gone to pots

So many ways to play! Here are a few of the results of a 12 week stint of clay play…

In the wonderful studio of Christine Dell, where 2 wheels reside along with tons of tools and supplies for hand building, not to mention the expertise and guidance of a wonderful, skilled and inspired potter!

 

Possibilities are vast when considering form, size, texture and of course the final touch of the glaze…

 

Being committed to this earthy process has been a luscious indulgence! But at the same time, a valuable investment into my creative development. Yay!

 

I am feeling the inner transformation of inner focus of the past season into an outer expansion of curious observation and opened perception. Spring provides a natural atmosphere of play and connection! Lightheartedness!

 

Be Well and Love Life!!

Sprung Spring

Sunday, April 3rd, 2011

Yup, it’s here folks.  Even in moments of other weathers, cold rain that leaves the mountains top white, or sun, that in some concreted doorway feigns the heat of summer, even then, spring absolutely cannot be denied. It shows in the smooth perfect shapes that are squeezing out at the end of every branch, and the early bulbs that push their stiff green, clean and defined up through the surface of soil. Spring is growth and form. And green and life.

So quickly they show themselves, and before i know it, they are fully transformed.

Precious Snowdrops!

White tulips, a birthday gift.

I am crafting up a spring storm. I am especially excited that easter is so late this year, as it means we get to enjoy bunnies and easter eggs for much longer than usual. Workshops at maplerose have been full of bunnies and flowers. One little girl finished her amazing scene of some flowers and trees, green grass and sunshine, looked up at me and said, “I want to go right inside my picture!”, I wanted to as well!! The kids were inspired by these bunny pictures I’ve made over the past couple weeks.


I am hoping that this spring allows me some frequent blog posts, for me right now that means once a week. I do hope you will check in and share in my inspiration and creativity!!
