I have thinking a lot about the direction I want my pottery to take these days. Asking myself lots of questions; what am I doing in the studio? what is this going to lead to? And then I realized, it's ok to make creative pottery for the fun of the process and not worry too much about the journey. Maybe it is how I am wired or maybe it is just being an adult, but I feel like I have to account for my time; go to the gym, get groceries, go to work, accomplish x,y,z tasks. It's very interesting if you step back and look at life's progression. I watch my nephews who can draw for hours. They don't worry about "wasting paper" or if they have been outside for 20 minutes or 2 hours. They are in it to have fun and when something stops being fun, they stop doing it. Fast forward 30 years later and you have me, worrying more about wasting an ounce of clay than being loose and experimental in the studio.
