After bemoaning the lack of NCECA feedback and photos early yesterday, a couple of more digest emails arrived from Clayart with a few more members sharing their experiences; and I found the above slide show video on you tube this morning. I have two suggestions to make before watching it. Turn off the sound. It was as irritating to these ancient ears as the sound of fingernails running down a blackboard.
The video is a rapid fire slide show, so my other suggestion would be to keep your mouse arrow pointed to the pause button the whole time, so you can stop it and get a better look at the work. There is a very generous amount of photos on this video and to really appreciate the work, you may want to use the pause buttom periodically.
We are on day two of a week of rain in the forecast, so my gardening will probably be confined to indoors. Today is the last day with the family before they head back to California tomorrow morning. We're all getting together again for dinner so I have a good part of the day at home before we head out for dinner.
With all the rain in the forecast, it looks like I may get in studio time in between seedling care, cooking, computer and other chores this week. Being optimistic, I turned the studio heat on a few minutes ago and it should be warm enough after breakfast to get in there and make a decision as to where to start again, after I put away some recently purchased clay and other items. There's a small group of bone dry pots waiting for some sgraffito work and that's the most likely place to start. It's a good sit down job that my aching, arthritic hip will appreciate in this cool, damp weather.
