Kissed By The Flame

Some pots are quiet, they don’t speak of carving or imagery. This one didn’t even speak of glaze colors or designs. Sometimes it’s a good idea to listen to the quiet. That would probably have been a better name for this post, maybe it’s the name of the vase. With nothing but a spearmint liner glaze, this piece was placed in the soda kiln. It’s about 11 inches tall so it was put in the top with a sculpture and a few other tall pieces. The soda and the flame did the decoration.

The vase is still very quiet but I think it came out well. I’m pleased with the painting the soda and flame did.

Thinking About Japan

In a time of drastic change 
one can be too preoccupied with what is ending or too obsessed with what seems to be beginning.
 In either case one loses touch with the present and with its obscure but dynamic possibilities. 
You do not need to know what is happening, or exactly where it is all going. 
What you need is to recognize the possibilities & challenges offered by the present moment, 
and embrace them with courage, faith & hope. 
In such an event, courage is the authentic form taken by love.
