To spring from the hand

One of the first clay books I read was Finding Ones Way With Clay, (pub. 1968), my sister gave it to me in in 1975. It is sort of a therapy/art/clay book, well it was the heyday of the '70's!  It had a big (positive) effect on me and what I would end up doing for my life's work.

Paulus BerensoHn the documentary about his life and work go to:

“The word ‘art’, if you go back into its etymological roots, it’s not a noun, it’s a verb, it’s a doing, an acting, and it comes from the root for ‘to join’. So one is behaving artistically, one is in a state of intimacy and communion with the activity at hand”… PB

Spring Cherry and Bees


Outside the studio. I love my cherry tree, given to me on my 49th birthday. :) It is a beauty, and the bees love it too.

Have a magical weekend!

unicorn tile, Cathy Kiffney
“The unicorn lived in a lilac wood, and she lived all alone. She was very old, though she did not know it, and she was no longer the careless color of sea foam but rather the color of snow falling on a moonlit night. But her eyes were still clear and unwearied, and she still moved like a shadow on the sea.” from The Last Unicorn
