I have never seen so much "Sue Tirrell" in one place.  What a fine fun intensive batch of new works in her solo show at the Red Lodge Clay center.  Sue lives "in my hood" - just upriver in Paradise Valley.  The Red Lodge Clay Center is gem of a place sporting a world-wide footprint of top notch ceramists tucked into the small magical mountain town.  I am happy to report that after more than a decade of being a Sue Tirrell fan, I will finally get to have a small piece of her work all of which has an "Old World meets local storyteller" feel to it.  I was swayed by my usual tendency toward birds, bunnies and frogs by this compelling ethereal goat.  The date of my birthday in the year of 2015 launches the Year of the Goat (sheep) in the Chinese Zodiac.  Come visit me and you may enjoy a scrumptious snack from this little desert plate: White Goat Desert Plate by Sue Tirrell
