Sorry I haven't updated...

...but we had an unexpected visitor drop in on us a couple weeks ago.

My daughter, Madeleine Calliope Manuel, was born March 22nd at 4:59pm. She was 5 weeks early, but she's doing just fine. I'm already daydreaming about the day I get to let her play in mud for the first time. Should I start her off with play-doh, or just let her dive head first into porcelain?

On the ceramics front, I am taking a hiatus from the studio while I'm maternity leave, but plan to get back to work in a few more weeks.

Clayfest, the group show at University of Indianapolis, had it's reception on Monday, April 4th. My three doll jars were in it:D If you're in Indy, you can stop by the Christel DeHaan building on the U of I campus and see them. The show is up through the end of the month, I believe.

Also, I got news that my peep sculpture won a prize at the Skutt Peep Show at NCECA. I have no idea what it placed yet, but YAY! I won something!

Finally, the show catalog for Cafecito is up on their website. There is a fantastic selection of cups for sale, and I feel really honored to have been included in the show (you can see mine on page 3, if you've forgotten what it looks like. It's the Josie cat cup.)

That's all the exciting news I've got for right now...
