There will be no updates this week due to the holidays and familial visitors.  Instead, enjoy the gingerbread village my wife and daughter made.

Wishing in one hand...

Looks like I went over my self-imposed weekly posting rule again.  I didn't even realize it.  I've been going full steam on one piece trying to meet a deadline at the end of this week, and it's still not finished.  Two days of seasonal baking didn't help my workload, but it was nice to have treats to share.  Spent some time on Saturday hearing tales of Dean's Nepalese adventures.  And Aimee graciously braved the snow storm to join us for a round of Oellers' punch.

I realized today that there is such an enormous backlog of partially finished work in my studio that I'm going to have to make a punch-list and timeline to get this stuff wrapped up before the Spring semester begins.  Until next time, enjoy the overly-tweeked photo of the current work in progress.

Drill, baby, drill!

When I woke up I said, "I think I'll make today a lazy day...because it'll probably be the last one I have for about 7 months."  So far, this morning has yielded nothing but one technological innovation after another.  Take a look above.  I know...the image is a little dark.  Just think of it as one of those satellite spy photos.  Any idea what's occurring there?  Go on...take a guess.  Still no clue?  Sorry, but I'm not going to tell you.  You'll just have to take my joomchi workshop at CMA in June, where all tricks and discoveries will be revealed.  For now it remains the studio equivalent of a "state secret".  I wonder what else 2014 will bring?  Maybe something awesome (wink).

And here's a juicy little detail from a piece currently in the works.  Should be done within the week.  Should.

Odds & Ends

Went a little long between updates....not that there's much to update this time.  As usual, I have a dozen pieces going simultaneously.  The deadline for a show I was planning to enter has been extended, meaning I will definitely get that piece done in time.  There is a course proposal due soon, so that needs to be wrapped up.  Otherwise, there's nothing new this here are some odds and ends from documentation day.
