to listen to a audio clip. Happy Holidays!

I've been going through some old slides of work in the hope that I can eventually get them all scanned and edited.  Some of the slides are pretty bad, the exposure is wrong and the color is off, but I hope with photoshop I can fix them up a bit--at least enough to be presentable.
These two pieces are from around 1999-2001.

The Sly Red Fox

The Sly Red Fox, 9 inches diameter

When I see all the new pieces from this winter and fall I can really tell how the look of my work is changing--less carving and glazing and more surface painting with slips. I'm at a place where I am wondering where it will go...exciting but hard!
Just listed this piece on my Etsy site.

Joe Rowand's Art Collection Auction

Someone just sent me a link to this, it is a vessel sculpture from around 1990.  Back when I used to show at Somerhill Gallery , Mr. Rowand purchased this piece.  Somerhill has closed and he is auctioning off his personal art collection at Leland Little Auction.  I need to get out my old slides and put together an album of my work from back then. I wonder what the bidding will be?  The auction is November 2, 2011.The auction catalog lists hundreds of artworks, fine furnishings and other goods.
