As we enter into a new season, I have set some intentions for myself. I have been reading Finding One's Way With Clay by Paulus Berensohn. This book has given me new perspective while working in my studio. The suggested exercises have opened up new ideas to try and spark creativity. Ideas I would like to share with others in new adult classes that are designed not for an end product, as with a lot of programs available, but for the process of reflecting and really becoming engaged with the material in your hands.
I have also begun a journey way outside of my comfort zone. Introducing myself and my art to others outside my family and circle of friends. As with most artist, their work is met with the ever criticizing eye , finding areas where improvements could be made. I have decided that I create functional art to be used and the time might never be right. I will always be learning and improving, but in order to grow I must spread my roots.
Look for new class session starting mid April. If you see a class you are interested in, but no session, please contact me. ~ Julie
