Great Trip to the Eye Doc!

My recent trip to the eye doctor was a lot more exciting than I imagined it would be. Reading San Francisco magazine in the waiting room, I discovered my pieces in a beautiful photo spread of Julie Dowling's fabulous house in Sonoma, yeah! -Erin

Shape Hunting at The Hirshorn

On a recent trip to Washington DC, I went hunting for cool shapes at the Hirshorn museum to inspire my own sculptures . The outdoor sculpture garden in front of the museum is a beautiful calming spot with great Henry Moore sculptures.

The building, reminiscent of a slide carousal is full of wonderful mid-century art. Here are a couple of my favorite shapes.

Happy hunting! -Erin

Firing Day!

One of the funnest parts of the entire clay making process is firing day! Yesterday was a clear and perfect day for it and this picture shows Eartha, our gas kiln at full blast.
Today is the day of waiting and then tomorrow I get to peak in and see which pieces made it throught the fire and which pieces came alive in the flames. -Erin
