Is it spring yet???

March Pots at Simons Rock 006

I decided not to go to NCECA this year. The thought did cross my mind a few months ago when I thought about how close Providence is from here. I could easily take a bus and go for one day, if I wanted to. I just didn’t want to. Maybe it’s partially because I am lazy, but I just don’t feel the need to go every year, and this year I couldn’t find any compelling reasons. Maybe in my future I will be part of one of the fancy clay booths (probably after grad school) or in grad school if I am part of a guild I might go to promote the grad program, but for this year, I’ve already researched grad schools I am interested in, and the next step is to visit. If NCECA were held somewhere a little warmer, I might have thought more about it. It doesn’t matter how close the event is to me, it’s about whether I care to go or not.

On another note, I have been really busy in the studio. It is the tail end of the two-week spring break for the students. I’ve had the entire studio almost to myself for the last week and a half, and making good use of it. I glaze fired two kiln loads of pots, imaged them, and for the last three days I have been working on a giant coil pot planter for the wood firing coming up. I’ve also started making some elongated plate forms. In this post are three of my most recent photos of work 🙂
