Things I've Been Doing

So, what have I been up to, you ask? Here's a sampling of the things that have happened in the last week or so.
Shoveled my way out of a minor blizzard. Predawn shoveling is my favorite workout!
And then hanging out in the springy sunshine with the dog. It's just the Midwest, yo - that's how we roll!
Of course with weather like that, sometimes it's best to just stay in your basement and make pots.  So I've tried to do some of that lately. Some days are better than others. But that's the way it is.

Itty-bitty bowls! I'm thinking these will be known as "adora-bowls." Say it out loud if you don't get it.
Some more regularly sized bowls.
And more bowls.

And back into the groove with some mountain bowls.
So that's what's going on. I actually have a couple of events coming up this spring, so one of these days I need to start thinking about doing some firings. More information about those shows can be found over at my recently updated About the Artist page.

So there you have it. Oh, music? This week in the studio I've been listening to NPR Music's (mostly) downloadable suggested listening mix from SXSW 2012. It's nothing if not eclectic (folk, metal, hip-hop, alternative, latin, rock - and that's just in the first track! j/k) and chock full of artists I've never heard before. While lists like this (70 songs deep, eclectic) come with plenty of songs that I listen to once and decide that's enough, there are certainly some gems in the mix as well. So check that out if you like, and let me know if you find anything good in there!
