It all begins today, with the arduous task of creating the clays, and casting slips. Then I can start creating forms for molds and collecting the materials to assist me in pulling the whole thing together for an exhibition that is going to take place May 16th to June 27th, 2013 in the BC Crafts Council Gallery on Granville Island, Vancouver BC.
I am going to do my best to document the entire journey, what happens each day in the studio, how it affects my emotional state…. what i am thinking as i progress through the process.
Right now, because nothing has really started to happen I admit I am anxious, and sometimes this type of anxiety causes me to freeze up and do nothing…
so today is STep ONe, “prepare all the materials” and make notes of glaze effects to consider. I keep a journal close at hand as i have to write little notes as i am working, or i forget where my stream of conscious thought was taking me.
