thanks for all your interest and emails about the kiln. it has been sold. as i told many of you, i will keep you posted when i find another one. if you are in the atlanta area, wonderroot is a great place to fire your work if you don't have a kiln of your own. it is a great organization with lots of events and resources, and membership is $10/month or $60/year! can't beat it with a stick!
the free thrift store went well back in august. i haven't done another event since i've been back in atlanta, but i plan to get started with some more projects like that this spring. until then, i am creating some dolls from recycled materials, and some handbags as well.
i started an etsy store for sustain, and 100% of the profit will be used to help the families and individuals that i had in mind when i started the organization.
