christa, rae, diana, whitney, sara and me
I promise this is the last post about the Gumps show. The opening was so much fun that I wanted to share these photos taken by Stacy Cahill for Drew Altizer Photography.
The Bay Area Pottery Posse was well represented with work looking almost as beautious as we did....HOT DAMN!

The good news is I received an email from Gene at Gumps a week ago. He's worried that the work I submitted for the Floral Inspired Show will be sold before the show opens. YAY... I was so excited I did a Snoopy Happy Dance. He wanted more work. YAY.... again... I had lots of work to give him. The bad news is he wanted more of the ROSE PIECES.....BOOO...the only work that I didn't have any more of. Of course, this also happens to be the most labor intensive, takes the longest time to dry, work.
Guess who's been frantically rolling roses this past week? I start candling the four little pieces I was able to complete today.It's wet as can be but if the fickle kiln gods are on my side there will be roses at the opening on Thursday night.

This is a study of a work in process. The vase is part of the work that I sent to the Gumps floral inspired show that opens on April 22. rae took the picture of me, looking very goofy (and posted it to Facebook), while I was in glaze mode going crazy with stickers. I am working on earning the title "Queen of Dots"....get the tiara!

Yesterday was our official day to be open - the first Saturday of
every month. Our street was hoppin and boppin with springtime energy
and we actually had some customers...YAHOO!
I met a potter from Montana, Heidi Haugen. She was the purchaser of
a cup I donated to the Portland NCECA cup sale many years ago. It was
great fun meeting her and also knowing that my little piece had been
treasured all these years... Quite a thrill for me actually.
Tomorrow I deliver my floral inspired work to Gumps for their show opening April 22 - another thrill -
to be included in this show (thanks to claymate Sara Paloma for recommending me).
So what are the chills alluded to in the title of this post? It's
raining and pretty darn cold for April...Where's our Spring?
