Email, laundry, gathered plums, household tasks, got ready to vacuum but the email and TCP pulled me away from the task. You might guess that I am not getting back to carving right away! There are documents and correspondences to deal with post-show, some R&R too. I am still tired from the stresses. Getting into a carving would be grand, but I've left way too many things undone to get started right away. Oh, we waved farewell to our highschool freshman son as he departed for his first day of school. The day is young and more running around to be done, lessons for our son - chauffeuring tasks after school until the sun sets.

Hi Larry,


Now that our gallery show has ended, my wife dropped another bombshell - the local studio tour the end of September. So, having thought I was done with carving basket lids for a short while, not so fast. So here's what I did today - the beginning of a lid, in its' still wet state. When dry in about an hour, I'll fire it at 1650 F for two hours, it will be about an inch and a half in diameter, and fine silver. Then inlay it into a wooden lid (probably ebony, if the boss concurs).


Get well soon, Larry!

Hey Possum, here are a few of my latest - we're getting ready for a studio tour next week, and since all of our other work is in Seattle, we had to get to work making more baskets. No rest for the wicked, I guess.


I've been playing with hardwood inlays recently, so have two lids (dragonfly and frog) with colored wood inlays. The largest basket is 4 inches in diameter.

And lastly, a couple of bird skulls in moose antler, the one with the dark bill (raven) will be another basket lid - the Northwest Native American legend of raven stealing the sun. You can see a ziricote inlay of a raven feather (pyrographed as well) and a yellowheart sun inlay, in a tulipwood base.
