I love the ceramics studio at UICA. It's like a laboratory where i'm less concerned about the results of my experiments than I am in my drawing studio--I feel like I can let go more when I've got clay smooshed between my fingers. I made these little possums a few weeks back, and they just came out of the kiln!
There's also something very different about having something you can hold in your hand versus something you hang on the wall. hese precious babies will probably need tucking in tonight.
