Cradle of Filth for tunes o' the day. STOP! This is black metal! And although this is one of their more tame videos, it is not for everyone, esp. my mom and dad. Or their friends. The rest of us, well, it is perhaps an (amusing? entertaining? odd? scary?) introduction to black metal. Well, you see, it is Halloween week.
We have been fiddling with the Spirit and Kitsch Day of the Dead show, which promises to be a good show and a good party on Oct. 31. Janet's skull paintings below are especially exciting. It is a show that cries out for excess.

I like this tune a great deal BUT it is one of those that is definately NOT for everyone, such as my parents or any oftheir friends. They would not like it at all: it is power metal and anarchy and cheap horror mixed up together. Sounds so good.

Putting the animal on the side is turning into a good idea.
In other news, who is this Deborah with the advice, introduce yourself, glad to have you visit!
And for myself, I am hanging a Day of the Dead show all day and will try to get pictures. It would appear that you simply keep adding skulls and skeletons, then you add more...and more, and streamers...

Probably these are the most beautiful goblets anybody has ever made. Nearly finished below, next week you will see the extra touches the customer (CELESTE AGAIN) chose.
I only show making the top half in the video, but extremely interesting viewing, I think. I don't show finishing/assembling because potters out there will want to steal my secrets .

These look good in person, even if the photo is terrible. I need to undo the studio, close up the show room and get it working again, along with a good spot to take pics.
I have entered a petite craft fair Dec. 1, here in the community center /PO (picture below, down a few!). It is likely to be quite small and ........well, it is close to home and amongst my neighbors, so how can I lose?
Ha! No presidential ads in my head last night.

I was glazing this am, then out in the rain and what not, therefore feeling hard working and virtuous so far today, when I decided to look at the stats. Basically, I was wondering if the google bots from Salt Lake City were checking me out (re: Mormon pres. candidates) and I couldn't see any. BUT, I did see visitors who spent time here today from Australia, Austria, Israel, and repeat visits from the Canadian, Irish and Middletown crowd among others. Bless you, Kate and Jim, esp, for coming back and forth to see what people are up to here.
Let me explain the intent of this blog, because people have observed I don't write much. I have little to say. I am a reclusive flake (perhaps charming at times) and sit around making things with my pets. This blog is updated frequently because it is fun. The pets are cute and phot-worthy, the pots are cute and photo-worthy, that is all this blog is about.

Fantastic weather, millions of visitors including 4 because of this blog (specifics Monday) and lesson #1 of studio tours: people buy pottery when you play James Brown. Yep, they do.
