Two teapots just out of the kiln. Am busy getting ready to go to China for the International Ceramic Magazine Editors conference in Fuping China. Need to ship some work this weekend, get the studio cleaned and pack!
October is here and winter is in the air. We have been lucky with some indian summer days this week. But as you can see we got some snow on the peaks recently. We are getting ready for winter, staining the deck, draining the hoses, putting furtilizer on the lawn, etc... I am also getting ready for my trip to China. Ordered a phrase book and friends loaned me a couple of other books on China. Am reading about the Terra Cotta Warriors now. Am looking for a good travel pillow for the flight over. Have a couple of long lay overs so it will be a tiring trip. However, I am getting very excited.
Diana Peacock was here for a week visiting. She was joined by her daughter Jenny Sova and grandson Ben. It was so fun to have a 3 year old in the house. We had a cook out last night. Grilled on the deck and had Tommy, Matt Peacock, Jane Pizem, Royal White, Teresa and Jos Rikjs and Richard and myself. Ben was our entertainment. He talked and talked. He made great friends with Royal. Today everyone left after breakfast.
