Christmas sales over but am working hard to get some last minute pieces finished that I should have done last month! Oh well, I wouldn't know what to do if I wasn't scrambling madly to catch up all the things I need to do so I can get to the multitude of things I want to do.
I'm going to the Saturday morning Art of Living yoga and meditation, then 2 Clay Art Association meetings this afternoon (had to skip a rock club meeting last night), then I can spend the remainder of today and most of tomorrow in my studio.
There is a shape I have been working with that I find intriguing and for the first time I am working in series to really explore this form, work out all of the technical problems with it and take it as far as I can. So far it has been successful as different variations and sizes of urns/lidded containers, and not quite so successful as small bottles. I experimented with tall bottles and vases and I think with some tweaking it might be great for that. Currently I am making graceful 4 sides pieces but with a little twist here, an addition or deletion there something new may emerge. Whatever happens with it, I have discovered a wonderful new (for me) way to work and the possibilities are very exiting.
