Hi Snail,Have been getting back to work in my studio producing
functional ware to build up depleted inventory from sales over the
holidays.I work cone 6 electric, layering sprayed glazes, up to 6
glazes on each piece, and controlled cooling to promote titanium
crystal growth.I'm also continuing my never ending exploration of zinc
silicate crystalline glazes, also fired at cone 6.

 I wasn’t in Watts, but I was in Ferguson. very close to where I
teach. Some of the local protesters aimed their ire at police cars and
other outwardly visible manifestations of authority. However, the
looting and destruction appeared to be almost entirely the work of
people with no stake in the cause, but merely taking advantage of the
unrest to run wild, and not people with any stake in the neighborhood.
A large number of people from out of town were arrested, including a
group of good ol’ boys from the Ozarks who were caught robbing a gun
store, saying they were 'just headed up to Ferguson to join the
fun’. It only takes a few people to destroy what thousands have

 Enough side chatter…now, back to clay. I am finishing a pair of
portrait busts on commission…client is coming tomorrow for final
approval. What are all of you doing?
