We had a successful opening Thursday night. There was a pretty good turn out and many nice things said about my work. The hit of the evening was Humpty Dumpty.
The turtle below was originally intended for the show but his bottom detached in front during the bisque firing. I have never had this problem before so why this happened is one of life's little mysteries. I've come up with a couple of ways to work with the break. We'll see, grasshopper....we'll see.....
|Can you see the split ?|
Nina Hope Pfanstiehl, the other clay person in the show did wonderful buildings. The Edward King House, the former Newport Library, was a great favorite by her. For many of her historic interpretations she does photos of the original building. I couldn't quite manage to get her photos in my pictures. I'll get more sorted and posted over the next week.

I had wanted to do a long post on Friday but woke up with a wicked migraine; I finally got rid of it last night. It's goldenrod season; I love autumn but not many of the pollens that abound. Ahh country living.
I'm going to try to get this over to Mud Colony to add to clay happenings around the world.
Enjoy the day and, as always, thanks for stopping by...........*s*
