Happy New Year.

Thank you to everyone of you who came to see me at the Make It Show at the PNE. And welcome to everyone of you who signed up for my newsletter. The winner of the platter has been drawn – by random number generator – and an email sent.

Many people really like my stories about learning pottery techniques in Mexico. I’ll be adding a new adventure shortly about my recent trip to the Isle of Wight in the UK. As well as some of my creative adventures with the Norse runes.

This picture is a concept I am working on. It’s a runes necklace. Great looking, and also a means to store runes easily for a reading or casual use. These are fired using the same techniques as Mata Ortiz pottery – in this case on the winter solstice.

But for my next adventure – you might know of someone who might want to join me! I will be teaching a class specifically for teenagers (13-19) at Kensington Community Centre (36th and Knight). The Centre has found some funding to subsidize the youth class and the pottery club is paying for materials, so it is extremely affordable. Only $35!!! There is a limit of only 8 youths for this go round. So register right away if you are interested.

I hope everyone is having delightful mid-winter celebrations… whatever it is that you celebrate. I enjoyed my solstice immensely!
