to a commune in Chapel Hill, NC....one of the coolest roosts around.Thanks to the Uyesato acquisition committee for
adding even more love to their eclectic brood.

Update on the "Family Patriarch"..
I had created him in 2015, but his glaze job just did'nt pop.
He got a Father's day makeover in 2016 that he loves.
Cindy & Tom Lundy also loved him and they
added him to their collection. Happy Birthday, Cindy!
Thank you both for over 20 years of support!
"Bonnie & Clyde" are available in my home studio.
Juno is a very handsome boy . I created him summer 2016 in celebration of NASA's spacecraft reaching Jupiter's orbit. He is glazed in a cosmic, cobalt blue woodash glaze. Great red comb and wattles compliment his adventurous smile! I just saw some great photos/ videos posted on the spacecraft Juno's 6th orbit around Jupiter May 19, 2017. He is a pleasure to live with!
For 2018, New Merch is now available thru Hickory Museum of Art Galleria and "The Galleries" in Concord, NC thru the Cabarrus County Arts Council. Thanks to all who work in the shops for their help. I now have journals, puzzles, magnet sets, and notecards with images of the "children"! The large journal is not ruled so it can also be a sketchbook. I am creating more fun items with all of these photos I have taken over
the last 14 years of creating fowl.
