Busy Summer, AKAR

Holy infrequentness of posting batman!

Guess its been a busy summer, not the least of which is the big Hooper plates project. I took his family crest, and made six prototype platters all using different decorative techniques. Sent 'em out, got 'em back, and got to work duplicating the winner 13 times. Its not done yet but almost done and done enough to breathe easy finally. Here's a peak at the in process...

Just got back from southern Minnesota for a wedding, survived my first mid-West summer extreme storm with 90 mile an hour winds and hail, enjoyed a free first class upgrade from Delta on the way home (bloody marys!) and got home to find a non-descript envelope...


Very exciting, in fact let's say just as exciting as having San Francisco artist Diana Fayt come to MudFire to teach for back-to-back weekend workshops starting Thursday.
