No matter what the work you are doing, be always ready to drop it. And plan it, so as to be able to leave it.
It's the last day of September already. Around here it was a very hectic month. Every day something popped up and changed all our plans. Things that kept me from the studio. Long hours waiting, away from my clay.
I covered up the porcelain cups I had thrown earlier in the month, all waiting for handles. For some it is too late---they will remain without handles---but not without hope. Porcelain takes care and a bit of patience. It makes you slow down and take note. It changes the rhythm, the timing of the studio. It is nearly as palpable as the season's changing light. Autumn is here now. It did not wait for me to catch up with summer's bright plans. I try to keep to a schedule, but the planet has its own to keep.
