Sigh........

So glad Gerry captured this moment before I sent these to the Mudfire show. I usually have time like this to bond with my pieces before I send them off. I didn't have a chance to do that with the pieces I took to Lark and Key, I didn't even get really great photos of them. I like to put new work on my old english pine kitchen table and look at them throughout the day, watching the way the light plays with the shadows, and making sure they are meaningful before they go to another home. These are still available, but if they don't sell, I think they will stay with me. My friend Susan once told me that when my pieces didn't sell, I wasn't ready to let them go. That might have been true about these. I really love them, sigh.............

So much soul in each piece. Love them!

This is a truly stunning photo. if I were you I'd try and hang to these pieces, they are going to create a lot of attention with this shot.
I love them.

after the word Hang should have been another word " ON ".
another case of brain going faster than fingers!

Paul, thanks for your comment! The photo really speaks to the light that we get in our kitchen, I love it. When Wesley is here she sits at this table and writes, looking out into the woods.... a nice place to be for her and my houses :)

The world can run at such a fast pace; in that much can be lost. Time is a gift. I think artists need even more space and time to think... and ponder and decide whether not to keep pottery! :) I do the same. Some of my pieces are still with me.

I know exactly what you mean, Tracey. It *does* take time to get to know a piece, to really absorb it. I also find that my relationship to my own work can change considerably. There are quite a few pieces which I hated when they first came out of the kiln...that I subsequently grew to love after simply sitting and living with them for a few weeks or months (or even years!)

I love this Tracey....you should consider mounting these pieces on the board and selling it as one!

Tracey Broome said...

Hi Suzi, thanks!
Amy, I have a few pieces of my work that were just too hard to part with. The house with the cross may be one of them if it doesn't sell...
Yolande, where have you been! I miss your blog!!
I'm the same way, I have some bowls that I made and hated, now I love and use often. Funny ow that happens with our initial expectations of what a piece should be.
Jody, I had thought of that, but it would be a rather expensive piece.....
