There are some things better left said by clay. I learned this from Mr. Kent, our high school Art Instructor. Clay dries as clay wants to dry depending on the environment you are working in. In other words, it dries when it dries. Probably a lesson for all of us, we control a lot less of Creation than we would like to think. A great lesson for youth…work the clay, have a vision on where you’re going and what you want, but be free and flexible with the outcome. You only have as much say concerning your creation as the world allows. Listening to the voice of clay, or the voice of air, or the voice of humidity is a lesson for all of us?
