Sweet Ginkgo Blog Candy!

Sweet Ginkgo Blog Candy!

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Just a quickie before I go open the kiln! Always exciting when the door opens. Did the glaze work? Did the pots hold? Did anything explode? And this time, did that reglaze work? Mmmm… More will be revealed. It’s been a day of clearing the decks, putting everything away from yesterday’s TV show 2-4pm. Those two hours always go by so fast! I hope you enjoyed the demos anyway. I was certainly pretty wiped…

Countdown

Countdown

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Happy Sunday to you! 2 hours of TV this afternoon from 2-4 pm. Just 120 minutes. All set, all prepped, all packed.

Fortis in Arduis

Fortis in Arduis

Hi there Thanks for popping in. I was listening to a book last night, and the latin phrase Fortis in Arduis came up. My O level Latin stretched to the translation: Strength in Adversity. Wow, I thought. How appropriate those 3 words are in the world right now. Today. Strength in Adversity, steadfastness in the face of Trouble. Of course I know it’s all shocking. Of course I know it’s overwhelming and frightening. But whatever it is, IT IS WHAT…
