My first clay bowls — before trimming, firing and glazing.
Wow, I can hardly believe that today is February 1, 2011! I don't know where the time has gone!! The last few years have been some of the most challenging of my life, but I am finally starting to find balance in the moving forward process. I just need to channel that balance into my writing and my business. It is obvious from the gaps in my blogging that I have been less than balanced and focused, but at this moment, I lift my coffee mug to better days ahead... and lots of great food adventures to write about and recipes to share!
I have also started taking pottery classes at a local studio. I am really enjoying the time spent working with clay. It is very relaxing and helpful in clearing the mind of anything else that is going on. At that moment, you must focus on the art of creating a pot from a lump of clay and nothing else really matters. I have already made a few bowls and can't wait to learn more and get better at it and make some fun pieces that I can showcase in my kitchen. Hopefully by the time I get my new video blogs lined up for the spring, I will have some of my pottery to display while I am presenting my food!
