I always pick a few and look at them over and over again before I walk away or toss them aside.
How do you reproduce something that nature does so well?
There are potters who have the ability do do such things and I always envied their ability to get the idea from their head to their hands and to the finished item.
Then you can hold and turn in your hands and look with wonder.
Gee, I wonder how they.....
I am back in the studio after a break in the work cycle with all the goings and comings and the show.
It was wonderful and I am ready for a bit of clay.
Yesterday their was something waiting for me at every turn.
Plates to trim, bowls to fix, jars to finish and tiles to carve.
Bisque to unload and earrings to finish.
Me thinks the elves were sleeping on the job.
Then again how can I complain when I get to wake up and walk across my yard to go to work?
And I get to look at this.....
There is plenty there I just need to look.
