We had a wonderful family birthday party for Sue. CJ made the very tall cake and it is delicious, we froze most of it, we’ll be having birthday cake into the summer now.
We needed that cake when we moved two tons of clay into the studio.
They are replacing the bridge that crosses the Au Sable in Wilmington. There is a barge in the icy river with heavy equipment and there are giant cranes, lots of noise and hardworking people about……wonderful to watch.
Sue is doing a mural in conjunction with a Tibetan Festival that will occur in Plattsburgh. She’s been asked to create a Mandela tile mural on the side of a Thai Restaurant downtown. This is just a paste up to show what it will look like. Sue will having a series of Tile Workshops for the community to participate in and make the tiles to her design, more to come.
The picture on the right are some of the press molds Sue has made for this project.

One day I was on Google Earth and I was at the Petra Caves in Jordan when Sue walked by my computer and I happen to have this image up on my screen.
Sue loved the color and appearance of the layers of stone. So she created the pot you see below.
