Being back on the wheel gives me time to think again. One of my more perceptive students e-mailed me last night in reference to all the talk in academia of the future of craft. She wrote: Tony you are surrounded by bullshitters and you're outnumbered. I wonder how many of my students will walk the walk?
In my twenties I would have filled the room with pots. A run of 5 jugs would have been embarrassing. With this small kiln our day will be scattered with unloading, glazing, loading, and making. We get to unload a glaze firing in the morn. I hope there is something this time worthy of showing y'all.
To makers of the world- Circle the wagons we're under attack!
