I generally try to get professional images after every firing to document the best new work.
Sometimes I don’t have time and need to take the work to a show before I can get it photographed.
The next best thing is having my collectors send me images of their new pieces in their homes.
I’m glad to know where this one is, because it was one of my favorites from the last firing and now I can go visit it.
Thanks Wes for the image and for your support and interest in my work.

We had a big day yesterday at Silvie Granatelli’s studio for @16.hands tour.
Thanks to all the folks who came out. It’s great to have people like Deb (pictured here with her new piece) who have been supporters for years and to meet new people who are just learning about my work.
We are open from noon to 5pm today. Come on out.
In addition to my work and Silvie’s, my favorite jeweler, Agnes Seebass is here showing her wonderful work.

16 hands ritual.
The morning of the tour I wake up early and put out all the signs leading to my mum’s house. I drive the same route every time and put the signs out in the same places every year. My route takes me through town and I always stop at @redroostercoffeeroaster to get a coffee. I look forward to it. This year my latte looked so good I had to take a picture of it!!!
If your coming to @16.hands your this year, I would fully suggest you stop at the Black Water Loft and get you one!
