It seems that I return to making birds every 10 years or so - here's one of the new ones - a catbird.

Susan B Anthony, 2014, glazed porcelain, 4.5 inches high. I love having her in my woodshop. She doesn't put up with nonsense.

mary carlson glazes

While waiting for the new kiln I've been organizing glazes. This will make it so much easier to find what I'm looking for.

Sadly my kiln that I got on ebay for $300. is beyond repair.

Kiln loaded with new birds. I hope the kiln makes it. I bought it used and have repaired it numerous times. I think it's from the 1970's.

Listening to Proust - I didn't realize how often he speaks of flowers in "Remembrance of Things Past" - and working from the flowers that are just blooming. Heaven!
