Donkey? Yes.

In reply to the mysterious comment I recieved a few posts back. It is funny you ask, I HAVE been doing some research on the subject. Here is a picture I took over Thanksgiving.
I was led into their habitat by one of the finest guides around. Even though my life was in danger I was able to get this shot of them without being spotted. Just look at those beady eyes. That is Jack on the left standing next to his baby girl (Jennie, the mom is in the background).

Craft Shows

I liked Mutation so much that I thought I would participate in some other craft fairs. One is this weekend at a church right down the road from where we live. Another is in Atlanta, GA at the begining of December. You can click on the title above to go to Ice-Atlanta's website. I will be busy getting ready with the new balloon shells and Christmas greeting cards. Sounds like holiday fun to me.

In the Studio.

This weekend I worked on some Balloon Shells and thought I would take the opportunity to share a little about the process through a couple of pictures. (Thanks to David for taking them) They give you a good idea how the studio is set up. What a mess! I installed a pully system so I can dip the balloons, hang them on the line and then rotate the line in preperation for the next one. There is a trough to catch the drips so they can easily be reconstituted back into slip.

I thought this one would be a good example of their size. Any questions? I will be glad to answer them.

Updated Website.

I have been working on improving and updating the website. I have added links to the blog and eventually... A Store. If I can ever figure out how something like that should work. The images are almost up to date. So you can find more ceramic work, more cards, and more fabric paintings. I am just missing a couple of geets. I need to go through and update the things that have been sold and the contact page. Wow, when I write it all down I see there is a lot to get done. Until then... you can click on the title, "Updated Website", and go see the new stuff.


The monster house. I was afraid no one noticed, but a couple of kiddies offered us kudos while taking some candy. We got a "way cool", "hey, your house looks like a monster house", and my favorite..."your house is SO pretty, I like it, it's like a square."
Yep, "a square", I think that says it all, and with that, I think we made our neighborhood a little bit better place to live this halloween.
