Customer Appreciation

I would like to say thank you to all my customers at Handmade Arcade yesterday.  I spend many hours creating my work in preparation for craft shows and I appreciate the kind words and purchases that come from putting my product out there.  It is always this time of the year that I receive affirmation and validation for what I do.  For people to want my pottery for themselves or a gift for others and will spend their earnings on those pieces I am truly grateful.  Thanks for sharing a few smiles and laughs with me at my booth again this year!

As soon as I can, I will have the Creature Spoon Rest Family Tree updated with the generation 10 mongrels sold at HA 2014.

Paths in Clay cover

Paths in Clay, a novel

Paths in Clay is a coming-of-age story about Jack, Allan, and Miller; three friends who return to the “palace”, a place where they studied Koh Loh ceramics, an ancient clay tradition passed on from an extinct culture.

When finished with studies, one must depart from the palace and venture out, not returning until they have established a direction or "path" as a clay artist.

Ten years have passed since they left their great Koh Loh Master Potter. Reminiscing about their days as students, Jack, Allan, and Miller embark on their anticipated return to the palace, during a ceremonial kiln firing and celebration - a time when the Master Potter’s former students, their students, friends, and friends of friends all come together to fire their pottery in several wood-fire kilns.

The journey takes them far from their humid tropical region home of the lower peninsula and delivers them to the bitter season of the snowy highlands. When the three men arrive, Jack is face-to-face with his palace-time girlfriend, Kirsten. She informs the three men that their master has grown ill. Amidst a celebration, among old friends, Jack, Allan, and Miller will discover the true nature of their friendships and complete one cycle of their lives and enter the passageway to another. The choices they make will forge ahead a renewed purpose as their roles in clay traditions confirm their paths; passing on Koh Loh clay to the next generations of potters.
