33 days left in Oz



My stay here in Lismore is coming to an end. But– the end is the beginning of my ten day vacation to Perth after uni stuff finishes πŸ™‚ I will be sad to leave my friends here, but I think I am getting a bit homesick these days. It is my first time overseas, and so far I think I’ve handled it well and enjoyed it. I am only just barely starting to truly enjoy my time here, now that I live in a nice clean place with friendly roommates and neighbors. By the time the day comes for me to leave here, I won’t want to. I know I won’t. But there are people and things I am missing back home… I think this is the longest time I’ve spent not seeing my family. I’ve made good friends here and it almost feels like a family of sorts, but at the same time, I miss the people who put up with me for the last 22 years of my life πŸ™‚

For the remaining time here in Oz, I plan to pack it as full of adventure and good times as I can. Celebrating a friend’s birthday tentatively tomorrow– if not that, I will go out with my new friends to a club or something. I want to go to a few more waterfalls… and then my best friend here is hosting an end of school party at her place a week before I leave. Those are just the things already on the calendar… random fun times seem to happen a lot, too πŸ™‚


As far as studio stuff goes, it’s kind of finished for the time being. I can’t make anything new because everything needs to be fired in time for critique– so I am in the process of bisquing and glazing things. Then the trick will be figuring out how to sell all of the work I can’t take with me. Anyway, here is a pair of female figure sake cups that I made intentionally for the wood firing (which didn’t happen). Instead, I will put a clear glaze on them and fire them in oxidation.
