I just have to say, I am humbled by this simple and straightforward approach to clay work. Not holy, hey folks, it's just clay.
Plus this woman was funded by one of my favorite organizations, Kiva.

Henderson Police say 25-year-old Joshua Salayich is facing several charges including, DUI with death, leaving the scene of an accident and resisting an officer. Police say Salayich hit and killed a 33-year-old Jeremy Kunz from Utah.
Kunz was among 2,400 runners in the Ragnar Relay Las Vegas Race. He was struck by Salayich and killed early Saturday morning, relay officials confirmed in a statement released Sunday.
The accident occurred at the intersection of Stephanie and Horizon Ridge Parkway in Henderson. Police and rescue vehicles responded immediately. Ragnar Relay co-founder Dan Hill said, "Our deepest sympathy goes out to the runner's family."
"We appreciate the rapid response from Las Vegas authorities and ask that all our runners keep the family in their thoughts and prayers," said Hill.
Amy Brewster was part of a team also participating in the race. "We were all just having a good time and then you hear this and the first thing is the shock and horror," she said.
According to authorities, Kunz was standing on the side of the road early Saturday when Salayich alleged hit and killed him before overturning his vehicle. "Once the car came to rest, the driver fled the scene. Luckily police were able to catch him about a half a mile from the scene of the accident," said Keith Paul with Henderson Police Department.
News of Kunz's death spread quickly for runners across the area, including local running shops. Like others, they're left stunned and offer advice to other runners. "Make sure that you wear a light, preferably a red or yellow flashing light, and be very aware," said John Griffin with Village Runner.
Police say alcohol wasn't the only factor in this accident. They say the driver was also speeding, but it's still unclear just how fast he was going.
On another note, we DID have that huge storm, no power at my house all day until the evening on Tuesday! I'll leave the sad gutter story alone for now. :(
And I DID finish the weaving with the 20/2 yarn! I'm still working on my book, I am reading "The Remains of the Day" another great book by Kazuo Ishiguro

This guy was not a favorite but upon completion I think he looks very sweet in a r2d2 kind of way. If I named my pots or "vessels" (does that sound snooty?) this one would be r2d2. Maybe it would hold holy water for babies under the age of 2.

If I'm going to participate in the Pedro Point Firehouse sale; Madrigalli Market then I'll be selling these shaving mugs I guess. Just waiting to hear if there was room for me. I opted for just one day, my stock of pottery is not huge right now. I'm planning to make some more shaving mugs and tiles for my boxes. I'm having trouble finding the time!

Devils Slide eventually will be bypassed when the tunnel is complete. This is the road I take to south to go to Princeton, Montara or Half Moon Bay.
THE SHOOTING:So glad to be taking time away from classes or I'd have been there for the lock-down while conducting open studio.
The parking situation is tense. There is construction going on and even less parking than usual and it is never good, always tense and cut-throat. The parking lot has been a dangerous place, speeders, parking spot hogs, tempers flaring. Someone was shot in the behind (the maximus gluteous behind) and the shooter got away. I understand there was some kind of manhunt going on but he escaped. Gee, hope he didn't run over the hill eastward or he'd be right at the San Francisco County Jail, or maybe I do hope he ran that way. Maybe it was a she but I doubt it.
Once again, they didn't listen to me. I did my fair share of whining every day telling everyone that the parking was brutal and dangerous. See what happens.... This was probably not about parking but it could be, huh?
Last week a student at San Mateo High School went out of control too. What is happening I wonder?

It's vintage, can I sell it on E Bay??? Out it goes, last week my garbage can weighed a LOT, I put many bags of dried out clay into it as well as lots of other stuff like this E Bay vintage lot.My girly basket from JoAnn, I think I can rinse my tools off and it will drain!
A girl needs some music, it looks funny I know. I'm going to see if I can find a decent station and just push the off or on button thru the paper. I have trashed 3 radios so far, this one is four. I saw a nice one with an ipod deck - there would go my ipod probably...
