"The chief source of art is man's pleasure in his daily work, which expresses itself and is embodied in that art itself."
William Morris (1834-1896)

Best Wishes to you all.....

The Christmas Song

Chestnuts roasting on an open fire,
Jack Frost nipping on your nose 

Yuletide carols being sung by a choir
And folks dressed up like Eskimos.

Everybody knows a turkey and some mistletoe 

Help to make the season bright. 

Tiny tots with their eyes all aglow, 

Will find it hard to sleep tonight.

They know that Santa's on his way; 

He's loaded lots of toys and goodies on his sleigh. 

And every mother's child is going to spy, 

To see if reindeer really know how to fly.

And so I'm offering this simple phrase, 

To kids from one to ninety-two, 

Although its been said many times, many ways,
A very Merry Christmas to you

Last two kilns of 2010

As we start into December, we head into our R & R time laced with holiday trappings, of course. From now until the ACC Baltimore show in mid February, we get to make pretty much what we want. Yea!
 Here are some parting shots:

Unloaded kiln

Gorgeous White Pines

First look into the second kiln
