Sunday. A day for bread and plates


In the house there is a levain fed for the bread and in the studio I am preparing clay to make plates and to supply Dandelion, a new tapas restaurant in Seattle, with some local flavor.

I am back in my studio and I becoming alive. There is less haste as the work begins again. I am aware of every movement. Like a working meditation, I move with full awareness and intention towards the next step. I am learning to slow down and embrace the moment. Taking in the essence of the act and processing the work as I let go. I am under-thinking and in these moment of letting go the mind expands and new possibilities are realized. I have to make 75 plates. I am preparing to make over 100 in order to allow the freedom of expression to expand and release the stress of perfection.
