Whoo, what a week. Troublesome gave me a bit of a scare yesterday; apparently he got in a fight with something, some time between 10 PM on Monday and 8 AM on Tuesday. I knew he was acting weird (sleeping really heavily and not coming to me when I called) but I didn’t realize how weird until he finally came down low enough from the shelves he was on, and then he growled at me when I picked him up. He has *never* growled at me before, so I rushed him off to an emergency vet visit (after losing Wilder...

I’m catching up on a lot of things this week. Not getting ahead, mind you, but catching up! And I’m heading out of town tomorrow morning — I’ll be bringing some writing work with me, and of course I’ll have access to email and social media, but I won’t be in the studio so anything ordered after about late this afternoon will have to go out Monday. In ceramics, I’m recovering from Socks breaking a bunch of hard work. I’m trying to shrug it off - everyone’s a critic - and focus on more, better work. I have a lot...

These days at HaldeCraft I either feel completely on top of things and that everything gets done, or completely overwhelmed by things and that nothing gets accomplished. And those kind of days can happen back to back! In ceramics, desire for the WTF mugs seems to have calmed down, so that’s allowing me to get some other work done. I had a whole bunch of things I wanted to add to the Colorful Collection by the beginning of October, and hopefully I have enough time now to get those done. It is kind of fun sitting down and doing a...

Just a quick post today - I’m firing the kiln and then as soon as it’s done, I’m heading out of town for a day (maybe two, depending on how tired I am by the time I’d need to decide between driving back tomorrow and going to sleep, haha). There is a lot going on in the studio, though, even though I forgot to whip up a graphic for it. Uhm, have a random photo as a spacer? (tries to distract you with jazzhands) Photo is of Troublesome and Wilder; I mentioned this in the HaldeCult (the HaldeCraft community page...

I wound up traveling last week, hence no Wednesday post this time last week, and this week has been catching up on everything. EVERYTHING! Let’s get to it! Ceramics is my focus this week. I’ve been firing Big Geek every other day, and if I can keep doing that for about another week to ten days, I’ll start feeling caught up. I had some purple WTF mugs last Friday, and plan to have some blue ones this Friday (the 21st), some yellow ones the Friday after that (the 28th), some green ones the week after that (the 4th), and some...
