And there is second quandry too. My very great friend and mentor Barbara, wants me to do a ^6 redux firing with her in May. I want to do this... mostly, she has beautiful shinos that did great in our first effort and I like firing with her, I love her kiln and I love shinos. But, it has my mind split into two personalities which doesn't suit me well. I am in a groove with the house thing and have two shows and several galleries to get work made for. I like my terra sig, we know each other well and we are happy together. I have no idea what I want to make for this ^6 redux, do I get back on the wheel and make bowls, do I try some houses with shinos...maybe... do I hand build some bottles, do I throw some vases. I have no dang idea what I want to do, there is no inspiration there, and I have to get something made soon. My hope is to take one day and just get some things made, and I have the days, just don't know what to make.....
And there is yet a third quandry! I got an email from Lark and Key that the show I am in for June will be called Storytellers. I LOVE this! But now I want to make some new pieces to go with this title, which requires some exploration of new shapes and ideas, and I have that ^6 to think about.....
So, I am in a quandry this week. What I have decided to do is to roll out some slabs and just see where it takes me. I also got an email from a good blogger friend that she has some treasure for me! Oh boy!! Maybe that will be just the inspiration I need. And of course when all of you creative and wonderful people read this you are going to leave me all sorts of ideas and suggestions, now aren't you!?!?!?!
1. what to do about Picasa
2. should I start a new blog
3. what do I make for a ^6 shino that will relate to my houses
4. what sorts of stories do I want to tell with my houses
these are my posers for the week :)
