two days ago jeff and i found crocus's in bloom in the front of our gallery... for a new hampshire girl to see a crocus in february is pretty exciting! i ran into the house for the camera to snap some pics to post on facebook and make my northern friends envious. out the gallery door i went, camera in hand, when all of a sudden like a bar of soap it slipped out of may hand onto to floor of the porch. that was the end of my canon powershot A510. it took great pictures and it was sad to see it broken. on the bright side, since that camera was purchased, prices have dropped and megapixels increased. the old A510 was only 3.2 megapixels. i replaced it with an A495 with 10 megapixels for only $79. i snapped some pics tonight in the studio but the real test will be tomorrow when i take some pics of work with the back drop and lighting set up.
here are some bowls i have been finishing up this weekend... slips applied on the interiors and then the designs are carved through.
might save most of these for a salt firing with a friend in the near future. damn i wish we had a salt kiln!
