I've reconciled myself to remaining there for the time being, if only because I'm still at least a year off of considering an intensive university program. I've a lot to learn and a lot to become comfortable with before I step out into the world.
In the meantime, I've a strange idea in the works. I've spoken about it with a few of you, and the more I think about it, the more I think it has promise. I need to learn more there, too, but something's coming together.
UPDATE: I spoke with Darrell for a bit last night after having a moderately successful glazing experience, and he seems to think that I should jump in at MassArt as soon as possible. His take was that it's a great opportunity with a lot of room for growth, and that I know pretty much everything I need in order to take that step. Plus, he said that it would be good for the program to have at least one student who didn't assume that "shocking" = "art."
My best glaze last night was the large bowl I threw a few weeks back. There will definitely be pics of that.
