Working on a new kaleidoscope piece with Jojo. She’s been developing this lotus form that I think resonates with the sacred art idea behind these designs.

The big platter lived. 24 inches wide! It came out of the firing near perfect. I’m always concerned with large pieces. They are subject to more stress and generally have a higher failure rate. This is also a great first attempt at doing symmetrical kaleidoscopic designs. Very encouraging. #kaleidoscope#neriage#coloredclay#kauaiart

This is our first look at our new design. We call this one “Rainbow Fish”. Several weeks of work went into this so I’m always excited to see a new design unveiled. #kauai#neriage#coloredclay
