What will they be?

Last Sunday in an hour I threw these 4 bowl shapes, 3.5 - 4 pounds of clay each.

Then worked on them more after they had set-up on Monday...and trimmed the bottoms on Tuesday.  My process is very slow these days!

I also spend time looking through social media to see what I want to focus some of my attention on.  I am feeling there will be a way sometime to use crafts to speak to the events that are so unsettling in our world today.

Bomb threats to Jewish Community Centers all over the US, as well as synagogues...I just have to put my foot into that place. All minorities are part of our wonderful whole community, and I want to share my concerns and hope that support by sharing in a loving way might help somehow.  So the picture above is now my FaceBook Profile picture. Remember when we (many of us) put the French Flag on our profiles?

Justice will be served. Only love can defeat hate.

Today's Quote:

For though my faith is not yours and your faith is not mine, if we each are free to light our own flame, together we can banish some of the darkness of the world.
Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks

  1. Lately I have to push myself to get in the studio to work. Current events are really put a drain on me.


Looking forward to hearing from you! Since I didn't know the 1000+ people who supposedly looked at my blog the other day, I'm back to moderating comments. If that doesn't help, I don't know why blogger doesn't have a filter that stops this hacking...
