I got my 5x8.5 Black Moleskine two days ago for the Sketchbook Project ( http://www.arthousecoop.com/projects/sketchbookproject ).

Eventhough I am pretty excited about the possibilities of this little book, I have only barely started to decorate the inside cover. There is something daunting about a blank book. Even more daunting is knowing the book won't go on my shelf when it's full but will go away and travel around and be thumbed through by what i imagine will be a lot of other people. People i don't know. People I will never meet. It is at once exhilarating and terrifying.

I am hoping to put some of the non-jewelry supplies i have been accumulating over the years to use in this project and i plan to spend tonight sifting through those things while i wait for my kiln to get up to temperature.

I would devote the night to just the sketchbook but it's Autumn finally and finally i can run my kiln without feeling like i am dying.

There is a small window between too hot to breathe and too cold to maintain dexterity and it is happening right now.

Potters for Pulse

My next post isn't SNAG related or even jewelry and metals related. However, it's too important to me not to share. I'm betting most of you will feel the same.In the wake of the tragic shooting at Orlando's Pulse nightclub a week and a half ago,…See More
