Notice the wonderful storage olla sitting next to the fireplace. Notice the huge cast iron comal. Notice the wonderful clothing in lovely cotton patterns and the comfy shoes. Notice the jewelry, was this everyday adornment or staged for the camera?

Every year we set up at the Tucson Mineral & Fossil Show at the Ramada Limited. The motel location is at the northwest corner of St. Mary's and the freeway. We are always in room 147. Stop by and say hello! We set up at the show on January 24th.........will probably only stay through February 7th.............I'll keep you posted.

Next up is this Salado piece that has a wonderful medallion design.
Sadly this wonderful bowl has approximately 50% plaster. But just look at that wonderful Butterfly! It is on the restoration table and is undergoing painting. I believe this one will be up for sale when finished. Dan has had it in our personal collection in this state for years and is excited to see it finished. Those that know him realize that when complete he may not part with it!
Update: 01/21/17 - Finished!
Restoration notes: In the end the total amount of work done to this piece, would it have been for a client, would have cost $625.
