Hush now and just do it
If we want to get the results we are after we have to put some time in.
I keep thinking about a different way to do these layers of glaze but then i keep coming back to the buts..
But- if I do that then I don't get the background color I want
But I don't want to do just slips and a clear glaze.
But I don't want to do multiple firings.
But if you would be quiet we could just get this done.
BUT, BUT, But......
I was using thrown vases back then rather than tiles and pillow vases and hand built vases.
And I was trying to wax with hot wax... oh, now talk about making yourself crazy.....
The designs were much tighter and some worked and some did not.
I would put tons of work in them to have people ask- will you take 20 bucks for it....
I finally set that part of my brain away and just made pots.
My mind wandered back to things I wanted to do but never took the time to do.
So I keep telling myself this is something you want to do.
So get with it and when it is done you will be happy for the time being until that part of your brain says, Yea, but what if we do....
I am picking berries like a crazed women.
So I am out early to get some more.
Time- just rolls off the tongue...time....what's that!?
