‘That damn pile of work’
Normally it wouldn’t be that literal, but it wasn’t today’s case.
Yes, that is that. The more you want to avoid something the more you have to do with it.
GLAZE is the keyword, the ghost in my head, the overwhelming idea, the recurrent dream and sometimes nightmare. There is it, always glaze, since I started to work at the ceramic studio with Finn I knew that this was going to be my new challenge, to understand and master the art of glazing in a professional and artistic way.
I still remember my first day at work here, I was given papers with names which I haven’t read since high school. It was a list of ingredients, most of them from the periodic table, it reminded me those times at chemistry class and my eternal question ‘What is this useful for?’ I just had to wait 15 years to find out!
Since this early morning I was struggling because I had to decide how to decorate one of my projects, and I couldn’t find any answer, not even after having a look to the tests. The reality is that the more I see, the more I read, the more I do and the more I ask the more I understand that what I want to achieve needs time and hard work, specially intellectual work, patience, testing, trying, courage, creativity, risks, and more patience.
Will I ever get to where I want to go? I don’t know, but I decided to give this a shot, I think is worth it and the way get my work to the level I want.
