Discussion Group and Evening Eats

Not this one, the other one...

Our Santa Cruz Creativity Discussion Group was supposed to meet at the Red Apple Cafe for breakfast on Saturday morning. I even picked out the location this time. Turns out, there are two Red Apple Cafes. Guess who went to the wrong one? After a short drive, thankfully, I finally ended up eating breakfast with my patient friends. Later on in the day, I celebrated my birthday, and Grant's birthday with dinner in Palo Alto at Joya. It's always a treat to meet for our annual Wright/Hansen Birthday Dinner. The tapas were tasty, and we barely saved room for the churros dipped in chocolate… I'm so thankful for good friends, who help me through the tough times, and fill my life with joy.

Amy made us some jam to take home...

A pretty wonderful birthday gift...
This present is marvelous...

Before Looks a Bit Too Much Like After

Before.
During.
More During.
After.

The Hiatus Has Been Tabled...

Normally, I stop working in October during Open Studios...
But, I have a table base that I like, and it needs a new top...
So, I've made some tiles for a new top...
The dots in the center will be chartreuse...
And, they'll have underglaze pencil work after the next firing...

Lynn Landor at Berkeley Potters Guild

These cups were in the Berkeley Potters Guild Gallery...
Still life against the studio back wall...
Lidded cups...
From a box of tiny face cups...
Speckled bird lid...
Face cup and patterned cup...
