For now, let me just say that I desperately need to get back into the studio. Ideally, this would mean getting my ass into the Mudflat Studios for the next semester, but I'll happily settle for another stint with BCAE if need be. Checking their website, it looks like there's an "independent study" section starting next Wednesday with their resident Japanese pottery specialist, so I may see if I can't get in on that. I may also try to score the Mudflat tuition from my folks for X-mas. Mom wanted to get me one big gift, and as much as I’d like a camera, I think this might be more important.
I think I'm going to run down to BCAE with a box shortly so I can collect some of my pieces that have been sitting on shelves since my hiatus. Well, hopefully... I know that there was a strong move to clean out the studio when I was last in, so there is an outside possibility that my first two sake jars were unceremoniously disposed of. It would make me sad, but like many things that have gone wrong recently, it would because I wasn't paying proper attention. Mea culpa.
