I Can’t Help It

I Have to Sculpt People It’s been a while, but I had fun making this guy. I’ll do some finishing touches and wait several months before firing him. Let’s pray he doesn’t bust open in the kiln. I’m still learning…. What should I call him? “Life motivation comes from the deep longings of the heart, […]

When the Heart Sings

Clay requires relationship. It moves, acts and reacts to your hands, to time, temperature, to care and love. I’m not a potter in the functional sense. Mugs and plates don’t interest me.
