UCDA Conference in Phoenix, AZ

I returned last week from my second trip to Phoenix, AZ this month. The first time was to stand next to my dear friend, Angela as she united in spirit and law with her husband, George. That was a beautiful and wonderful traditional Greek wedding with a flare of modernity, but I am sickened to say, I don't have any of my own photos from any of it.

The second trip was to attend the annual University & College Designers Association conference. It was an amazing trip. Not only did I get to spend some more quality time with my newly wed friends, but I learned a lot of useful things during the conference, met awesome people who do what I do, and even had some extra time to lounge by a couple of the 8 pools at the conference designated resort. Needless to say, the trip as a whole proved to be a very well rounded experience, leaving me inspired and rejuvenated, just as I had hoped.

When I find more time, I'll write in greater detail about some of the things I took away from the conference and the trip as a whole. In the meantime, I'll let the photos do the talking.

Coil Pots

I made these low-fire clay coil pots a couple of years ago but I just recently took photographs of them on my new oak flooring, so I thought I'd add another post to the Ceramics category on the blog. I sure do miss the meditative process of making these...One day, I'll have that kiln I've been dreaming about in my shop and then I'll be claying-it-up until my heart is content.
