Snowy holiday

The first three ducks of the year. Now they are all coated in methylcellulose and ready to be out in the world. But they're staying in for now; too cold and snowy!
The shoe has begun. I have lots of ideas for how to do this one differently from the last. Let's hope at least the sole comes out better. It's tricky when I space them years apart—easy to forget the mistakes and re-live them!
Today was a flurry of activity, trying to plan two shows and catch up on other old work. I didn't get the big app done (yet) but at least sketched out the idea of how to show the process of weaving something for my NYC show. A new interview about my work is online here—an Australian site!

Tomorrow, my students begin the adventure into making books. My car is loaded with samples and supplies and I'll be up bright and early tomorrow morning to gather more things before making the trip back to campus.
