Coffee in the Atlanta skyline mug, "Where the Devil Don't Stay" by Drive By Truckers on the Apple tv. It's a random choice as Dave controls the music this morning, but it is so incredibly appropriate I can scarce believe it. I posted first this morning on Stranded in the South because this fine Snow Day (J's school and pretty much the rest of Atlanta is shut down this morning due to the snow that fell yesterday) so far is more about family than studio.
But studio looms as the snow and ice begin to melt. Yesterday I cut and prepped all the glass cylinders that the Waldorf 7th graders made and they are going to combine them into a really nice wall collage or mirror. As there was no school today, they will have to do it all tomorrow and it might be a bit rushed (I may even need to go and help), but there's no way the end result won't be spectacular.
The kilns will warm the studio as I fill and fire them all, and today and tomorrow I will ship the last two orders I have going out between now and mid-March when the BMAC orders start. I do have some pieces to get to Black Cat ArtWorks by Wednesday (hence some of today's kiln loads), but most of my work for the rest of the week will consist of a mask (as an example for the glass summer camp sessions I have donated to the Waldorf Auction--if you're at all interested, the online one is way cheap...), fusing the 7th grade project, and a final few pieces for the Dallas Hemispheres showroom. Then it's time to tackle the piles of paper again before they consume me.
Okay, off to face the snow!
