I am happy to be working hard the past few weeks to get ready for Craft n Outlaws this Saturday.  My first trip to this craft fair has come with much anticipation.  Proudly I wired my kiln, the first major electrical project I have done myself, thanks to the knowledge given to me by Devin while helping him install electric heaters a couple years ago.  Previously he helped me hook up the kilns at my old house and now the fears that come with doing electrical work have been exercised. So, it has been a busy schedule of making and firing work - resurrecting my glazes and decals.  I have been really excited to make and glaze the spoonrests as well as bustin' out the pin up girls!

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.
