That's not what made today interesting either. But it provides the backdrop and contrast to what is happening to my home even as we speak (or more accurately, even as I write this, and you read it).
What makes today interesting is the contrast between creation and destruction.
This is what I brought home from ceramics class today.
And this is what my basement looks like:
Creation and destruction. Two halves of the same coin.
And I am thrilled about both processes.
That's what makes today interesting.
Creation, destruction - you're right - can't have one without the other. Nice pottery work, and I hope good progress on the house.ReplyDelete
The destruction seems enormous, beyond comprehension, how can a person possibly begin to reverse it? By starting with what you can do with what you can hold in your hands.ReplyDelete
Those cups look great. I did a pottery class when I first started working and my mother has lovingly kept all the pieces and I am soooooooo embarrassed every time I see my wonky wobbly efforts. And I'm so glad your house is finally on its journey back to you.ReplyDelete
Anne, Diane, and Michele--thank you so much for your kind comments.ReplyDelete
And Michele--I keep something from each of the class sessions so I can chart my progress. Some of my initial efforts were, shall we say, less than stable. LOL
I love the pottery, Lisa. It just may be better than you think it is, most things we craft ourselves are like that.ReplyDelete
But one thought on all of this--in the midst of the mindlessness of that fire, there is that pottery, something in the middle of chaos that you can control, handle, shape and whittle down to size. I'm alright, it says. And you are.
