|Practicing new goblet form|
January is the month for me to work on new forms. So goblets it is, and a new shape for bowls. How is it that a curve can be so elusive?! Drives me nuts! I see it perfectly in my minds eye, but cannot make my hands create that curve on a regular basis. Practice more~

This is my niece swimming backstroke at a college meet last weekend. She and her sister are the closest thing I have to children of my own. Honest to goodness, I do not know how you parents do it! My heart swells with so much love for these kids I feel like it will explode - and I am just the Aunt!!!
Anyway, it's such a treat to watch her swim. This time the meet was in Rochester, where my father lives. So my sister and I met up at his house and we three went to the swim meet together.
My other niece had her own high school swim meet (they crank swimmers out in N.J.). She and her father stayed home to attend that. I keep trying to convince my other niece to attend college in the Capital District...but, alas, I think I will lose that one... her father's Alma mater beckons!! Regardless we have two years before that happens.
|Dad and Sister. Love them too!!|
