Friday we attended the Empty Bowls event for Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina. It gets bigger every year and we are always glad to be there. I'm honored to be asked to do wheel demos at the event.
More and more bowls!
Kimberly and Susan at lunch.
After the event was over we took the equipment back to Clayworks and I ran into Lee Zimmerley glazing her pots.
Friday I found this bumblebee struggling on the ground trying to climb on some dandelions and thought she could use a boost. I got her to climb on the stick and she turned to look right at me for about 20 seconds, then flew away. We had a moment.
Thursday I thought I would try playing with some new rim ideas. These are just sketches; I'm not sure where I want to go with this idea. I think the undulating rims are too much craziness with the collar so I believe I will stick with the smooth rims when making the frilly collars.
When I walked out on Wednesday I was struck by how nice the heuchera looked. It seems to be liking its home.
Wednesday night I went to hear Denny Gerwin speak at The Mint Museum. He covered his education and career so far by reading short stories he wrote about the people and events in his life and how they related to his work. It was nice.
