Yeesh — It’s been quite a while since I’ve posted. Yes — April, May, and June totally ZIPPED by. I was so non-stop busy with Art Events — Our Lake Minnetonka Studio Tour, the St. Croix Pottery Tour, etc/etc. Actually, I go through this busy/busy every year — So busy, so preoccupied, but totally wonderful!!
And this year, Husband was truly toooooo busy to photograph for me — Meetings, unexpected Meetings, more Meetings. I just went into Blog-Hiatus mode.
And now, it’s already July????
So, through it all — We’ve become Dog-People. Ever since last winter, when Husband’s Mom was recovering from a fall, we’ve had Riley-the-Dog. When it was time to return him after three months, we had become just a wee bit attached — We requested shared-custody.
Basically, Riley now resides back and forth, every two weeks. And of course, he now has his own collection of Pottery — When he’s with us, he enjoys all his meals and snacks in hand-made Pots and Bowls….

We keep this Bowl in the cupboard — He only gets one Treat at a time.

Riley LOVES Ice Cream:
Riley LOVES (Loves) Ice Cream. If Husband and I have a small bowl of Ice Cream in the evening — Riley loves to lick the Bowl (he’s so polite about it). Sometimes we just give him a spoonful in his own dish — Wow, he’s happy-Pup!!
Above — Riley’s current Ice Cream Bowls — Wood Fired Bowls made by Simon Levin, Alana Cuellar.

And that’s the overview of Riley’s Pottery Collection. Hope you enjoyed it — Now I need to get to my Studio and make a few more Pots! So HAPPY/HAPPY SUMMER, everyone!!
