In the Beginning

May 7, 2012 § Leave a comment

Even a terracotta bowl has to start life somewhere, often simply a block of earth, cool and damp to the touch, but soon, in the hands of a potter, a shape forms and evolves from the spinning and whirring of clay.  But it is not the end, decorations need to be made, glazes need to be concocted and applied and multiple firings often await before the end of the day.  Sometimes it takes week for that humble lump of mud to finish its metamorphous, but at other times the process is over with rapidity.

It is less than 2 weeks to go now before the exhibition.  Is the artist ready?  Is there still time for one more piece?
