running into a new year

_MG_1055 copy.jpgRunning into the new year I scanned back through the photos I took in 2012.  Images catch in my hair like strong fingers and memories of objects I have wanted to make since I was 16, 26, 36 and 46. It has been a year of revisiting ideas through bowls and plates. I am looking forward to 2013  and how it brings new twists turns to projects and ideas.

"i am running into a new year
and the old years blow back
like a wind
that i catch in my hair
like strong fingers like
all my old promises and
it will be hard to let go
of what i said to myself
about myself
when i was sixteen and
twenty six and thirtysix
even thirtysix but
i am running into a new year
and i beg what i love and
i leave to forgive me"
Lucille Clifton


It is always nice to look back to the year that was. In fact, I personally like having a blog just because I can browse through the archives and reminisce about the events that happened in my life. However, I have never been craftsy so I do admire your work.

oh those images in the sketchbooks... it's always such a wonder to me that I can look in one of my sketchbooks from twenty, ten, five, years ago and see images I still want to make at the wheel.
Loving this image of your plates! Hope you are well!
