My first sculptural clay piece with wheel-thrown base, fired in my first pit-firing, emerged in tact, with 24k gold leaf addition---in the beginning I was willing to take risks to learn and to discover!
After all the activity of getting things done for the exhibit, there is a lull as if I hadn't planned for the moment after I finally dropped everything off at the gallery. I had planned. I kept saying to myself when this is done I will garden, I will go get my hair cut, I will finally pick out clay paint colors for the house, I will read a novel all day long, I will dust, I will, I will, I will. So what did I do, standing in the middle of an empty studio? I tied back my hair. I rolled out some coils. And started all over again.
