I LOVE this time of year. I was born in April and have always felt it was MY time of year (although summer gives it a run for the title). The warm light, the blossoming trees, the smell of the earth after the light showers we've been having all fill me up with overwhelming spring fever. My work certainly reflects this...from the leafless birch tree pieces I was obsessed with (and still love) in fall and winter to over the top floral work that is coming out of the kiln now. Yesterday was my day to work in the fourth & clay gallery. I came armed with dogwood branches and really spring-a-fied the place.
