Hanging on until the river flows again
"When you do things from your soul, you feel a river moving in you, a joy."
I was just hanging on... There were days when I just didn't feel like I could do another day in the studio.
That’s the honest truth about why I skipped my spring online event, moving through a whole season without showing you what I’ve been up to.
I’ve wanted to hop on here, fudge the truth, and tell you all that I’ve been nose-to-the-grindstone, working on huge collections of mugs, bowls and platters.
While I’ve completed orders and restocked gallery inventory, the reality is that it was slow-going.
And then I gave myself the freedom to treat myself to new color, imagery, and even some brand new forms. I’ve spent many hours engrossed in following random paths of new-to-me ways of working, like a blood hound sniffing at any trail that felt interesting. If it lost its spark, it was abandoned for the next shiny idea that caught my imagination.
For months, it’s been too new, unfinished and unresolved to even talk about.
I’m only telling you about it now because it’s led to something real, transformed into finished work that incorporates the old with the new. It’s also led me back to why I’m a maker, that feeling of discovery and “not knowing” that I cherish.
And it's led me back to you. I want to share my excitement again and take you with me on this journey. Come on along!
