Gary Jackson: Fire When Ready Pottery
A Chicago potter’s somewhat slanted view of clay & play

Here’s a quick peek of the Christmas gift I bought myself a couple weeks back.
I’ve been following Matt Wilson of Airtight Artwork on Instagram for awhile now.
Completely enamored by his ability to create precise bird sculptures out of everyday silverware!!!
Each bird has it’s own personality & attitude. And when his last “flock” was released on Etsy,
I just had to go for it… Merry Christmas to ME!!!

While most people would use it as a spoon rest…
looks like this bearded dragon prefers it as a BED?!!!

So good to know that my pottery is so multi-functional. Ha!!!
Thanks for sharing Chrissy-Chick!

Thanks to everyone who offered up some adorable names for my niece Taylor’s new puppy. And after my “lobbying” for the obvious choice… OREO… she decided to go with one of her original three names… RILEY.

Still cute nonetheless!

It was a wonderfully windy Century bike ride yesterday… The Udder Century…
with more than half of it straight into the wind or gusty side winds!!!
But nearing the end of our 100 miles, we ran across this farm with friendly folks
wanting to play! I’ve often said “The best part of biking is stopping.”
I’m always ready to check out a new adventure along the route!
