Time out from work and teaching-One of the highlights of my summer was watching my husband ride the "300 Warriors" bike race. Michelle, David and I were the sag wagon for Dan and his friend Vaughn. It was so exciting to go from point to point and wait anxiously for them to arrive. This is the Tour of Utah race that professional racers from around the world participate in, the ride is brutal. Many people were overcome with exhaustion and had trouble finishing as the race was mostly uphill climbs. Here's a pic of Dan and I before the race at 5 something AM After the race we all had peanut butter sandwiches in a park and watched the pros go by accompanied by police escorts (Michelle had a hilarious Officer Dangle story, but it was even funnier because we were all hopped up on Rock Star juice).
Back to work now, Dan is working on an exciting development for us jewelry makers. He has been fine tuning an etching process that is faster, safer and more environmentally friendly than PCB solution (ferric chloride) for etching copper and brass. We will be teaching this class in Europe in November and then in the US. Examples are shown here of some finished bronze clay jewelry pieces textured with the plates.
