Preparation is an important building block of the creation process and impacts the success (or failure) of what gets made. I spent this past week in the studio playing with this building block, composing a variety of elements for future projects.
The local school tile totem project is moving forward. The tiles have been decorated, glazed, and fired. Assembly will happen this coming week!
I spent a day in front of a video camera, demonstrating how I make one of my yarn bowls, and talking about the process and what had led me to this art form. When the broadcast is ready, I’ll share it through my website!
As I unloaded a glaze kiln firing, I realized my color choices highlighted several reds, whites, and blues. Perhaps it was a subtle nod to today’s Memorial Day holiday. Today, especially, I’ll be thinking of the countless people who have sacrificed their lives to protect me.
