Some more thoughts from my last post. I didn't mean to seem negative. I consider myself to generally be quite optimistic and full of hope. I don't know where this endless hope seems to come from, but it's around after every up and down. The pretty picture I'm painting here at this blog hasn't been fluffed up by any means. It's an honest account of my observations and inspirations. My observations in life is what builds up my energy and keeps me going. It is what I put wholeheartedly into every piece that I create. If I didn't see all the beauty and wonder around me, I don't know how I could keep being inspired to make things. I'm very thankful that I notice these things.
I don't know why I feel like I have to defend myself from what I wrote last night. I guess this is coming from the other employee in my head, the cheerleader.
It's a fresh day in the studio today. I've been making a lot of bowls this week. I have them everywhere drying, waiting for the impressed textures. These are slightly squared, which is done on the wheel right after I throw it, using the inside part of my finger.
Have a good day!
