This building is called The Pines. The Dining Hall is here, the coffee shop and some housing. This was shot from the porch on the clay studio. Its a great day here today, not too hot, nice and sunny.
Ayumi did a wet throwing demo of mugs and teapots (w. parts). She's got a cool system for making lids. I'll try and get some pics of it this evening. I forgot to take pics of the dry throwing demo yesterday but she'll be doing more so I'll be sure and snap a few.
This is Dave from Detroit. He sits beside me in the studio. Cool guy, he's a mechanical engineer by day working on safety systems for GM. He knows all the crash test dummies!
I feel good today. I've found some direction and have ideas about what I want to think about/work on while here. It's sort of easy to put pressure on myself to make some sort of breakthough while here or something. What I realized this morning was that I just need to pay attention, slow down, and work. And Look. And pay attention. And ask myself questions. And have Fun. No problem!
