These days, I dream in shapes— bowls deep and sweeping or shallow and wide slung. I also dream in glazes, Staley’s Red, Ancient Jasper and Floating Blue. In bed at night before sleeping, I scour Pinterest for interesting clay sites and videos. Yunomis, altered forms, slab built designs, they all delight me. And that is before I get my hands on the clay, which is finally beginning to behave in my hands, allowing me to shape it into intentional forms. I am exceedingly grateful to be a student of this vast art form, and to have found a new community that loves to play in the mud. I am home!
