I had some trimming to do last week but the trimming scraps kept flying around the studio. I'd already vacuumed so I set up this large piece of cardboard to catch the trimming scraps and keep them in the splash pan.
It's hard to take a video of something that is essentially blocked from view. Also someone filled up my camera card with tons of pictures of a motorcycle.

I tested out some more bike parts for the base of one of my sculptures. Looks a little busy, eh?

Speaking of busy, these guys are meant to be end caps for some of the bike part sculptures. I finished them Friday and they are in the kiln today. The surfaces are bunches of sprigs.

Yakima got a new piece of art downtown by Jimmy John's. I like it.
