My kids are off with grandparents and I found myself with a little extra time. What a novel thing “time.” Of all the ways to spend my time, the clay is just calling me this week. I have flirted with this exercise for a while – 100 cups. It took me a while to get in a rhythm but today I threw 40, it seemed to work the best with Pandora on the computer. Tomorrow I trim and add handles and throw 40 more. I only have 3 days but they are wide open. My normally chilly basement studio is a great escape during this heat and from this quiet home.
