I got my first ever blog comments. (Thanks, Toby and Beth!) This is bizarre and exciting.
Also, I’m about to embark on the big commission I confirmed in January. God, this is something. And also vulnerable. But what I’ve been thinking about is: Why do I feel so much more vulnerable and shy putting the written word online, than I do in putting what is really a very close representation of my core self, out in the world, permanently, in clay? Why is one un-nerving and the other exhilarating?
Also, I picked up this little wheel yesterday. Super excited about this. This summer will be the season of garage set-up, complete with kiln, wheel, and pug mill. Though I will have to wait to get power and gas. But, heck, yeah! It’s like arranging furniture. Good times!
Also, blessings to NewtonFreecycle, I picked up this corrugated tin a few weeks ago, so that someday I can build my kiln shed in the back yard. Let’s all keep track of how long that will take! But it’s here, just waiting for me.
