Here's to the corners yet to turn
I haven't done a show in a loooooooooong time and I thought I never would again. 260 Fingers in Ottawa is the brain child of my friend Chandler Swain and I think it may well be the path to follow. Good potters inviting good potters to be in a show. None of this I am a member of the guild so I get to show my pie cutter work. This is an invitational show, a badge of honour and not a right of passage. I'm rollin' the dice with this show as I haven't done anything like this solo for decades and the work I have made is somewhat edgy, somewhat nasty, somewhat pretty and nasty and if the kiln god's are kind could be the best in a long time. I spent the entire day glazing and decorating less than 50 pots. I would usually have glazed the entire kiln load. I go back at it tomorrow. I'm excited about the work and that is worth dreaming about. Here's to corners yet to turn. Here's to bridges left to burn. Here's to the whole thing coming undone. Here's to the life of a potter!
