Lotus Zen Fountain IN ACTION!

Before I packed up my Lotus Zen fountain to take to Troy-Hayner Cultural Center for the "Small Scultpures" exhibit, I just had to get some pictures of it with water! Oh, I'm in love! I used a wide plastic tube from the pump up to the "seed pod" and it makes the sweetest sounds of water bubbling up into the flower. I ran it for 2 hours to test, and it didn't splash! This is the best news!! Also, I love to take pictures of water in action. It's amazing. I love to see faces in the water. The Opening Reception for this exhibit is this Sunday, June 28th from 2-4 p.m. Then the exhibit will run through August. See http://www.troyhayner.org/exhibits.html for more information. Cheers!

Doggy Love...

I love my dogs so much! They follow me room to room in the house, and even stand right beside me as I'm outside taking photographs, or working in my studio. Here's an adorable picture of Buddy. He was standing in my pottery shots and I finally asked him to lay down. He did so right beside my new butterfly bowl! I wasn't even worried he would damage it.

Quee is our little black Lab, doesn't she look happy? She's a sweetheart who welcomed Buddy into our home a year and a half ago. She also taught him how to be a good guard dog!

Do you know the proof that God exists? He/She gave us dogs to love us unconditionally! What more proof do you need?

Pebble Pots!

Hello! My first grouping of pebble & coil pots are finished! I love how they turned out and I hope that you do also. I'm having so much fun making these, and even the glazing is fun because it's more like painting than glazing. Here they are...thanks for looking! Oh, guess I should mention that I've got them listed on Etsy and they're in the shop window of Brower's if you'd like to see them in person. Cheers!

Lotus Zen Fountain - FINISHED!!

I'm doing a happy dance!! I glaze fired my fountain last night, together with my pebble pots and it came out exactly as I had hoped! Yippeeee! Now I have to hook up the pump and then deliver it safely to Troy Hayner Cultural Center for the Sculptures Exhibit Opening Reception whichis on Sunday, June 27th from 2-4pm. It will be there until August. (sigh of relief)...

Hello! I'm glazing firing the "Lotus Zen" fountain and my "Pebble & Coil" pots tonight! I spent most of the weekend and last night glazing and now I can't wait to see how they turn out! I'll post pictures here when they're done. Keep your fingers crossed! Cheers! Diana
