#Repost @natgeo with @get_repost ・・・ Photo by Frans Lanting @franslanting | A lone bull elephant stands at the edge of a water hole, swaying his tail and rumbling as only elephants can do, while the sky turns blood red on a winter evening in Botswana. I share this image to mark World Elephant Day, a time to reflect on what elephants mean to us, what we’ve been doing to them, and what we can do for them. I’d like to draw attention to the organizations that have forged a strong coalition aimed at reversing the poaching crisis that has decimated elephant populations almost everywhere. The @ElephantCrisisFund was established by @SaveTheElephants in partnership with @LeonardoDiCaprioFdn and @WildNetOrg. They support the right people in the right places and they are making a real difference. Check them out and lend your support so they can do even better. And follow @FransLanting for more intimate encounters with elephants. @ThePhotoSociety #Elephants #Respect #Dignity #Conservation #Wonder

First Raku of 2010

The day dawned with a bright sun that we have been unused to seeing here in Atlanta the past few weeks.  The forecasters even promised that it would be relatively warm.   This seemed to be a good day for a raku party but it's unusual; normally we fire in lousy weather.  The kiln Gods and the sun were shining on us and we had a great firing with no breakage.  We even fired some test pieces with nice results.  Maybe we should start firing on nice days.
Here is a vase with Rick Berman's Turquoise glaze.  I'll be posting more images on my FB fan page.  Not a fan?  Go to Future Relics Fan Page and become one.
