Saturday - Afternoon/Evening

Later, while working at Clayworks Elaine, Caroline, and I decided to take a look at the new Niki de Saint Phalle installation on the green.  Since it was a beautiful day, we decided to walk the several blocks.  What we didn't factor in was that while the St. Patrick's Day parade was over, the street festival was going full tilt.  We had to wade through a sea of revelers and wait several minutes at each piece just to get a photo without kids (and adults) covering it.

It was worth the walk and the waiting.  The sculptures are amazing.  Believe me, my pictures do not do them justice.  If you get the chance, you need to come see them in the next five months before they are gone.

After enjoying the artwork, we waded into the crowds to get some festival food for lunch.  Mmm...  Italian and Polish sausages at the St. Patrick's Day festival.  Who knew?

Once we got back to the studio I helped Adrienne sieve some of her glaze and started making pots to raku for an upcoming fundraiser.

Before going home, I stopped at the grocery store and bought a couple of steaks to grill for supper.

It was a(nother) good day.

The Skull.

Elaine by the skull.

The back of the skull.

Several mosaics cover the back.

Inside, it's full of mirrors.

A lot of people.
