And here is Alain himself…entertaining a bemused group of Finns at my Paris show.
I’ve just emailed my website URL to a list of unsuspecting friends, family and aquaintances, causing my laptop to semi-crash and prompting an immediate response from my friend Alain complaining that the duck he bought isn’t featured…. So here it is…
It has been raining for days, months… This morning, it snowed up where I live: a white-out. We are almost in May and I can’t get to my kiln and my hands are freezing and inspiration has fled the coop. Um. Glum. Here’s a photo of my grand-daughters last summer.
Happy to say my sheep have gone to a good home
The show went brilliantly and am still on a complete high. Got lots of compliments, made lots of sales, some commissions, maybe other shows…oh it’s all tooo thrilling. Fame and fortune beckon?? I could have sold my horse and penguin many times over.
Looked at the guest list for the vernissage (opening night on 12 April) and decide I have nothing smart enough to wear. A panicked dash to the shops yielded a little greenish number. Hope I still like it on Thursday.
Right…I’ve selected pieces to take up to Paris, listed them, priced them and am now busy packing them up. This is the boring bit. Hope and pray ears and noses don’t fall off in transit.
Busy preparing new pieces for my Paris show on 12-14 April. Just loaded up the kiln and, in doing so, broke a toe off my new badger. Aargh, shouldn’t have rushed it. Will have to glue it back once fired.
