Laughing with the girls
It has been really quiet since school started and the lateness of summer has taken over.
You can feel it in the air and you can hear the sounds of summer gone as the kids go back to school and the air hangs with quiet.
It is not like Mark and I can not have a lively conversation it is just hard to do that and work at the same time.
We find that when we are working it takes all our brain cells to focus on the task at hand.
You know if you make pottery for a living and spend countless hours working that there are days you really need to get your self out and see people.
So yesterday I ran away for a few hours and had lunch with Tracey and Susan.
They did great post with great pictures.
It is funny how someone else can give an eye to something you look at everyday and make it look different.
Make it look good like I want to be there, hey I am there!
THen we went over to the NCPC to see the show.
And while they were snapping pictures of old pots I had to get some pictures of my neighbor Carol's work.
I must admit I am not always clear or what collector's collect and why they buy some of the things they do.
A pot really has to call to someone and there seems to be someone for every type of work out there. I think that is what makes this show interesting. As we walked through there were pots that we just did not gravitate to at all, others that caught us all and some that did something for one of us and not the others.
A diverse group of opinions, I like that.
Her work is full of interest without being over done and each piece has a story that goes with it that only adds to the work.
Meanwhile back at the ranch.
We are almost finished glazing, loading starts today.
I am thinking of all the folks hit by the storm and hope that life returns to normal for them all as soon as possible.
