And the winner is....

Well this has officially been the longest week ever. Spring break is just a few hours away and I'm not sure I'm gonna make it. This years break is later than normal and everyone is feeling it. Tonight Michael and I are headed to the Hamilton Tavern (the H-Tav as we've come to call it) for yummy burgers and some much needed beverages! I will be headed straight to the gym after work in preparation! But I know what your really here for.....

The winner of my March give away! I think this is karma working it's magic because our winner is... Lillyella! A few weeks ago Lillyella featured me on her blog and today I pulled her name out of the hat, well ceramic bowl if you want to be technical:) Ok lillyella, you now have until April 7th to send me your address to claim your prize! ( If you didn't win this round don't fret, I had so much fun with this contest that I am scheming up another as we speak.....stay tuned for the next item up for grabs!

New Ideas.

This weekend I was busy at the Baltimore Clayworks taking a great workshop from Shoko Teruyama and Matt Kelleher. They did demos of building over a bisque mold and Shoko showed us all how she gets her lovely imagery on her pots. They were both really interesting to listen to and I'm glad I finally got some hand building lessons! I have been working more and more with hand building but I never really learned since I was so focused on the potters wheel in school. I pretty much feel like I've been making it up as I go but this weekend I learned that I wasn't that far off! Now I just need to find some time to get into the studio and try some of these new ideas out! Good thing spring break is only 2 days away:)
