"Pick your risk and take it"
You might not be able to tell from the interior of my home, but I love interior design. I love the backgrounds. The POTTERY in the backgrounds. I always hope that my pottery finds a "good home". A special spot on the shelf, wall, mantle, or table, etc. I want it to be loved and used. More on the details of the project later, but I am so pleased and proud that my work has been chosen to be a piece of something so amazing. P.S. If you have purchased my pottery, you have really good taste.
When I am making these bowls I am in a different mind set than I ever have been before in the studio. I don't like the weight of the mindset. I am going to change it. It's production work. Repetitive. I stress about this deadline coming up. Will more blow? Will they crack? Is there really any way that these will dry in time to be fired, glazed and fired again? So much heavy worry. I am going to detach from that. NOW. When I am carving these pieces, I find so much peace in the individuality in each piece. They are beautiful. Someone will love them. I made them. I appreciate this gift and I intend to honor it more than I do. I am going to take the fear out of the equation....starting NOW. Inhale, Exhale. Whew.
"Just keep working" my husband says. Here I go!
