Getting in some good studio time,
despite the fact that I have been to 3 out of 6
dental appointments.
Don't really feel like doing much after that.
I carry tension in my's caused a few problems :(

Working on bowls this week.
There is something mesmerizing about forming the plaster,
getting my hands into it and shaping it.
Then applying layers of encaustic.
Plaster and encaustic and wonderful partners.
...Do you love this world?
Do you cherish your humble and silky life? ....

Thanks for stopping by, have a wonderful weekend!

I love your work & these plaster bowls are tremendous.
I'm a potter and I'm thinking I might be able to do something similar with (bisqued) clay. Any thoughts?

--sorry about all the dental work :-(

Your bowls are amazing! Sorry to hear of your teeth troubles, I hope they're at least giving you some good pain 'meds'.
