A Kiss for Earth and Clay


                                                          
Today's mission:  to make slab plates while the kiln cools down. 
My pussy willow branches sprouted leaves!
There are roots, too!
So I had to celebrate and play around with some simple designs.
 

Let the beauty of what you love be what you do. There are a thousand ways to kneel and kiss the earth.

  1. Kiss the earth - love that! And 'yay' for rooting your pussy willow.
    Happy Earth Day . . .

    1. The rooting was unexpected. I had only filled the vase with about an inch of water. It only took that little bit of water and some morning sun. Just a bit of care...Happy Earth Day....don't forget to take off your shoes and touch the bare ground...

  2. I love your design on the dish. Larger design looks lovely, too. Is is the space which makes a difference.

    1. Oh yes, it is so true, that space can make a difference in a design. It can add balance or vastness or airiness, many different feelings. thank you, Midori....

  3. I like the idea of a mission each day, there are so many distractions which can get in the way of creative work. Your dish is lovely..it's not easy to keep a design so pure and simple. Hope the firing has been a success too. :)

    1. Planning is the key when a studio is as small as mine. Plus a mission keeps me focused and it's fun. Thanks, Mark...the firing was a success...:)
