Setting myself up for failure– as a challenge to overcome


This photo is of a cup that I pulled out of my cone 10 oxidation firing last week. I loved how it turned out. The only thing wrong was that I think the glaze was a bit too thin for crystal growth to occur. Hopefully I can be more patient with glazing for the firing I plan to do this weekend.

Ok, so I don’t actually plan on failing at anything. BUT– I am setting a lot of goals to get done by the weekend’s end. The first thing I should actually be worrying about is creating a powerpoint for Art History. I’ve got most of the images already, thanks to my professor for lending me a book.

Right now I’m listening to Neutral Milk Hotel, sipping on a glass of Australian shiraz, and pondering how in the world I will accomplish everything on my weekend list. It’s currently Thursday night here, late. I am simultaneously working on two of the items on my list: revising my artist statement for an assignment and filling out info online for the Windgate Fellowship Award 2014. I guess I’ve got good progress on three of the listed things, but to make things just a little bit more crazy, I’m gonna see if I can balance a personal social life tomorrow night by planning a date where I said I would make dinner and then I signed out a gas kiln for Sunday. Yeah. I know. I’m a crazy person. But somehow, I think I will be able to get it all done. I’m not completely confident about the art history powerpoint yet, but I think I can handle the rest. 😉
