I ran into one of my former students Saturday and she asked if I missed being at the Kalamazoo Institute of Arts. I asked if she wanted me to be honest. She said yes. I said I didn’t miss it. She looked stunned. I explained that when you begin doing ceramics all you dream about is having your own studio and your own space to work. I have that now and I love it. I love it more everyday.
Today was my first day back to work for 2013 and it felt so good to throw again. The best part was sketching and making new forms for 2013. Eek! So exciting. It made me smile. I’ll share some photos soon. Here are some new drawings that I will be expanding on this year.
