Fun with clay

This great photo by Geraint Smith. Earth, clay. My life as it was has changed. I am now obsessed with clay. I would like to say that after my seven hour day working with it yesterday, that I had something to show. I do not :-). I did learn a lot about what not to do, however. I tried to do too much too soon. I used too much water and I did not get my coils even enough. Basically my bowl turned into a cup and then it caved in on itself :-). I should have taken a photo of it, but I did not think of it until now. It would have made you laugh, it did me. I think it will be a little while before my vision of what I wanted to create becomes reality. I am just fine with that :-). I am now ready to go slower, be more aware and take all the time I need. Good lessons to learn for all things. I had great fun too and I could have went for hours more, but my back and shoulder started to give me problems. Another reason to pace myself :-). I hope you are all having a terrific weekend.
