Right after I unloaded the kiln and took back-dropped photos of the two pieces, we were off for a week at the P.S. House (passive solar.) I had been rushing around trying to pack, take photos of completed work, wrap up drying work, ship work, get the Jeep tuned-up, etc. I was tired, anxious and wanting to finish up some pieces left mid-way. It would have to wait. Besides, I thought, some time out of my tiny studio would give me a little perspective.

My studio at its best and worst---messy. The above photo was taken just before I loaded Menagerie in the kiln for its last firing. There is another piece, Cairn, already in the kiln.
