4th of November – a bowl that fits

November 4th, 2010 at 10:00

I’ve done another pottery piece. Now that I’m beginning to understand the texture and material and how it responds to continuous prodding and pushing and stroking I did this bowl this morning. It is similar to the very small one I made from the leftover clay two days ago. I like the way the bowl sits in my hand. J said there is something spiritual about the shape.

I’m really enjoying this pottery thing. I could get used to that as a daily activity, make coffee, go up to the studio, make a bowl or something, then have breakfast and get on with the rest of the day. Something very meditative. It’s quiet in the house, I have some soft music playing in the background, there is a soft bit of winter sunlight breaking through the gray sky. It’s a very magical moment somehow.

Last night I decided to put on another batch of garden soil to be turned into more clay. I might blog about that later.

    Thank you Angie, what do you think, should I do a give away one of these days? For Thanksgiving maybe? Maybe… :-)

    I love this so much. Very elegant.

    A little parcel arrived for me today with a beautiful butterfly tile inside. It now sits with the rest of my lovely collections of Ines goodies. Thank you, my dear xx

    Are you serious?! That is the cutest little bowl I’ve ever seen! It’s got an organic sort of feel to it. Love it.
