You can almost taste that delicious, cold, sunny afternoon cocktail.
Why not listen to this amazing interview with Cormac McCarthy, Werner Herzog and Lawrence Krauss while you drink?

Here is my cocktail recipe: 2 Shots Bourbon, 5 dashes of Bitters, 1 capful of Sweet Vermouth. 
Not for the faint of heart.

Above is what I made Hannah for Christmas this year, and it looks like they are really taking off. I like the idea of the succulents in the pots, I bet it would look nice with the red body below. Those are some pieces made out of our Sunny Ridge Red clay body that we are currently testing. Inexplicably, for such a high FeO2 content, it fires to Cone 10 and gets highly vitrified. I love the juxtaposition of the geometric elements with such a rich earthy color.

Winter is over. Winter is over?

It has been busy out here recently. Like crazy jungle busy.
 Tests on bodies and glazes, which is lots and lots of fun.

And we have some semblance of a website and new work at:

A New Kiln

Thanks to a hot tip from Tim Ayers, I found this car kiln near our place in Orange County. It took Chris and I about 3 days to dismantle and then put on pallets in one of our sheds. It will take a bit to pour a concrete pad and re-assemble, but I will try to keep updates on here.

Inspirations at a Thrift Store in Homosassa Fl

Thanks to Hannah for taking these pictures.
I love the forms, I think my next long term project is going to be a still life photo series taken in thrift stores across the country.

New Years Day, Swimming with Manatees

Yes, this happened.

On Dec. 31st, Hannah, Nick, Matt and Sita went swimming with the manatee residents of 3 Sisters Springs in Crystal River, FL. We all piled into Matt's mini van, drove to Homosassa, slept in an RV park, woke up at 5am, put on wet suits, met the coolest captain ever (he looked EXACTLY like the Dude in Big Lebowski), and then swam with Florida's most benevolent megafauna, the manatee. Thank you to Captain Glenn (aka the Dude) for taking these amazing pictures!
