I threw a couple of other pieces Saturday as well, mostly for the sake of experiment and so I'll have more goods for glaze experiments. I'm flirting with the mindset that pieces are expendable, which is good insofar as it frees me from a great deal of the fear and anxiety that something will go wrong (or I'll do something wrong) at some point in the process. I could describe it as removing the ego to get at the Self, but for now it's sufficient to say that it's an important step. Art is funny.
I like cheese, which will go a long way to explaining why I'm headed to a cheese tasting at BCAE tonight. And, since the outlay for the evening happened a couple of months ago, it feels like I'll be sampling a bevy of sexy cheeses for free. (I know, I know. Don't confuse me with your logic.)
Did I mention there'd be wine? My evening is filled with deliciousness.
