quiet time.

sometimes in my studio when the stars are aligned, there is a moment when the light is perfect, there is a sense of calm, the silence is profound, and i feel overwhelmed with gratitude. i love my studio.

perfectly imperfect.

i’m not exactly sure why, but stacks of wonky plates make me really happy.

it could be that it shows the true handmade-ness of the plates, or the beauty in negative space, or the individual personality of each plate, whatever the reason, it never ceases to spark a little joy in me when i pass these piles.

good kind of blue.

i have a strong love for indigo. well, that is sort of an understatement . . . i want everything in my closet to BE indigo ! i’ve been slowly dying my clothes indigo. someone better stop me before i grow out of my blue phase and regret what i have done . . .

going big.

i am supposed to be on sabbatical and making larger nonfunctional works for FUN . . . but i was derailed by a lot of unexpected projects that i had to do. my sabbatical is about to start up again AND i did find the time to make these two large coil built vessels which made me very happy. more of THIS to come. (wilma for scale)
