Missing summer camp?
On Saturday, I just couldn't make anything I was happy with on the potter's wheel, so I made a slab wall pocket that looked like the work of an average 8-year-old. So then yesterday I bought some hemp cord for a clay project and had the hankering to make an anklet or bracelet. I got some pony beads out from my stash of craft supplies and made the anklet above.
Guess I kind of miss not going to summer camp, or at least the arts and crafts part of it.
Visit Yosemite or, oh heck, visit every national park in the U.S.
A really good pot is in the details. --Doug Casebeer at the Ceramics Workshop in Jamaica '10
There's only one way to grow while making art: take risks and allow yourself to make a lot of bad work, then look at it. I consider what is working well, what missed the mark or confused the reading, what needs to be adjusted on the next one. --Linda Arbuckle in The Penland Book of Ceramics
All great actions have been simple, and all great pictures are. --Ralph Waldo Emerson
