As we punt 2013 as far down field as we can, lets not reminisce about the passing year's "best of" whatevers. Instead, lets look forward to a positive and productive new year from 2014.

I'm healing well from a recent surgery and looking forward to getting back into the studio and making lots of new work. I am also eager to jump into my new position as Ceramics Studio Coordinator at the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts. Since I have been stranded at home recuperating, I've been planning plotting and scheming about putting together workshops that cover an "everything but the kitchen sink" approach to surface design...think I'm right about there. I am even planning to make more sculptural objects in the very near know, so I can be asked "but what do I do with it"...I have missed that.

I would rather make plans... not resolutions.

Thank you for reading, following, looking and lurking. 
I hope you continue to do so.

Hello 2014.
Here I come.

Happy New Year.

(PS. interested in new music for the studio...recommendations for some good tunes ...see the comment section and feel free to post your own!)

I've enjoyed it in the past when you've compiled lists of good music from the previous year. I can always use the suggestions since I'm far too lazy to look for these things on my own. Maybe you could make a looking back exception for that.
