Thanks for popping in.
What a day! If we spin any more, we will go into orbit! So it was a huge relief to be able to make a dash for the pottery studio at lunchtime. Just sat quietly with my squat pot, and gave it some character. Want to see? Hang on, let me find some photos….
Had half an hour before the session ended, so turned my attention to a set of tiles I’m working on at the same time…
It’s a funny old life, innit. Pottery was never on my radar. And yet within a few months, I love it with a passion. It sparks the imagination; it lets me leave this Clarity planet that I live on for just a few hours a week – that’s all I need. Then I come back happily, to crack on with what’s in front of me again. What is YOUR pottery? What it is that gets YOU fired up and creative?
Don’t get me wrong; I love stamping, painting, drawing – of course I do! But it’s my job. I live it, eat it, breathe it, and there is also immense pressure on me to perform in this arena. Whereas pottery? I am completely anonymous. Nobody knows me from Adam. I don’t have to think about ANYTHING, other than making.

Now I am already excited about next week again! Will my squat pot survive the kiln? And will the tiles be pretty? More will be revealed.
Love & Hugs,
