Howdy all...

Wow! It has been forever since I have posted on here. Not that I haven't wanted to, but technology is the devil, especially when it is not working properly. Internet service at my house is notoriously unreliable. Of course the fact that we are really just filtching wireless internet from my in-laws 100 yards away may have something to do with it. I cannot, though, take any credit for the storm that put many without electric for days on end. Being that we live in southern Illinois, we were hit by the inland hurricane or mega cyclone or whatever the hell you want to call it. And while, thankfully, there was little damage to our house, it did mess up all kinds of stuff around here and southeast Missouri. Needless to say, blogging was not on the top of my priority list for a while. Anyway, the stupid internet appears to be working right now so I thought I would pop in and let everyone know I was still around; and that there will be more posts regarding a number of things in the near future. Now for those of you (like myself) who like posts with pictures in them...

Lidded jar, 4.5 or so tall & wide, cone 10 reduction stoneware

This is a jar I made a number of years ago when I was still in school. One of my absolute favorites. It just recently found a new home after a sale over mother's day weekend.


  1. Hi Rob, what a beautiful pot, I would have had a hard time giving that up if I were you. We had an electrical storm here not too long ago and it zapped out my modem (I'm on slow dial up) - so once I found out what was wrong I had to get a new modem, thankfully we didn't have any fallen trees or anything, other years we have but we lucked out this time. Hope you didn't have too much damage from your storm.
