Camouflaged Birds

Sort of!  New birdies with the first stage of surface work. When I finished working on them I realized how they matched the fabric on the work table right behind me. Note to self: surround yourself with beauty. I'm off to the garden center, it is beautiful today and should get up to 75 degrees today!

The owl and the rabbit...

Doesn't that sound like the beginning of a story?
Well, I've heard that every picture tells a story.
Here is mine.

It is a cold Monday here, I plan to warm up the studio and do some glazing. 
 Wishing you a warm Monday!

Getting back to work

Little bee pocket vase, terra cotta clay
 The last couple of days have been productive. It feels good to get into some raw clay, make some pieces...wall vases seemed to be on my mind so I started groups of butterfly wall vases, bird vases and little bee vases. Hopefully they will be ready for spring which is just around the corner.

Love Birds

Bali Mynah Love Birds, hand made, slip and glaze painted ceramic wall platter 13" diam. Cathy Kiffney
May I suggest most gently for the sake of these little birds and so many more please, do not support the use feathers as a decorative accessory, I am seeing them more lately. It has always been a fad and because of that many wonderful creatures are experiencing horrible suffering becoming endangered or are already extinct. Another reason for decline is the pet bird trade and loss of habitat.  The Bali Mynah is one of the world's most critically endangered birds.   In fact, it has been hovering immediately above extinction in the wild for several years.
This is a new platter from my slip painted series, Bali Mynah Love Birds, 13" diam.

Fireplace Surrounds Commissions

I've been going through old floppy disks and CD's trying to organize old pictures. It is soooo hard! Some of the old pictures are just horrible.  These are a couple commissions from many years ago, I wish I had a better image of it.  I took this shot with my first digital camera that was a 1.3 megapixel!
