This is one of my favorite "older" pieces. The surface lacks what I have been able to give my more recent work. So she's getting a face-lift. A new base to add stability and a complete re-firing to improve the surface. Hello, beautiful!

I have been building skyward with the the body parts I created in my first torrent of activity. It's much slower now as I consider how each piece fits into the whole. It must balance and work from all sides. I work on a turn-table so I can keep it flowing.

I have been feeling the need to make something big. Maybe several somethings big. I felt I was lacking in studio space, but by cleaning off the cluttered work surfaces and putting a new top on 2 of them, I have made space for myself to work to the scale I had imagined. What I didn't imagine is just how exhausted I would become moving that much clay (about 50 lbs.) in the space of a few hours. Tomorrow I can start putting pieces together and see if I'm as clever as I think I am.
