Keep Making Pots

Life keeps getting in the way of blogging and studio work however, I still was able to get some clay work done like these two vases.  One of my mentors, Ron Meyers, often says keep making pots and I think that is very good advice.  My wish is that we all can find some honorable work that can help keep us sane.

I am so glad that I spent time studying traditional Tibetan meditation practices because I think my head would have spun off my body this month with all the crazy things that happened.  Our beloved dog, Togher, passed on to her next adventure.  Dad's aneurysm surgery was successful but it is time for him to enter a retirement community so, he will not be going home.  Ahhhh, the whole aging process.  The most outrageous news came from the attempted mugging which turned into a shooting of a dear friend Jeffry. 

Jeff is a beloved Cleveland Neon artist and we all hope for his speedy recovery.
See Jeff's story just before his release from hospital:
and if you can donate monies to help with his expenses a fund has been set up:
A fund for Jeff and Cynthia has been set up at Fifth Third Bank under the Jeffry Chiplis Neon Heart fund. You can make donations at any Fifth Third Bank.

If you're not close to a Fifth Third Bank and would like to mail a donation you can do so. To make sure you get a tax deductible receipt for your donation, please include a self-addres​sed, stamped envelope with your donation. You will be sent a receipt in that envelope for your 2010 tax returns.
Mai​l your check or money order to:
Fifth Third Bank
