So I am sitting here taking a break from moving the crate contents down to the house (and where we pack the rig). Thankfully the tractor has a trailer and I schlep the items in that.
But as I sit there and contemplate the trek tomorrow towards Eugene and Black Sheep Gathering I realize that...
...except for a 18 1/2 mile stretch between the San Diego Convention Center and the boarder crossing at Tijuana, I will be traveling the length of California in the first half of the year. I've spent so much time on I5 that I feel like a Freeway Resident. Thankfully I'm not sleeping on or under it.
The pictures are of a new/old project. While these are fresh out of the kiln and have a LickinFlames spin on them, the product is actually a throwback to some 35 years ago, when High Prairie Pottery (our mother company) was located in Blackfoot, Idaho. These will all be at Black Sheep...and cousins of these will be on the website store later in July.
Also new for us is the newsletter signup on our Contact Page. The newsletter will have some pretty exciting news popping up sometime in August...it involves both a BLOG and a magazine.
Lickinflames is known for making special yarn bowls, shawl pins and closures along with a line of mugs, plates and wall decor. Lickinflames is proud of it's 45 year history of making pottery using raku, obvara and feather decorations. The beautiful patterns created by saggar firing, especially tin foil saggar simply fascinating. All the work is handmade using stoneware clay.
