What advice would you give someone starting this project? All things worth anything take time and we have to give ourselves the time to learn new things. Nothing of value comes easy. I have broken so many things over the last two years and yet I still continue to try to make and learn new things. A few things are wonderful and everyone loves them and then I wear them and of course they get broken because I am not an easy person with a light touch. Yet the time they were loved and shone to the world I was on cloud nine. There are a few, very few whom to this day wear things I have made and that makes me feel pretty good inside because when we bottom line it we do not just make things to make ourselves happy but to please others. :) and it takes time.

I love the colors of this piece. The glazes feel sun-drenched and full of the sun's energy. The rekindle the spirit of joyful childhood play freedom from fear letting go of negative thoughts and letting yourself soar into imagination creativity and bliss

lmao you know sometimes I forget the things I say or the way I feel. Thank you for reminding me that anything worth anything is not easy and is going to have to be earned. :)
