I'm beginning to notice the amount of work I've created over the past few months. It's all still a little foggy, but I do know I've made a lot of pottery. A lot, a lot, a lot of pottery. To my astonishment I'm realizing this summer that I made inventory nearing the figure I previously produced for the entire year of 2011, all in just 12 weeks. A few more weeks of work and then I'll be ready to fully look back at the summer and really appreciate all I accomplished. Until then I'm enjoying stolen moments of quiet and restfulness, while maintaining much needed momentum. Just one last push of effort and this initial work will all be behind me, but the possibilities this work will bring, well that's only just beginning.

Rainy Studio Days
Summer was a blur of rainy days, making pottery and firing the kiln. I've been working on very exciting orders since May, back to back to back awesomeness. It's been fun, and it's been exhausting. Not monotonous work, but continual work. Each day I continue the process where it was paused the day before. My studio has been in a constant state of motion. Clay and materials cycling in and pots cycling out. I'm not quite at a point of full reflection, as that would suggest an end, a true stopping point, but as several orders are closing in upon completion reflection is close.
