the bowls are beckoning.
These days I have the pleasure of traversing from office to studio by about ten steps. I usually bounce back and forth between the office/design work and my ceramic work. I did not make it into the studio at all today. I have a table full of vases that I cast last week, wrapped in plastic, waiting for me to paint them. Then there are the bowls, all painted, waiting for me to etch away at them and the cups waiting to be glazed. Instead I went back at the “sprout” drawings and ended up with not a sprout but a dandelion. Actually I did get a sprout in there. A very sophisticated sprout not crooked and awkward like a sprout should be. I went for a run and was so sidetracked looking for sprout inspiration that I kept stopping and then would get distracted by, oh look at those pretty cows, their eyes are so beautiful, the cows actually trotted along side of me for a while, thought that was pretty cool and oh my there is a whole bunch of Japanese anemones growing back there, and look a humming bird, a chipmunk and turtle all in the road at the same time. Yikes! Then there is this blog. All the things I want to write about and all the great responses I have been getting. Needless to say I wasn’t very focused today but I sure did have a lot of fun looking for sprouts and hearing from all you folks. Thanks!
