Let there be light

Any time I’m teaching ,  especially if I’m teaching children, I always ask a trick question.  And I tell them that it’s a trick question.  I’ll hold up a magic marker and say, “can you all see this?”  Of course they will nod or say “yes”.  And I’ll say, “no you can’t see this.  You can see the light bouncing off of this, but visually,  you are not able to go to this object.  The light has to come to you.”

And I can prove it.  If we come back here at midnight, and turn off all the lights and I say, “Can you see this?”  You can’t even see me.  No light no sight.

The bible says that the first words God ever spoke were, ” Let there be light.” And it was good.

This week in the studio

This is a back splash that I’m working on for a house in Sewanee, TN and this is a view down the valley. I’ll post pictures as this progresses.

This is a wedding gift for a couple in Hawaii. She is a marine biologist, so the client asked that the glaze represent the ocean.
I love this sort of work. The client came in and said we have a $500. budget. What can we do?


The is the outside of the bowls. I really like how the glaze curtained down and give the impression of waves coming up on the beach.
