I enjoyed reading Ron Philbeck's blog post about thinking of his work area as a sacred space. After I read it, I thought about what my wheel looked like and had a hard time seeing it as a sacred space at that moment. See photo below and you will understand! I made a huge mess last week, trying to get back into some sort of routine and I need to be in there right now cleaning up. It does feel good when your work space has been freshly cleaned, you have warm water for the wheel, the ware boards are washed, tools are sharp and clean, and everything is in it's place. This is a rare moment for me, but I like it when it's that way.
Here are a few pictures from my pyrotechnics last week. I also need to get some good photographs made. Wesley got her driver's license last week, so I may have more time now, less taxi duties for me hopefully!
