It's a Wrap

Ahhhh... sitting with my feet up just basking in the feeling of having a big event behind me.

Yesterday was the last day of our annual Bluff Country Studio Art Tour.  While the event is just one weekend, we've managed to make it into a multi-week event here at the studio.  You know how it gets - it starts out a simple thing and then you gradually keep making it more and more and before you know it... it's taking up several weeks of your life.  But I love it!!  It's the kick off to our summer sale season so worth starting out big, right?

The weekend before the tour, we fired to wood kiln so it could be opened during the tour with a kiln opening and pizza party.  It's always fun to be able to share the pleasure of opening a kiln and the surprise and wonder discovering what is found inside.  




So, on Saturday evening, with the help of a great group of friends, we unloaded the kiln fired the previous weekend and it was fabulous to see the results.  The firing was longer than usual and the results were wonderful.  The occasional peek inside while it was cooling did not do this load justice.  


 
Here are some photos of a few of my favorites.













Ok - no more time for basking.  It's time to get back to work again.  Be well.  Have a great week.
