Barrel firing number 5 was held on Friday, October 31 -- Halloween so we just had to celebrate. Many people attended the lighting of the barrel but the numbers dwindled quickly until there was just the core group left. We stayed way too late, but it was fun.
On Saturday morning we met at the studio and took the light rail to the convention center for the American Craft Council Show. The ACC show never disappoints and we saw a lot of inspirational work. The artists are always so friendly and love to discuss their technique so there is a lot to absorb and I wish I had taken some notes on the spot. Ahhh... more things to try.
