So after many days of sorting and organizing, scraping the floor, wiping clay dust off of everything I am finished with cleaning my pottery studio and have started to make pots!!!!!

Here are a few small pins I worked on today. You can find more at my Etsy shop: www.etsy.com/shop/NorthWorks

The fireflies in southern Wisconsin are so incredible to watch. Here is my first attempt at photographing them. I layered several images to achieve this photo. I wish I had more time to play with different settings, but the mosquitoes were eating me alive, so I had to call it a night. Next time I’ll have to try a larger number of shorter exposures. Argyle, Wisconsin.
