Creeker

So now I've made it to cub creek foundation ( www.cubcreek.org) Which means I will be spending a year living in Appomattox making things... I will be concentrating on clay works mostly, but of course, I can't to one thing for too long before I remember all the other things I know how to make and there will be many many fiber projects spilling out of my studio as well as ceramics. I'm looking forward to what this year will bring me, and am trying very hard not to look to hard into the future, as that always leads to craziness and frustration. The moment I'm in and the week ahead at the most, that's all I am trying to think about. It is harder than I thought it would be. Thanks to my darlings who help pull me back down from the crazy shelf I often find myself on.

But here's a work that's almost finished...

Whoa! Cool. How does one make clay do that?!

first you start with a pile o' clay, and ask it to please please not crack because you're about to coil it up and stack it and smooth it and make it into something awesome. creative juices flow, the piece is built. then you pray to the kiln gods that it doesn't explode to bits when you fire it. oh. and live in a tent.
