While writing about being stuck, I was inspired by a friend, Lucia Maya,
of Luminous Ceramics (beautiful pottery in Maui colors).
She published a quote (see below) that moved me, and came on the heels of me finding a small chip on one of our beloved bowls. We love handmade pottery, and each piece we own has memories, and fills our hearts when we use them.
Trying to capture the lovely organic glazes on our bowl, which fits into my palms.
I was heartbroken to see a small chip in it,
though Mitchell will repair it so that it does not further disintegrate.
Repairing it and continuing to use it will now be part of the memories and charm…
Nicola Gillis is now a potter I also follow!
Both women create beautiful, simply stunning pieces, very different.
This is one of the first pieces I’ve done that was not part of Virtual Sketchwalk,
but meaningful to me and sketched in my sketchbook of memories.
“Memory is more indelible than ink.”
Anita Loos, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes.
“I think not….”
