Ceramics and Earthquake do not mix.

The magnitude 5.4 earthquake in North Orange County we had today is a good reason why "earthquake putty" is a must for people who do ceramics or collect them. My home and gallery is less than 8 miles from the epicenter so we are very close to the shaking.

The only casualty of the quake was this finished raku piece which tipped over from its pedestal, fell and shattered. The other pieces in the gallery and a current work in my studio rode out the quake.

Oh no! Well at least there wasn't too much damage. Thankfully the quake wasn't too big.
