Well Hello Blog World

I think I have finally figured out how to blog!  It only took 3 years.  Oh well, you know what they say… “Better late than never.”?

I love spring.  I feel so re-activated.  My mind is spinning with all the ideas I have.  My workshop is my favorite place to be these early spring days.  I am busy throwing work for an upcoming show the first weekend in June in Iowa City.  I didn’t make it to this show last year because I was traveling and so am excited to return.  Its usually close to my best show all year.

Here is a link to the show: http://www.summerofthearts.org/festival-menu/arts-festival/about.aspx

I love using nature themed motifs in my work.  I am really liking the feather.  Also have been using moths, beetles, groundhogs, bunnies, ferns, owls and trees.  Am thinking about adding hedgehogs, goats and woodpeckers.

Here’s how the feather motif is rendered on a bowl: EmilyKiewel-Clay1 copy

 

OK.  Time to head out to the workshop.  Later.
