WA-LAAH!


well, got up before dawn woken from a dream in which i was showing my friend the new pagoda planters, that i wanted to sell in her restaurant. i was very happy with them and explaining that they were only 50% complete without the plants...they planters were a little more abstract in my dream and i remember the shape of one, which i will jot down in my sketch book here so i don't forget. so out to the studio i go in my pajamas and slippers walking the short path i shoveled through the foot plus snow we got yesterday/friday, and near 0 temps. didn't feel a thing i could have done it in bare feet and not felt the cold. do you understand obsession? well i am knee deep in it with my new projects..and i have been waiting close to two days to open this kiln! ...so it was at 140 f, and i cracked it...and wa-lah! there they are in all their splendor..since they have some solid parts that are holding the heat longer, and i the ever patient potter(haha), decided to heavily crack they kiln while i went back in to have coffee and oatmeal..so now i have read my beautiful fellow artist blogs, and much inspired i am more dressed and out the door i go, good thing they didn't exploded, since i started five bigger models yesterday!...i will post pics later, and yes i have some cutting that are ready to be planted..see you later!
