CopprClay batch, drill press & engraver[/caption] The festival is in full swing and the weather couldn't be more perfect.  There were great crowds today, lots of friends stopped in to see my new work & say hello.  I finished quite a few new pearl vessels, large and small.  I set a handful of "petal" pearls and they turned out fabulous!  They are petite and perfect to wear casually or not.  I also had a new batch of Copprclay come out of the kiln to make more earrings.  In the photo you can see my drill press to make consistent holes in the dried clay and an engraver to sign my pieces in the leather hard state.

I will be gearing up for another one day festival next Sunday, in Littleton on the campus of the Arapahoe Community College campus.  There is an admission charge,  you can print out a coupon for $1.00 off the admission of $5.00.  Or stop by my booth, I have a few flyers with a coupon attached.  The proceeds benefit the scholarship fund.  And at this show, all merchandise will be priced under $100.00.

Lastly, my week was full of emotions, as we took our youngest son to college.  It was a happy sad moment and we look forward to many new adventures ahead.
