Our life revolves around clay. We probably have a large percentage of clay in our cells by now. The rhythm of making shifts the seasons just enough to where we can claim it’s ours, even though it really claims us. It’s true. We are one with our clay.
We are surrounded by trees, frogs, snakes, leaves, apple orchards, the sounds of waves from nearby Green Bay, turkey buzzards, deer, turkeys, coyotes, sinking into the ground outhouses from the past and the wireless satellite towering in our orchard.
And in our studio, we can sink into the clay as our hands begin to find their words.
I just received this today and all I can say is it’s nice to be noticed!! Thanks to my fellow blogger Elizabeth Rose of Elizabeth Rose Mysteries.
It is these twin awards:
Fantabulous and Awesome Blossom Awards
which are straight from the heart and mind of Bally Bin, author of
The Good, Bad and Ludicrous
And I got the award from Elizabeth Rose of elizabethrosemysteries
I’m quoting from Elizabeth Rose now “This is the exact text that came with these awards, and I’m keeping it intact because it is perfect: Awards are nice – they are the equivalent of Girl’s Night Out or a Night with the Guys where you compliment each other, share juicy tidbits about yourself and then inform the group of what amazing find you came across last week.
However, for a variety of reasons there are those who choose not to accept or pass on awards. For those who like the idea of having an award or two on their site, but aren’t up to the work involved or feel like they’ll somehow betray those they follow by narrowing a list down to just 10 – here’s two awards you are welcome to put on your site if I’ve followed you, Liked one of your posts or left a comment that included the link to this page.
You are also free to bestow these no-strings attached Awards to others as you see fit – these images are free to use as long as you and others don’t pretend they are your own. If you wish to link back here, Fantabulous – but not required.”
Thanks so much, Elizabeth Rose, for sharing this wonderful gift.

These two galleries are as far apart as they can be. One is all American Folk Art including paintings, carvings and antiques. One is Asian antiques and contemporary Asian art. Yet, they bring to us the past and the present which suggests the future. They are the perfect compliment to the fine artists and schools of Ellison Bay and Ellison Bay Arts.
