Yesterday was one of those rainy days that were cool, breezy, and enjoyable. Even though blue and I got wet several times we had a fabulous day. The best part was in the evening when I called up to some friends here in my own breezeway. Blue and I had not visited with them in quite some time. After a little chat we started talking about my pottery. I went inside and got them to pieces which were similar yet different in many ways. Lee my neighbor who is recovering from some broken bones due to a fall and is currently in a wheelchair exclaimed over his declaring, “it’s a soap dish a beautiful soap dish this looks as good as something I would purchase in a store. How wonderful. “And began discussing where he would put it
My other neighbor Shirley, decided “it’s a coaster. “I told her I was a bit unsure of that since I wasn’t positive that it set level he was she said she was going to try it and so far as I know she hasn’t spilled anything yet
During all this I stood too long on concrete. Now my sciatica is singing. But today pottery was magnificent. I made new pieces. I began to try my wings. I had a pleat piece of clay which was cut to a specific size and head turned itself into an odd shape following the outline of the shape and what it appeared to be to me in my mind I begin creating. It is waiting to become leather hard and then low fired.
I am taking it easy blue is taking a nap. Through all of this his behavior has been amazing. You guys have a super great rest of your day. The humidity of June is here.
