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.
Hanna, congrats on the commission! Looks like your studio is coming together. I’m totally jealous!!
You’re welcome 🙂 Another nice post. Interesting thing about comments on blogs, and blogs in general . . . I searched out a blog the other day that I don’t remember ever reading, but I read the blog that the writer did previously (confused?). Anyway, I was reading an old post and the comments and saw a comment made by “Beth”. I thought, hmm interesting, but it didn’t sound like what I would say. Then I clicked on it and . . . it was me. It was a number of years ago. Interesting!
Exciting things happening in your kiln/studio building! Congrats on the commission!
Hanna, I’ve enjoyed perusing around your website/blog. You are constantly seeking what will come next in your life, be it something wonderful or a much needed hiatus. I look forward to your next post.
